Like promised, today we are featuring SZ‘s 1st ever DIY tutorial on her fabulous Helloberry-inspired bracelets! (seen here on Renée and here on SZ)
Supplies: Chain from Michaels, pliers, plastic lace from Michaels, super glue, scissors, tape (optional), ruler (optional)
Step 2: Loop the lace through the chain at both ends and measure the widest part of your hand. Then, fold the lace around with an extra “half” length of lace to spare before cutting it.
Step 4: Then cut a longer piece of lace – depending on the size, it will be _____ times the length of the chain.
small – 12x
medium – 22x
large – 42x
Start with the middle of the long piece placed like so.
Step 9: When you’ve braided two-thirds of the shorter lace, measure it to the widest part of your hand, cut the lace that’s folded over and super glue it together to form a loop. Then keep braiding it till the end to close off the chain.
1) Be careful with the super glue!
2) No need to pull super hard. As long as the lace is in place, you’re good. If you use different degrees of force, the bracelet won’t be as uniformed.
3) Be careful of the lace twisting in the back of the bracelet.
Hope you enjoyed our first ever tutorial.
