DIY: Neon Bracelets

From the Lost ElleSees Files: I started this DIY post about a year ago and never posted it. Oops. The pics weren't the best quality & I can't find all of the pics, as I originally showed around 6 different bracelet ideas. If you'd like to see the rest of the bracelets, let me know, and I'll do a tutorial. In the meantime, enjoy these really easy DIY Neon Bracelets. 

Need to spruce up those summer accesssories? Make these easy neon bracelets--use the colors and designs you like, as these are just a few suggestions. Make one, make more, and stack them. The best part? You probably have most of the tools already. Here's how:

Neon thread
beads (I used silver, and make sure the beads are large enough for the thread)
jump rings

Washer Bracelet

  • Loop thread around the middle of your hand about 6 times.
  • Cut in half. You now have two pieces.
  • Take piece one and half that.
  • Push the looped end through the washer.
  • Take the other end and bring through the loop, making a knot.
  • Take piece two and repeat on the other side of the washer.
  • Tie the ends of each piece together and trim excess.

Looped Bracelet

  • Wrap thread around your palm 6 times.
  • Fold and cut until you have 4 even pieces.
  • Tie one end of 4 pieces together and tape down.
  • Take one piece and thread jump ring through.
  • Tie a knot through it.
  • Move a little further down and add another ring. Knot it.
  • Repeat at least 2 more times on the first piece.
  • Repeat process on remaining 3 pieces of thread.
  • Tie all ends together in knot & trim excess.

Braided Beaded Bracelet

  • Wrap thread around palm 6 times.
  • Fold thread and cut until you have 3 even pieces.
  • Tie pieces in a knot and use tape to secure them to table.
  • Braid 3 pieces around 3 times, and then slide a bead up the middle piece.
  • Braid 3 times again (you can braid once or more, but I randomly chose 3) and then add another bead.
  • Repeat process until finished.
  • Knot pieces and cut off excess.
Finished bracelets with my Swatch Watch & sunnies from the 80s!
