New Twist On An Old Classic;;

Project DIY: A New Twist on Friendship Bracelets

 (idea sourced from Honestly WTF)

Faux-leather cord
Colorful linen or cotton cords
1 strand of gems
Step 1. Gather materials. Cut the cords to 12" long. Cut the strand of gems to 6".

Step 2. Fold the leather cord in half. Starting half an inch down the folded leather cords, wind one of the cotton strings around the cords creating a loop.

Step 3. Place the strand of gems on top of the two leather cords and wrap the cotton cord around the gems and leather cords tightly. Continue wrapping your cord all the way around.

Step 4. Repeat with your second cotton cord. Tie the loose ends together in a double knot and cut off the remaining string.
Tip: Start your second cord backwards for a crisscross pattern, or leave the second cord out for a simpler style of bracelet.
