DIY: threaded bracelets

When I first posted this woven chains bracelet DIY in my Friday Faves last month, both my mom and friend Amanda wanted to do them.  When Amanda booked her trip here for this past weekend, we figured what better time to try this fun project?

My mom went out and bought 2 types of chains and multiple thread colors for us...

We got to work on our first bracelet each....I chose the black chain with blue, turquoise, magenta, and green thread.

Molly wanted to be in on the action...

Amanda chose the black chain with pink, white and blue thread.
 

The finished products!

(first bracelets)
(second bracelets- solid thread and gold chains, double looped..love!)

Overall, it was a relatively easy (and very cheap!) DIY. My only gripe was when braiding the thread, you def need an extra set of hands to tightly hold the chain.

  2. What fun. I love this and the chains are so inexpensive at the local craft store. I just made a few decanter name plates from chains. (sooo easy)
