Peace-Out

Standard

My daughter and niece have been after me to make some bracelets.  So this is my first try at a simple bracelet.  Being a 70’s girl who drives a VW Bug, the peace signs had me at “Hello”.

Materials:

wooden peace signs ($3.99 at Hobby Lobby with of course a 40% off coupon)

black waxed “string” (I’ll look up the real name and size on my next trip)

assorted beads that I had on hand (even though my pantry is lacking supplies, my craft room is filled to the top  LOL)

peace sign and waxed string

You have to use waxed string because the hole is too small for a needle. I used 18″ of waxed string.

knotting off

thread the end of the knotting thread through a needle and run it back through the knots to tie it off. Then trim and repeat with the other side.
