Easy Bracelet Tutorial

When I was at my mom and dad's over Easter, I couldn't help but bring a couple of craft supplies to do a small project. I ended up grabbing some beads and cord. Using this pin as inspiration I thought these bracelets would be a cinch to whip up.

 The braiding cord (that's what the package called it. I had wanted to use hemp but that stuff was too pricey for El Cheapo over here!) had three different colors in the package so I made a couple of brown, black, and natural. 
I think they are uber cute and could be worn with a formal or casual outfit.

Want to make your own? Here's a quick How to:

It's as simple as putting on beads and tieing a knot, I found the size that fit me best was four sections (pic four). I didn't measure the sections, just eyeballed it. At the end throw on one single bead tie another knot (pic five) and that will go through the starting loop as your clasp. Isn't that easy and quick? 
These would make great little gifts, Mothers Day is coming up!

With this tutorial and the one I shared on Tuesday you think I would have done a series like 'Jewelery week' or something. Ha.
