DIY TUTORIAL: FISHYTAIL BRACELET
Absolutely! I found a video on youtube that explains how to do it already. But it’s like 20 minutes long! I’m going to be honest I didn’t watch the whole thing since I already know how to do this… So I hope it is easy to follow and understand. I might try making a shorter video myself one day, I just need to find a way to keep my camera above me while I am working.
Super easy pattern! I thought it looked like a feather, so I used peacock colors. Hope y’all like it! :-)
This pattern it getting more an more popular, I keep seeing it pop up all over the place.
Going to try this with embroidery floss and see how it looks as a micro bracelet

Here is an interesting video I found on how to make plastic or paper bracelets. Actually, the video itself is not THAT interesting… it’s actually quite slow, but luckily it is easy to understand and you don’t have to really watch the whole thing to understand how it works… Wonder if this would work with lanyard…
For those of you who like to end your bracelets in a new way other than tying loops and knots, beads or buttons. Great way to add extender chains if your design isn’t long enough or you run out of strings. You can add on little charms too!
I got a couple messages about how I take pictures of my bracelets. So I thought I’d share with everyone how I made my mini photo studio. It is really simple and effective.
Here is what you’ll need:
- Frosted plastic file box
- Two light sources
- Construction paper or poster board
See my set up here:
The reason I used a frosted box is so that the light is diffused and looks softer as you can see. You can find many different colors and patterns of paper at your local craft stores. Also, if your camera has a macro setting, use it! It helps make your photos look crystal clear when you take shots close up. So go experiment and see how great your photos turn out. Here are a few of mine using this method:
