Bonus DIY: Easy Cord and Chain Bracelet

I've been busy this week with a lot of DIY projects. This bracelet is extremely simple and was the product of the same Sunday crafting session that produced my cord bracelet earlier this week. I had to share! 

Tools and Materials:
Nylon cord (1 ft)
Chain
Pliers/cutters to cut or open chain


Cut a piece of chain about 2 1/2 inches long (5 links, in my case). Slide the cord through the last link, and then knot the short end of the cord around the longer end. By knotting one end around the other, the knot should now slide along the cord.



Repeat on the other end of the chain and with the loose cord end. To loosen the bracelet, slide the knots toward the chain; to tighten, slide them together. Trim down the cord, if needed. To keep ends of the cord from fraying or unraveling, gently melt the ends with a lighter.


I told you this was extremely easy! I'm looking forward to mixing this up with some of my "classier" gold bracelets.
