DIY - Friendship bracelets

Thursday, 19 April 2012

Here's some DIY inspiration which seems particularly fitting after last weekends events.  If you go down to the shops today, you won't be able to move for tiny little friendship bracelets. I love them but them seem quite expensive to me, especially when you can make them so easily (and not to mention much cheaper). You'll only need a few supplies and I bet you have most of it already in your craft box. I used a mix of thin leather, cord and chain and finished all ends with a cord end and lobster clasp, each one took about 10mins which is ideal if you want to fill your wrist up quickly or have a lot of friends! I have put some ideas on how to make below, once you start the combinations keep flowing so i'll leave the rest up to you. Happy making. 


*This site looks like it does good cord ends if you need them.
