How to Make Plastic Bracelets
The following is a guest post from our friends at I Spy DIY.
The amazing Jenni got together with a few friends during the hurricane that hit the east coast and made old school bracelets. She gives us the 411 on how to make these bracelets for yourself (without a major storm).
Supplies: Gimp, or Lester lace as we called in back in the day, from Blick Art (less than $ 2 a roll), scissors, and a fastener. Steps after the break…
Cut two piece, each as long as your wingspan.
Start by threading the black strand through the fastener loop, and move it to the middle of the strand.
Wrap around the front and back of your finger.
Take your orange string under both black loops, and put till you reach the middle of your orange strand
Next take the right end of the orange and go over and under in the front, and then take the left end and go over and under in the back.
Pull slowly to create a square knot
Next loop your orange pieces over the square knot diagonally
Thread the right end of the black through the orange hoop in the back, Thread the left black end through the orange hoop in the front.
It should look like this as you pull the four pieces
Repeat and the pattern should like this
When your bracelet is long enough to fit around your waist, tie all four pieces in a knot at the end. Then thread one strand through the other end of the fastener
Tie the ends in another knot and trim ends.
