DIY is the New Black

I'm so excited to share with you this big news! I put together a DIY bracelet tutorial for a page in the September issue of Glamour magazine, promoting Netflix's original series, Orange is the New Black. The prisoners on the show get pretty crafty themselves, but I prefer making jewelry over toothbrush shanks.

Here's the iPad version of the page and project, and a snap from my Instagram of the print copy. Be sure to share (tag me @thanksimadeit) if you read Glamour and spot the DIY project yourself!

    Erin,

    I love this project! My bracelets came out great! One question, what do you do with the knots at the end? That's the only part that looks a little iffy...

    Thanks!

    1. Hi! I'm glad you like it! I'm not sure what exactly you mean about what to do with the knots. I tied a knot first, then added a jump ring through the knot and around the cords. If you're concerned with them coming undone, a drop of glue goes a long way for keeping things secure. Another option is to gently pass a lighter near the cords (as long as what you're using is nylon-based and melts) to melt and fuse the cords together, like you would to melt the ends of the cord to keep from unraveling. Hope this helps!
