|DIY Inspo - 1 * 2 * 3|
Hello, ladies (and gents?)! It's crafting time! :)
I've been seeing a ton of vamped up friendship bracelets and have been obsessing over the spiked ones. It's a really pretty easy bracelet to make except that friendship bracelet takes a loooooooooooong time to finish.
I brought some of my threads and my daughter's The Friendship Bracelet book to a taping and worked on it while waiting on the set. I probably spent two hours making the thing that day.
A day or two after, I continued making the bracelet and it took me forever to finish it. Not to mention the couple of times I had to untie a bunch of knots because I decided to forego the guide. Big mistake.
The third day was the "spiking" day. Yay! :) Notice that I put a lock hardware instead of the usual tying knots. It's so much easier to put the bracelet on and off with it.
Before any studding began, I had to figure out where I should place the spikes and lined them up near their permanent spots.
Then I used a fork to create a hole for the spike's screw.
Viola! I finally have my own spike friendship bracelet! :)
And here's my little arm party! Can't wait to make some more!
