Day 263: Celtic Knot Bracelet

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

As many of you may already know, for Christmas I typically make my gifts instead of buying something to try and save a little money. I think people always look forward to seeing what I make and it makes it more interesting and heartfelt in my opinion! I’ll probably have to grow up eventually and buy real gifts, but I’ll milk this for as long as I can! :mrgreen:

Anyways, one of the gifts I made this year was a celtic knot bracelet! My friend Lauren messaged me on Facebook about this bracelet she found on Pinterest and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to make it! Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any instructions on how to make it! So I just sort of made it up myself! After several failed attempts, I realized I needed something to hold the loops in place because I was losing my spot really easily… so tape on an old book did the trick! I bought the string from this little store in Boone called The Bead Box and I also got some cool beads to tie the ends with! The pictures below are of my first finished product… I hadn’t quite figured out how to do the ends at that point, so it’s a work in progress. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pics of the second one I made, but it worked a little better!

Not exactly like the image I was going off of, but I think it turned out pretty well considering I didn’t have any instructions! Both friends who received these loved them! I had planned on making more, but they used so much string it would have cost too much to make them for everyone! I’ll show you the other gifts I made in the next post.
