I’m Nuts About This Hex Nut Bracelet!
Here’s another great DIY find I stumbled across on ModCloth’s blog (originally posted on Honestly…WTF?).
What you’ll need:
3 strands of twine (I’ve also done this in leather and embroidery floss)
18 hex nuts (small or medium work best, but it can be done with large one’s as well, you’ll just need more twine)
Gather the twine, line up the ends, and tie a knot leaving roughly 2 inches at the end
Start braiding until you have about an inch done and begin braiding in the nuts
Take the far left strand, thread a nut onto it, and push it against the base of the braid and cross the twine over
Repeat with the far right strand, keeping your thumb at the base of the braid
Continue those steps until you’ve threaded all the nuts
Once all the nuts are on, braid another nut-free inch of twine, knot it leaving another 2ish inches at the end, and you’re good to go!
*These directions make a bracelet that should wrap around your wrist 2-3 times. If you want a shorter one, just adjust the length of the twine!
For directions accompanied by pictures go to Honestly…WTF?
Here are my versions of this project:
Have fun with this! Experiment with different types of string, twine, leather, etc. and play around with different sized hex nuts in different colors!
