Last night during Happy Hour and Craft Night we made bracelets out of hardware - something that seems all the rage these days! Give it a try, they are easy to make, so you could make them in an array of colors and shapes!
the first bracelet:
Washers or nuts - can be found at any hardware store
Cord or string - we used colored hemp cord from Michaels
Toggle clasp - optional, you could just tie the back if you wanted to
Step 1: Cut 6 lengths of cord approximately 15" long. Take 3 strands in one hand and double it over. Place the looped end through the center of the washer or nut.
Step 2: Pull the other ends of the string around the edge of the hardware and through the loop. Pull the knot tight.
Step 3: Repeat this same process on the opposite side.
Step 4: Slip the 6 ends of the cord into one side of the toggle clasp.
Step 5: Using your wrist as a guide, figure out where you want the toggle to sit on the cord - it should hit the middle of the underside of your wrist when wrapped around. Tie a knot in the cord at that spot, so that the toggle stays in place. Repeat on the other side with the other half of the clasp.
Step 6: Trim off any extra cord with a scissor.
All done! Fasten the clasp, and wear your creation proudly!!
