I Spy: DIY

I've been feeling crafty lately. I don't know what it is, but I am feeling nostalgic for the friendship bracelets of my elementary school days. Short of buying the craft store out of every color embroidery floss, I decided there has to be grown up versions out there somewhere.

Here are a few styles that I'm digging. I plan on making a trip to the hardware store this evening for the essentials. (Husband nearly died of shock when I told him I had DIY's that required s-hooks, hex nuts and ropes, but gladly agreed to accompany me.)

Honestly WTF Hex nut bracelet

Honestly WTF S-hook rope bracelet
And, if all else fails, I'll just buy my weight in embroidery floss. There's just something about brightly colored rope/twine bracelets that scream carefree summers to me.

Those look like so much fun! I've been thinking about friendship bracelets, too, but I feel like we talked about it when we were last at Michael's...so that might be why.

I LOVED making friendship bracelets then, now and forever... and if you ever want to buy out the store in embroidery floss, I shall help you!
