DIY Hex Bracelets

Hex bracelets, these babies seem to be all the DIY blogosphere rage; they also look extremely simple to make, so I decided to try my hand (no pun intended) at a few too.

Minor pre-reqs; materials, and the ability to braid.

hexagon Nuts (can be picked up at a local hardware store)
twine rope

Begin by cutting 3 pieces of rope 16 inches long, tie the ends together, like so.

Braid 24

Begin to braid in the hex nuts

  1. i keep seeing these around.. they look so cool. good to know how easy they are. but.. when i've tried to buy supplies at hardware stores before (for example, the nails for my 'create' jewelry board), the only options were huge quantities.. obviously i don't need 500 nails, or even 100. is it the same with the hex nuts?

  2. Thanks for commenting Kara! I was able to buy the hex nuts separately for 11 cents each at ace hardware in hoboken, but I'm assuming home depot would be the same.
