About a week ago, I decided to try making some of the wrap bracelets with words that I have seen around. People generally get them from street vendors in San Francisco or Mexico, but I wanted to try to make my own. Unlike many things, a tutorial was not a quick Google away. Why? I wondered. They can't be super difficult.
So I set to work with an empty milk jug and a bag of embroidery floss. And matches. For the first few, I tried to melt the ends and bend them over for a nice edge. This was not the way to go! Instead, I figured out that just wrapping all the way to the end worked well.
Below is a picture of the ones I have done so far. Let me tell you, these are addictive little buggers! I love them so much that I made some for my Etsy shop and plan to make many more.
Look, a zombie's arm! Oh no, that's just me. Not really sure why I appear to have a grey tinge...
