DIY Woven Bracelet
Enough of the blabber, let's weave.
Here's what you'll need:
- Two different colored yarns
- Cardboard or cereal box
Step 1: Cut your cardboard or cereal box down to 3x9.25 inches. Then mark and cut 1/4 inch along the sides of the cardboard about 1/2 inch deep.
Step 2: Take your base color and wedge it into the first slit. Leave about a 3 to 6 inch tail.
Step 3: Stretch string to the other side in the first slot. Then wrap yarn round the back to the next slit and stretch across.

Step 7: Carefully remove the loops from the cardboard.
|Through the first loop|
|Through second loop|
Step 9: Pull the pink string tight!
Step 10: Tie the pink and black strands into knot. Repeat steps 8 through 10 on the other side.
Step 11: Wrap around wrist and tie all four strands into a knot. The yarn is a bit flexible, so your bracelet should be secure when on, but also capable of easily sliding over your hand.
Step 12: Cut the excess strands off to desired length. I wanted to keep mine a bit longer, but cut it as short as you want!
I really love these bracelets. They're like scarves for your wrists. I'm thinking of using a different kind of yarn next time or adding some beading. These could really be spruced up in all kinds of ways!
And that loom is definitely going on my Christmas list. This was fun.
