Sleek, stylish, simple! This sweet bracelet is quick and easy to make.

To make a bracelet you'll need:
  • Two 7.5-8 inch pieces of Bungee Cord (we used Pink/Orange)
  • Two complete Spring Closures
  • Clear-drying craft glue
  • Jeweler's pliers (available in the jewelry section of your favorite craft shop)
  • Scissors
  1. Fold the two pieces of Bungee in half and follow the illustrations below for making the Reef Knot:

  2. Insert each of the 4 ends into the spring closures. Follow closure instructions; using jeweler's pliers to secure. Apply clear-drying craft glue to finish.
That's it! Really-really ;-) This bracelet is so simple, you can whip up a bunch of these in such a short amount of time. We remade this project using 6mm Bonnie Braid with a Hook Closure. Just follow the directions above to complete. The only additional step is that the ends were twisted before gluing into the closure for an added effect.
