MY DIY | Fishtail Braid Bracelet


During my #GuyDIY week, one of my male models, Greg, sported a wrist of bracelets and now you can get the look. With the right color choice, it can work on a guy or girl, and stack ’em for a bold look. 
Tape, superglue, scissors, cord, two colors of string, lobster clasp, jumprings, end caps
How To: 
1. Put a little super glue in the end cap
2. Next fold a 1ft of the cord in half and put in the end cap. Then add the ends of each piece of string (one yard each) in the the cap. 
3. Let dry for 5 mins. 
4. Tape down your bracelet with the cord in the middle and the color string on each side. 
5. Next, take the right outside string and weave over the right cord and under the left. 
6. Then, take the left outside string and weave over the left cord and under the right. 
7. Repeat, starting on the right side again, and then the left side. 
8. Continue, weaving right to left. 
9. Trim the ends, and superglue into another end cap.
10. Add jumprings and lobster clasp.

  8. My daughter (9 yrs) loves making “bracelets” out of little pieces of string that she has a bag full of. She just braids them up and gives them away. I think this project is great and would be a nice next step for her to actually make something more sustainable and real. I’m going out today to buy her the supplies. Great job!

    Thanks so much!

  9. Nice!!!
