To Die For DIY: Summer Arm Party
Us Minkettes always love a good arm party, and what better way to get it started than with a little DIY bracelet making! With supplies from M&J Trimming, we created this rhinestone and suede wrap as a festive addition to a stack of bracelets. This project is so simple that you can make a bunch for yourself or your friends too – just follow our tutorial below. And while you’re at it, snap a pic of your masterpiece and how you styled it, then send to us via Twitter at #RMDIY!
1. Take one of the pieces of suede trim and pull the end through the metal closure. Hold it in place by tying a knot around the suede with the cord.
2. Begin wrapping the cord around the suede.
3. Once you have wrapped the cord around a few times, place the rhinestone trim on top of the suede trim. Continue wrapping the cord around, this time wrapping it over the rhinestone trim to hold it in place.
4. Keep wrapping until you reach the end of the trim, or until it is long enough to fit around your wrist. Like you did at the beginning, bring the end of the suede through the other side of the metal closure and wrap the cord around to hold it in place. Tie a knot to keep it secure. Then repeat the process to create the second strand. Now you’re ready to wear your bracelet!
