Christina liked the bracelet in my outfit styling contribution “Urlaub von meinen Jeans”. Because I made this jewelry myself, she asked me for a DIY tutorial for this bracelet. I promised her, but because of my acute lack of time, this DIY fashion tutorial follows unfortunately only now.
Material And Tools – For This DIY Project You Need
- Cord (the wider the line, the more voluminous gets the jewelry)
- Different colored braided twines
- Adhesive tape (to fix)
- Chain lock (alternatively, a wooden bead)
DIY Tutorial: The Step-By-Step Craft Instructions
DIY Step 1
The white cord is used as a carrier for the braided twines and should be fixed at the beginning of the clasp for jewelry. If you don’t want to use a clasp, you can instead pull the cord through a large wooden bead (see the last large photo in the instructions).
DIY Step 2
Knot the braided twines several times with the carrier cord.
DIY Step 3
Before you start with the braiding, fix the clasp with some tape on a hard surface (table).
TIP: To prevent the twins to knot themselves, wrap the individual twins to small balls as shown in the picture.
DIY Step 4
Now you start the braiding. Therefore you take the first twin and make a simple knot over the other lines, including the carrier cord.
DIY Step 5
How far your braid with a single color depends on your taste. I liked to get a lot of “color changes”. For such a change, you just lay the twin to the others and continue knotting with the next twin.
DIY Step 6
When you reach the desired length, knot all twins and the cord several times with each other. I have decided to tinker quite long braided cords, so I can wear them either as a necklace (with more braided jewelry and simple silver necklaces – Boho-like) or as a bracelet.
TIPP: If you twist the braided necklace itself, beautiful patterns will be created on the braided jewelry.
DIY Step 7
Finally, attach the counterpart of the clasp and knot everything several times. Cut off the remains. DONE!
Here is the version with a wooden bead as a closure.
