It’s no secret that most of us love envisaging a new DIY projects and that’s include myself. Thus, one look that I’ve been eyeing for some time is the stackable bracelets and arm candy though I don’t normally buy lot of accessories. This is the reason why I like to make my own bracelets because they are effortless to create and the ones you see in the stores are ridiculously expensive, some have the price tag of up to $50 bucks. If you are anything like me (cheap, picky, always on the go), then this DIY chain bracelet is for you.
So I trolled the internet to search for inspiration and to give you the step- by – step tutorials of one of my favorite arm party revelers, the chain bracelet.
I admit am no connoisseur to perfect this arm candy accessories, but with the help of this tutorial, even the least crafty gal out there can turn into a Martha Stewart wannabe. The good thing about tackling this project, it is super cheap and most of the supplies are available at your local craft store.
Embroidery thread – (available at your local craft store)

DIY Woven Chain Bracelet Tutorial
Grab all your supplies.
Cut 2 sets of 15 strands of embroidery thread, making sure each strand measures 4x the length of the chain bracelet. Knot all the threads at the top, leaving about 2 inches of slack. Sandwich each set between a bobby pin – this will help you easily weave the threads through the links of the bracelet. Lay the threads to the left of the bracelet. Pull the first color (coral) from under the first link and over the top of the left side.
Lay the second color (blue) over the first color (coral). Pull the second color (blue) from under the same link and over the top left again. Repeat the steps, moving onto a new link: put the first color (coral) on top of the second color (blue) and pull it out from under the 2nd link and over the top left. Lay the second color (blue) on top of the first color (peach) and pull it out from under the 2nd link and over the top left again. Because the links of this particular bracelet are large, I wove the threads through twice on each link. If you are using a smaller linked bracelet, you should weave through each link once.
Repeat the steps until you reach the end of the bracelet. Finish it with a knot and trim the ends and you’re ready to rock.
