DIY Tutorial: Tribal Bracelets
A tutorial that was photographed very nicely for one of my school assignments and I’ve finally found time to share this here on Operation Overhaul! Hope you like this one, it’s really easy to make!
Here are the materials you’ll need:
- Elastic Cord (from any hardware store)
- 4 Different Coloured String
- 2 End Clasps
- 3 Jumprings
- Lobster Clasp
- Long Nose Pliers
1. Cut the elastic cord to about 4”. This should be slightly shorter than a usual bracelet. (TIP! To prevent the ends from fraying, quickly pass the ends through a flame or simply apply nail varnish.)
2. Using the first colour, tie a clove hitch knot (simply make an “x” then put the end through!) to secure down.
3. Keep wrapping the string around the cord, securing the loose end down in the process.
4. To change colour, tie a half hitch knot and snip off the excess. Repeat Step 2 over the loose end with a new colour.
5. When done, cover the end with a end clasp. Secure down with superglue if needed. Repeat to the other end.
6. Then, using a jumpring, secure a lobster clasp to the end clasp. This will allow you to wear your bracelet with ease.
7. You’re done!
A couple more photos of the completed bracelets worn, such easy ways to add colour into your outfit! You might even want to leave some parts of the elastic cord exposed if its of a nice design/colour! (Refer to the first photo). Have fun! x
