Thanks to the lovely and oh-so-addicting pinterest.com, my sister-in-laws Saige and Kendra got their craft on while we were all together for Thanksgiving. Having caught a nasty cold that should have been considered it’s own category of sickness, I sat down at the table after the supplies were ready to go and simply popped a few beads in, tied a few knots and voila! We had a pile of bracelets that are super cute, way fast to create and inspired by this DIY necklace idea that found its way to pinterest.
Yes, it’s made by using a men’s necktie. Yes, it’s so cute (and lightweight). And yes….it’s even better as a bracelet. I have to come right out and say it. Bracelets are an easy accessory to give – they just can go with so many more outfits than a necklace might. All you have to do to adapt this necklace tutorial is:
- use half the length of the necktie.
- use only 3-4 beads and knots.
- that’s all.
Even in my coughing, sniffling state I could still tie the thing around my wrist by myself (requires a little acrobatic creativity but it can be done). Four fabulous gifts checked off Kendra’s list – all in one evening! So whether you choose to create a necklace or a bracelet, you’ll end up with something fun, simple and oh so chic!
