out there. Instantly channel summer’s festival trend by stacking these with
your other string bracelets and gold bangles. Make a pile, and then divvy them

It’s a veritable arm party over here. Our BFF Tatiana F. of
What you’ll need:
Embroidery floss in bright colors
Linked chains about 4” long (can be found at craft
stores—use pliers to separate the links if necessary)
What you’ll do:
Step 1: Gather six strands of embroidery floss (each should
be about 12 inches long) and knot the ends together on one side. Begin to braid
about 3 inches of the length and knot all the strings at the end of the braid,
leaving a long tail.
Step 2: Divide the strands into two sections, so three
strands are in each, then thread the first section through the embroidery
needle and begin weaving through two lengths of chain, whipstitching in one
direction. The embroidery floss should connect both lengths of chain.
Step 3: Once you have woven the floss in one direction as
shown in the images above, take the other section of floss and begin to weave
in the opposite direction creating criss-crosses.
Step 4: After having completed the criss-cross design
between the two chains, knot the end and braid the rest of the tail like the
first step. Voilà! You’ve
not got a beautiful and colorful bracelet that’ll rock your wrist this summer.
