DIY: Melted Bracelet

Materials: Plastic cover of any container or a plastic bottle Scissors Match/Candle (not shown in the picture) Rope (not shown in the picture) Step #1. Cut a strip from the plastic cover. Step #2. Melt the plastic strip until desired look is obtained. CAUTION: do this in a well ventilated area. Step #3. Cut the desired length of the melted plastic and cut 2 hole on either end. You could do anything with it by now. You can make it into a pendant, brooch, etc. For me I made it into a bracelet. Also you can use other materials for the bracelet like chain, leather, etc. Step #4. I just tied a rope on either end and just tied a loop on one rope and a knot on the other to make a simple lock for the bracelet. VOILA!!!


I was inspired by Honestly WTF to make my own version of her Hex Nut Bracelet. Well, a super different look. I decided to make a double wrap bracelet and use the nuts like beads. I really, really love the results. I hope you try it yourself and be creative about it. Continue reading for the tutorial. Materials: 1.Nylon Rope (1 1/2 yard) 2.Hex Nuts (I used 6-Sided Nuts) 3.Scissors 4.Yarn (Optional) Just follow the steps above. I hope you guys understand. It’s very simple. 1.Take the nylon rope and bend it in half. Make sure that it will wrap 2 times on your wrist. 2.Take the frayed end of your rope and tie a knot. 3.Then tie another knot where you want to place your hex nuts. 4.Slide in the Hex Nuts and repeat step 3 until you get your desired design. 5. Then use the yarn to embellish your bracelet. (Optional) Voila….your very own Double-Wrap Bracelet DIY source:
