Inspiring handcrafted how-to’s for your home, life and well being. Our Made By Hand series features distinct DIYs made with a little love and a lot of creative spirit.
This past weekend we packed our mocs and headed south to Austin, Texas for CAMP!
We kicked off this fun-filled weekend adventure on Friday night with two boho inspired friendship bracelet DIYs created by Johnna from Fox Meets Bear. Check out Johnna’s step-by-step instructions below and share with us which bracelet you’ll be making in the comments!
- Eight Brass Beads
- Roll of 24mm copper
- Five strands of Suede (desired length 18″)
- Washi Tape
- Wire Cutter
Step 1 | Cut one end of the suede to make it easier for the beads to be strung on. Trim diagonally.
Step 2 | String on brass beads. Feel free to explore here. You can put them all on one strand of suede or split them up on each of the five strands!
Step 3 | Cut three-five sections from roll of copper. Desired length about two-three inches each.
Step 4 |Wrap copper tightly around suede. Feel free to explore with this too! They can be close together, far apart, spread out on all five strands of suede or covered on one single piece!
Step 5 | Gather the ends of the five strands of suede and leave about two inches of room on the end for tying. Wrap entire section with copper.
Step 6 | Wrap on wrist. Find a friend to help tie into a double knot. Enjoy the suede, brass, and copper combination!
