Project 2: Braided Bracelet

Yes, I went to an old standby for a project. This is one that I sell in my shop but I made it a little differently.

The details of how to make this braid can be found here - Tying it All Together does an AMAZING job explaining this to newbies. It's a project that I learned to do years ago when I would make hemp necklaces and bracelets.

I used a candle to melt together the smaller pieces of colored paracord. You'd be wise to melt it over the candle slowly so that you don't catch it on fire or char it. 

Supplies Used:
Curved Side-release Plastic Clasp
Wood Burning Tool (used to finish end of braid)
Tealight Candle
