DIY-Braided-Cuff-Bracelet-Final

Today’s DIY is inspired by a gorgeous bracelet that I spotted by Aurelie Bidermann.  This one is so easy to make but such a pretty project…  I love how it turned out!

P.S.  Check out my other Aurelie Bidermann DIY… love this lace cuff, too!

Start by cutting 30 pieces of embroidery floss, each about 24-30″ long.

Form three piles of ten strands of embroidery floss.  Take a separate piece of floss, and tie a knot.  Wrap the floss around the top of the braid a few times, form a loop, and tie a knot.

Cut the top of your braid off.  Slowly start braiding a nice fat, flat braid.  Fan it out as you go to make it nice and thick!

Close off the braid by tying a knot and wrapping a piece of embroidery floss around the end of the braid 5-6 times.  End it by forming a loop and wrapping the end through to tie a knot.

Apply glue to your bracelet and firmly press the braid down… carefully pressing and fanning the braid out as you work.
