Step 1: Cutting
Firstly, cut your shoelace or paracord at your desired length using a pair of scissors. If you want a tight bracelet/band measure it around your wrist. Now cut the wire the same length as the lace using pliers.
Step 2: Threading
This is the most difficult and fiddly part of the task. Lightly pinch open your shoelace/paracord and thread your wire whether it be a pipe cleaner or coat hanger through.
Step 3: Glueing
Finally, squirt some glue into the empty bullet shell and then place it over your bracelet. Repeat this on the other end. Leave your work to dry.
Step 4: Done!
Your band/bracelet is complete! You can now shape/bend it around your wrist or ankle. Wear it around and experiment with other materials!
