In this post, I learnt how to make a beaded stretch bracelet. I will be wearing this bracelet most of the time to feel close to home. The three colours I chose for my bracelet represent my country’s national flag.
- Stretch cord
- Glass beads
- Tape measure
I measured my wrist and cut a stretch cord a few inches longer than my wrist.
I placed tape at one end of my stretch cord to prevent the beads from falling when I put them on it.
I put the glass beads on the stretch cord one after the other until I had the right length. I put the colours according to the order of my national flag- red, yellow, green.
I removed the tape at the end of the stretch cord. I then tied the cord together to prevent the beads from falling off.
I cut off the remaining stretch cord and slid the knot into the closest bead hole to prevent it from showing.
Thus far, my beaded bracelet is done. I am looking forward to learning another type.
- They are easy to make.
- Less costly as it requires few of the beads.
- Not time-consuming.
- It can easily tear or loosen because of the stretch cord.
