Bracelet season is officially here! So let’s make an easy and fun summer bracelet full of color!
-Cotton cord for the base of the bracelet (use a thick one, I used 2mm)
-Various thin (1mm or less) cotton cords in bright colors for the wrapping
-Fish connector charm
-2 metallic beads with big holes
-An evil eye bead
First measure the cord you’ll need for your wrist and double that size. Cut the cord in two equal pieces and slide each piece to each one of the holes of your connector charm.
Now take a small piece of one of the colorful cords, make two tight knots and wrap it around the base cord a few times like you see in the picture.
Repeat this process with another color like this
Now do the same with two more colors for the other side of the bracelet. Cut off any excess cord and burn the edges so it doesn’t fray.
Now bring both ends of the base cord together to make an adjustable macrame closure. Take a piece of the colorful cord and first tie a knot over the two ends.
Next, bring right cord under middle cords and over left cord like this.
Pull tight and the first knot will look like this
Next, bring left cord under middle cords and finally over right cord. Pull tight.
Repeat this process for a few knots more and when you are satisfied with the closure, cut off any excess cord and burn the edges. It will look like this :
Slide the metallic beads on each side and make knots so that the adjustable closure doesn’t come off.
Finally with the help of the eyepin, attach the evil eye bead too.
That’s it! Your colorful summer bracelet is ready! Feel free to get addicted and make a bunch of them!
