This simple bracelet design shows you how to use elastic cord to make a really easy bracelet. You can create a bracelet like this using any manner of beads strung in any pattern, so experiment and have fun!

To buy all the materials we have used here click the 'materials' tab and you can add everything to your basket in one go.

You Will Need:
8mm beads
6mm beads
0.5mm elastic

Other Items (not included on 'Materials' tab as you may already have them)
Glue or clear nail varnish
elastic bracelet

Step 1

Cut a piece of elastic approx. 30cm long. Thread on your beads. You may want to tie a knot in one end of attach it to a surface using sticky tape so the beads don't come off the end as you are threading.

Step 2

Continue threading until your bracelet reaches your desired length, a comfortable fit around your wrist. I threaded 1 8mm bead followed by 1 6mm bead an continued in this pattern until my bracelet was long enough.

Step 3

Now you need to tie a knot. An overhand knot is all you need but it helps to place the end through the loop twice to give a tighter knot. See diagram.

Step 4

Complete the knot by looping over and under once, this should tighten the knot and create a double knot. Pull tight but be sure not to snap the elastic.

Step 5

For extra security add a dab of glue or clear nail varnish on to the knot.

Step 6

Cut off the excess elastic to complete your bracelet.
