DIY: Hex Nut BraceletJuly 3, 2012
In this tutorial i will show you how to make a simple bracelet out of Hex Nuts from your local hardware store. Below are the materials you need to complete this projects:
-1 pack of #2-56 machine Screw Nuts (local hardware store)
-1 pack of #6-32 machine Screw Nuts
-Hemp Cording (From Michaels)
Step 1: Cut to strands of hemp cord (one 19inches one 26 inches). Fold longer strand in half and then combined the end of the shorter stand with the ends of the one you folded in half to make sure they are even. Now grab the opposite end of the strands so you are holding the side thats folded in half. You will have one strand that is longer.
Step 2: Fold the longer strand over and tie a knot. Leave a small loop and the end and then clip the extra short strand you have left.
Step 3: Braid strands about an inch and a half down then begin to slip on each #2-56 hex nut as you braid.
Step 4: Continue to braid and add hex nuts until you have added as many as you would like to cover the width of your wrist.
Step 5: After adding hex nuts braid remaining strands to the very endthen slip on a #6-32 hex nut. Put strand through loop and measure to width of your wrist
Step 6: Where you measure the width of your wrist tie a few knots one over the other so the larger hex nut will not slip off and cut the remaining end.
Step 7: Now you can slide the hex nut through the loop to fasten your bracelet. All done.
