Foodie Bracelets | DIY

I always thought that a person's favorite food tells a lot about them. My favorite foods probably suggest that I'm a fat teenager (the boyfriend commented that I forgot potato chips). Of course, if you're not so much into wearing your current food cravings around your wrist, you could spell out anything you want, really. But I think, food is great. I like food, you know.

Now, the tutorial is so easy that I didn't bother to take step-by-step pictures. These bracelets are basically the same elastic bracelets that probably all of us made as kids. Just not as colorful. Best thing about this: I made these 4 bracelets in about 20 minutes!

What you need:

BEADS & OTHER:
alphabet beads (I used acrylic beads in gold)
small beads (I used glass beads and chose faceted black ones)
black elastic cord
Step1: Cut the elastic cord to about 5-8 cm longer than your wrist's circumference. Thread glass beads and alphabet beads onto the elastic until they measure the same length as your wrist. If you want the bracelets to fit more loosely, maybe add one or two beads extra.
Step 2: Stretch the bracelet a tiny bit and make a knot to close it permanently. Cut the ends a little bit shorter.

Well, that was easy. Now make some more!
