DIY Thread Wrapped Bracelets


I recently made a trip to Hobby Lobby, my newest obsession since my first visit to one in Chicago. They had the perfect sized rope trim for thread-wrapped bracelets. I decided to add jump rings for a more updated look. I love the way they turned out! They’re perfect for stacking, or on their own.


You’ll need:

– Rope Trim
– Embroidery thread
– 9mm Jump Rings
– Jump rings and fasteners
– Glue
– Pliers
– Scissors
– End Caps (similar)

Thread-Wrapped-Bracelet1. Start by cutting a 6″ piece of trim, or long enough to wrap around your wrist. Tape one end of embroidery thread to one end of the trim. Wrap the embroidery thread around the rope trim.

DIY Spike Hair Ties


I had some leftover spikes from this tutorial, so I decided to add a bit of edge to some hair ties. Hopefully this makes them harder to lose!


You will need:

– Gold and Silver Spikes
– Matching Jump Rings
– Hair Ties
– Pliers

Spike-Hair-Ties-21. Start by opening a jump ring and hooking on a spike.

Spike-Hair-Ties-32. Stretch the hair tie so it gets thinner and easier to fit inside the jump ring. Attach the jump ring to the hair tie and close the jump ring.

Spike-Hair-Ties-43. Continue adding spike to your hair tie. I added 12 in total.

Spike-Hair-Ties-54. Repeat with the silver spikes, and you’re done! Bonus: they look cool around your wrist!
