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!!!

DIY LEGO Key Holder

We’re liking this DIY LEGO key holder that was created with LEGO part number 3176. The maker of this found the piece digging through their son’s LEGO box and whipped this handy little item up. Hit up ebay or your local LEGO store to find this piece and give this a whirl! We might give this a go, too. Take a detailed look after the jump.


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:
