DIY: Hex Nut Bracelet

This bracelet is super easy and fun to make, not to mention it makes an adorable accessory. All you need is 18 hex nuts, tape, scissors, and some leather cord. Take the cord and wrap it around your wrist about 3 times. Depending on how long you want it to be, add or subtract from the length of the cord and cut it. You will need 3 pieces of cord of this length. take the cord pieces and line them up so the ends are even, then tie a knot 2 inches from the top. Use the tape to secure the knot to the surface you are working on. Start to braid your cord. When you are satisfied by the length of braid begin to add your hex nuts. Starting with the piece of cord farthest to the left, slide on one of your hex nuts. Fold the left cord over the middle cord. Then, slide a hex nut on to the cord farthest to the right. Fold the right cord over theleft cord, which is now the middle cord. Continue braiding in the hex nuts and after you use them all finish the bracelet off with a traditional braid.

Stay Beautiful! ;D
