Neon Wapped Bracelet, DIY

Neon Wrapped Bracelet.
This would also look good Red, White and Blue for July 4th

Things you need.

  1. Neon rope ~Lowes
  2. Neon cord Walmart
  3. Glue
  4. Scissors

 Cut your cord 16 inches long and fold in half.
 Tie a knot in each end, leaving a loop at one end.
Cut a piece of  pink neon rope about 4 feet.
 I always cut too much. 
(Getting to the end and not having enough rope in not my idea of fun:)

Take your neon rope and tie a slip knot on one end.

 Pull tight

 then start weaving the rope like the picture above.

 Tie the end off, cut off excess rope.
 and place a drop of glue on each knot.

 Mix up your colors however you feel.
Fun weekend project.
Happy Friday.

 and we thought it would be super easy to make.

Things you need.

  1. A scarf (Dimensions my scarf  is  6 feet by 3 feet)
  2. Sewing machine
  3. Safety pins 
  4. Pencil or chalk

 measure  from under your arm almost to your shoulder.

 Fold your scarf in half

 Use a piece of clothing that you like the way it fits 
and trace a line from under the arm to the bottom hem.

 with your safety pins, pin where your measurements are.
Try it on. 
Make adjustments if necessary.

If it fits....
sew where the red lines are. A small half inch at the top.
