Photo Tutorial: Macrame Bracelet

Hey everyone! Here's another DIY but this time is about macrame bracelets. This type of bracelet is easier than the double bracelet :) There are many ways to make a macrame bracelet, but I will show you the easy one. At the end of the post, you'll see the other styles. 

Materials: diagonal cutter plier, wood beads and two pieces of macrame thread (available in different colors); one of 4' and the other one of 5'.

Step 1: fold the two pieces of thread in half, make a knot. Make sure the shorter thread (4') it's the one on the middle. Now you will have four threads; two of 2' and two of 2'6". Remember: the size of the threads depends on your wrist.
Step 2: make a letter "P" backwards, using one end of the 2'6" thread.
Step 3: start to 'knit' as shown on the photo. You can click on the photo so you can see the direction of the threads.
Step 4: repeat step 3 until the bracelet fits your wrist. It will look like a curvy braid.
Step 5: finish your bracelet with a wood bead that fits on the hole shown on step 1 (the one on top of the knot). Insert the wood bead through both of the 2' threads. Repeat step 3 two time to secure the wood bead.
Step 6: make a knot and your bracelet is ready!

I hope you like it!! Here are some other macrame bracelet styles...
For this one, you just have to follow the steps on the tutorial. The only difference as you can see, is adding some wood beads in the middle of the bracelet.
For this one, the same; just follow the steps on the tutorial. But, there are two new things here... adding wood beads in the middle of the bracelet and making a straight 'braid' between each bead. To make it straight instead of curvy, you'll need to alternate the step 3 starting with a normal "P". So... you'll have to repeat step 3 and then the alternate step, then again the step 3 until you insert another bead.
This one is straight, not curvy as you can see. As I mentioned, you'll need to do step 3 and then the alternate step. Repeat both steps until you finish, without forgetting about adding some wood beads.

Any question or suggestion? I'm just a click away :) Comment below or email me ;)
