So one of my first pins on Pinterest was some of those hex nut crafts where you braid the hex nuts into the fabric and then wear it as a bracelet or a necklace. On a random trip to OSH I bought some hex nuts but never got around to making it back then, so I decided to finish it this afternoon!
I was searching for a tutorial online because braiding the hex nuts into a bracelet proved harder than I though it'd be, but I couldn't find any so I made my own variation of the craft that's MUCH easier.
Here's the supplies you'll need:
- Hex nuts (Quantity depends on what you want to make. I made a bracelet and used 14.)
- Ribbon or yarn - a LOT of it. I used about 10 feet of yarn cut up into three sections.
Step 2: Tie a knot connecting the three strands of ribbon or yarn. I had to tie my yarn 2-3 times, putting each knot over the last, to make sure that the hex nut wouldn't slide over it and my ribbon only once.
Step 3: Slide on a hex nut.
Step 4: Tie 2-3 knots on top of each other for yarn or only once for ribbon to hold hex nut in place.
Step 5: Repeat this step until all of your hex nuts are tied securely onto the ribbon or yarn.
Step 6: Tie ends together to make bracelet (or necklace).
And you're finished!
Hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial! It's a lot easier than the braided hex nut crafts but still gives the same effect.
