2. Wrap the thread around multiple times.

diymexicanbracelets_step23. Change color by tying a new thread to the old one with a double knot, then cutting off the old thread.

4. Wrap the second color around, covering up the end of the old color and the end of the new color.

5. Continue all the way around, until you reach the beginning of your wrapping.

6. Add a third contrasting color wrapped around your base colors for texture.

7. When done, tie your final thread to the tail of the thread you tied on in the beginning, and snip all extra ends.

Plus you can hand-sew on some crystals, or even thread on some beads as you wrap for a totally different look.

      Thanks, Lilith! Yes, they would work for anyone, I think…they just take awhile to make, so you definitely want to have a TV marathon on in front of you to pass the time! ;-)

    These kits look fun. I like the idea of making the book look like a magazine.
