What you'll need:
• 4 Strands of thread each 5ft long, each in a different color
• Tape or safety pin to hold your bracelet in place while you braid it
Step 1: Line up your 4 strands and fold them in half. Tie a knot about half an inch from the fold
Step 2: Tape or pin the knot to a flat surface and spread out each strand so that no color is touching the one next to it
Step 3: Take the first strand that is on your far left and make a knot with the strand next to it on its right, in my case it would be the neon green strand, working from my left to right I would tie a knot around the blue, next the orange, lastly the purple. Then I would move to the other side and starting from my right to left I would tie the green strand around the blue, next the yellow, and lastly the purple. At this point the two green strands should be in the middle of the bracelet. I would then tie those two together and repeat the process with the other colors.
Step 4: Continue the process through all of the colors. Stop braiding when you've reached a length that fits your wirst.
The Neon Necklace
The Neon Necklace
What You'll Need:
Rhinestone necklace, paint brush, and neon nail polish
Once you've collected all your items all you'll have to do is paint the stones in your necklace your favorite neon color. I reccomend keeping your necklace on the paper card that you purchased it on so you don't get paint on your table or work surface. Other than that its a really simple and fast project to do to get the look!
