Yep. I said it. And you can't just throw out the word GENIUS often. This DIY bracelet idea has been on my mind for months and when my Friday run took me by a little hardware store on Venice Blvd... I picked up a whole slew of these gold hex beauties.
I kind of love my new bracelet. And it only took me about ten minutes....
Start with some string....
Add Hex nuts...
Knot the string together at the top ( I used three strands bunched together- nine total ). Braid the strands for a few inches, then begin adding hex's at each strand, just thread on before you cross over!
Le Fine! I added the tassle idea myself.
All you need?
Friendship bracelet style string
Small Hex nuts
Tape (you're going to want to tape it down while you are working.
A very small amount of talent with threading and braiding
I had originally seen this idea here- on Honestly...WTF. This well titled page is going to make you think... why didn't I think of that? about a million times over. They probably have better directions too :)
