Contrary to what you may think, making your own accessories doesn’t have to be rocket science. This is especially true for making jewelry; you only need basic crafting skills to get going. It all comes down to knowing where to start.
This easy DIY jewelry knotted rope bracelet is the perfect example. In just four steps, you can transform ordinary rope into stylish arm candy. This is as easy as it gets, ladies!
- Metallic spray paint
- Scrap paper, cardboard, old newspaper, or magazines
1. Cut a strand of rope measuring at least 1 1/2 times your wrist.
Tip: Simply wrap the rope around your wrist 1 1/2 times and cut. Want to give yourself some extra room to work with? Wrap it around twice before cutting.
2. Bring the ends together and tie a loose knot. Slip the rope onto your wrist to ensure that you can take it on and off. Carefully tighten the knot.
3. Trim away the excess rope.
4. Head outside and place the rope on scrap paper. Apply a few layers of spray paint you achieve the look desired. Leave to dry.
Flip the bracelet over and repeat on the other side. Don’t forget to apply paint along the sides of the bracelet, too.
The picture above was taken after just one layer of paint. The finished product has a total of three layers; the saturated, sparkly look is what I was going for.
Once dry, your new bracelet is ready to rock n’ roll. How easy was that?
If metallic gold isn’t your thing, use a spray paint in a different color or finish. There are so many options at hardware and craft stores.
