Intro: Bicycle Tire Bracelet
Did your bike tire pop? just found one at the dump? here is an instructable on how you can use that tire and make a "green" (black) bracelet.
Step 1: Tire
Obtain a bicycle tire somehow, steal our neighbors (don't recommend this) or find one.
Step 2: Strip the Tire.
take the tire off the axle and take out the inner tubing.
Step 3: Cut the Tubing Into a Strip
cut off the air lever thing and make a slit all the way down from that point until you have one loooonng strip.
Step 4: Marking
measure your wrist on the rubber and make a mark. add about 2 inches and cut there.
Step 5: Rectangle
to make a god rectangle, cut off and make the top and bottom straight lines as shown.
Step 6: More Strips
make 3 more strips. mark 3 even lines. i made my strip 3 inches across so i have a mark at each inch.
Step 7: Clamp
make 3 holes using the knife as shown in pics, then push something (bolt) through the holes to hold them 3 together. once held together, clamp or have someone hold that end. when clamped, begin to braid the ends really(!) tightly.
Step 8: More
braid until almost no tube is left. then make another hole.
Step 9: String
push a 1foot piece of string through the holes opposite from the bolt and tie tight. then wrap the string around that tube 3 times and tie again.
Step 10: Tie Again
go through the layers on the other side and wrap 3 times again. this time when done wrapping, tie to the other side to bring both ends together.
