Summer weather inspires a trend for friendship bracelets and necklaces. Warm temperatures and a yarning to spend time outside sparks a desire to channel our inner hippy spirit. Creating friendship bracelets is the perfect solution to a boring summer day or a long car ride.
Honestly WTF’s DIY section is one of my favorite sites for new activities and interesting projects. The website provides all the directions and tools you need to make these friendship bracelet-like necklaces. They are extremely easy to make and a fabulous complement to any summer outfit.
- To make a 2-tone necklace, cut a long piece of rope and wrap two different colors of embroidery thread around its own bobbin.
- Tie a starter knot along with the two colored threads you are using, leaving at least 3 inches of slack, tape down the slack to a flat surface or safety pin it something that will help keep it in place (feeling nostalgic yet?).
- Lay the color that isn’t being used (shown here in purple) in your left hand, along with the rope, and hold them taut.
- Take the active color (shown here in red) in your right hand, pass it over the rope, loop it under and back through the opening. Pull up and to the right to tighten. Repeat the knots until you are ready to switch colors.
- To switch colors put the color you were using (red) in your left hand and the new color (purple) in your right hand. Then repeat the steps!
When you have completed covering the rope or twine compliment the colors by adding a few nuts or washers to the necklace. Undo the starter knot and tie both ends together to complete your project. Mix a few different necklaces together, with contrasting lengths and colors to add some flare to your summer look!
