DIY: Festival Bracelets

Wahoo, it´s festival season again! Finally, the best time of the year is back and we´re pretty excited about it! Summer, sun, drinks and music, what else could you wish for? To add to your fabulous festival look we´ve got DIY instructions for you to create some stylish festival bracelets.

First, turn on our festival playlist and put on your sunnies…now let´s get started! 

What you need:

  • 0.5mm knotting cord
  • a connector or charm
  • an embroidery needle
  • a pair of scissors

 

Begin with cutting the knotting cord into two 60cm and two 40cm pieces. Fold the 40cm piece in half, pull the loop through the ring, fold it over the ring, and pull the rest of the cord through the loop. Repeat the step on the other side of the ring. These strands will then be anchored and remain in place.

Centre the 4cm cord under the two middle strands. Then fold the right cord over the middle strands and under the left cord. Pull the left cord under the right and middle strands and through the loop on the right side.

 

Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull the right cord under the left and middle strands and through the loop on the left side. Pull tight and repeat the steps. Continue knotting until you’ve got the length you want. 

 

To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the centre of 3-4 knots along the backside.

After sewing up both knotting cords, trim away any excess. Now melt the tips with a lighter to seal it for extra hold. Repeat the same process on the second half of the bracelet.

To make a sliding closure, shape the bracelet into a circle and overlap the middle strands. Tie a knot on both sides. 

 

Feel free to add some personalised decorations to your bracelets, like pearls, tassels etc to make your bracelet even more unique and reflect your style.

Voilà, your festival bracelets are finished!
