Beauty DIY: Braided Hex Nut Bracelet

Published on Wednesday, August 31, 2011 in , , ,

Fall is almost here which means it's time to accessorize, accessorize, accessorize!  Instead of spending loads of money on new jewelry to dress up your fall looks, become a DIY diva!  I came across a really cute bracelet that I can't wait to try myself.  I found it a a great website by the name of Ram Shackle Glam.

Here's What You'll Need:

❤ 3 strands of twine cut into one yard pieces
❤ 18 small brass hex nuts

Here's What To Do (via):

❤ Gather 3 strands of twine and tie a knot at the top, leaving about 2 inches of slack.
❤ Start braiding, remember that at an inch of the way down, you’ll start braiding in the nuts. 
❤ Before you braid the far left strand over the middle strand, thread on a nut, push it against the base of the braid, and crossover.
**Note** Depending on the thickness of the twine, you can wrap tape around the bottom tips to prevent the twine from fraying
❤ Keep your thumb at the base of the braid, holding the nut in its place. 
❤ Before you braid the far right strand over the middle, thread on another nut, push it against the base of the braid and crossover. 
❤ Again, hold your thumb tightly against the base of the braid, keeping the nuts in place. 
❤ Thread another nut onto the far left piece and crossover.
❤Repeat the steps, by threading the rest of the nuts to the outer pieces of twine before they are crossed over. Thread, cross, thread, cross. 
❤ Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided twine and a knot.

Here's How To Wear It:
