Picture of Macrame Bracelet
  Macrame bracelets are easy to make, and lots of fun! If you make this bracelet with hemp thread, it will look more thick. If you use embroidery thread or crochet cotton, it will look fine and thin. Either way, it ends up looking awesome!

Step 2: Measuring

  Pick two colors of thread. The one you want your bracelets main color to be ( I chose red) cut 4 1/2 feet. With your other color measure your wrist with the thread than add 5" to the measurement, than times by two. ( My wrist 6" + 5" = 11" x 2 = 22)

Step 5: Weigh it down

  Hold the short thread ends together ( In my case orange) and tie a over hand knot as close to the ends as you can. Bend the paper clip into a "S" shape and hook it over the knot in the orange thread, then hang something heavy on the end of the paper clip to hold those threads straight while you work on your macrame bracelet. ( I used my scissors to hag of the end)

Step 6: Tape

  Now you should have two short threads weighed down by the scissors with a long thread on each side. Mark the left "red" string with a small piece of tape on the end of the thread.

You didn't show the back of the finished bracelet. It would be nice to see how you close it to wear it.

Since the loop is one side, you can just use the extra thread to tie a not, or even just attach a clip. But maybe if I get to it I will post a picture! :)

Thanks, ya crotchet cotton doesn't look the best, but you can make it out of that if you want.
