Layering colorful cords is the happening accessory statement these days, and with the prices rising on these little pieces, I found a super simple way to make your own! The best part: these homemade bracelets work for all ages, styles, and personalities.
For the professionals and moms alike, these are uber-chic to wear with a nice watch to work or with a cute blouse on a double date night, but they can translate on the cuff into a cutesy project for your daughters too! Or, stumped on a gift idea? “It’s just the thought that counts” is simply a bonus!
Follow Sophie Okulick’s guide to making these happy wristlets! Whether it’s a random “thinking of you” present, or a party favor, these will step your style up a notch with a sentimental touch.
What you’ll need:
-31/2 ft of colorful cord
-2 inches of chain link
-1 small bolt that matches the chain
Step 1 - Cut your rope into two equal sections, fold one piece in half and string through one end of your chain link tying a loop knot
Step 2 - With the same rope now attached, tie a loose double knot where your bolt closure will go through.
Step 3 - Repeat step 2 with the other piece of rope tying a few knots to keep your blot from sliding down the rope.
Step 4 - String your bolt though and tie a few tight knots to hold the bolt in place
Step 5 - Cut the remaining string on both ends.
