Easy Woven Wrap Bracelet

All right, if you read here regularly, then you probably remember the  woven wrap bracelet from earlier this month.  I promised to make a little easier tutorial.  Both versions turned out great, but if you are a beginner this is an easier one to start with.  What do you think?

Woven Wrap BraceletWhat you will need:

  • Hemp or cotton twine (I used cotton this time) – you will need 6 strands that are 28-30 inches long.
  • A ring connector
  • Glue-on end caps, a clasp, and jewelry glue

Take three of your strands, and double them so that there is a loop at the mid-way point.  You will loop it through the ring connector to make a lark’s head knot.  If you’re not sure how to do this, I use them in most of my woven bracelets.  You can check out this tutorial to see what I mean.

Make a knot on each side.  You’ll have 6 strands coming off that are approximately 13-14 inches long.

Now, braid each side.  You can make a 6-strand braid if you want, but to keep things simple I just make a regular braid with 2 cords in each strand.

When you get to the end, trim your ends off evenly, add a little bit of jewelry glue to your end cap, and glue it on to secure your braid.  Twist the end caps around to fully coat your twine.  Do the same thing on each side – you may want to check the length against your wrist before finishing off the ends.

Now, just add a clasp to your bracelet and it’s ready to wear!

Perfect for the warm weather coming!  What are you wearing this spring?

  12. Amanda says:

    Ummm…this may sound really stupid, and I am probably missing something really obvious, but when I make this using your suggested lengths, my bracelet closure is on the top of my wrist right next to the silver ring. What the heck am I doing wrong?

    Love, love, love…cute and perfect for spring and summer. I can’t wait to get some colorful cotton or hemp and make my own!!!!

    Very easy tutorial! Thank you very much for all the pics:) Cant wait to make several for birthday and holiday gifts:)

  15. This might be a stupid question, but…when you put this on, it should wrap around the wrist several times and then clasp, right?

  16. Becky says:

    Adrianne,
    Where do I find the ring connector you use in this tutorial? Or any other similar items like that?

  17. Love the bracelet! What size end caps did you use?
