A while ago I found this amazing DIY on HonestlyWTF and I decided to try it out myself. It was my intention to make a bracelet with different sizes of hex nuts but that made it look sloppy, so I made them both with only small hex nuts. I still have some hex nuts left, so maybe I'll try to make a necklace with the hex nuts in different sizes.
Here is what you need:
- 3 strands of twine (I only wanted to use leather -which was a little more difficult to find- but you can also use cotton twine etc.)
- 18 small brass hex nuts in the colour you prefer
Hold the 3 strands together and make a knot about 3 centimeters from the top, then start braiding. After 3 centimeter or more -depending on the total length you prefer- you start adding the hex nuts to the braiding process. Pull the left strand through a hex nut and turn it over the strand in the middle, then do the same with the right strand and repeat this with the 16 other hex nuts. When you're finished with adding the hex nuts you braid what's left of the strands until about 3 centimers from te bottom and make a knot.
E voilà braided hex nut bracelets!
