DIY: Friendship Bracelet


Layering bracelets of all types has been a major hit on my wrists as of late! And I have been breaking all the rules and mixing metals. What can I say, rule breaker over here! So a couple nights ago while watching TV, I decided to make another. I rummaged around in my craft drawer, came out with some random cording and chains. 


Opened the chain, to a length which matched the width of my wrist. Then snipped some lengths of cording. Using a simple loop knot, I attached them and then knotted the various strings together. Et voila! So simple and a perfect addition to my collection!

Have you been loading up your wrists with various friendship and other styles bracelets this summer??? I sure have and love it!!!

  1. I haven't worn piles of friendship bracelets this summer, but the more I see them, the more I'm considering it! They're a great way to add a little color to an outfit. And I love your DIY version.

    I'm hosting a giveaway for a pair of Jeffrey Campbell oxfords. If you have a minute, swing by and enter!
