DIY Chain Bracelets!

4 years ago

I`ve been loving DIYs lately, and have very cool DIYs like DIY chain bracelets! **All credits go to**

These bracelets are perfect for BFF bracelets or gifts for the holidays like Valentine`s Day or Christmas (as goodies to give to friends/family).

What youll need:

Embroidery needle
Embroidery floss in bright colors
Linked chains about 4 long (can be found at craft storesuse pliers to separate the links if necessary)

What youll do:
Step 1: Gather six strands of embroidery floss (each should be about 12 inches long) and knot the ends together on one side. Begin to braid about 3 inches of the length and knot all the strings at the end of the braid, leaving a long tail.

Step 2: Divide the strands into two sections, so three strands are in each, then thread the first section through the embroidery needle and begin weaving through two lengths of chain, whipstitching in one direction. The embroidery floss should connect both lengths of chain.

Step 3: Once you have woven the floss in one direction as shown in the images above, take the other section of floss and begin to weave in the opposite direction creating criss-crosses.

Step 4: After having completed the criss-cross design between the two chains, knot the end and braid the rest of the tail like the first step. Voilà! Youve not got a beautiful and colorful bracelet thatll rock your wrist this summer.
