so lately I have really been feeling the Indian beaded bracelet look. Perfect for summer. Free spirited. Just plain cool and they really never go out of style. A classic.





What is not so cool is how time consuming they seem to be. Granted I have never tried to make one, they just seem to be time consuming.

Plus I don't have any of the supplies required to make them.

So here is what I believe to be a clever way to make a faux Indian beaded bracelet.



   I picked up a pack of leather snap bracelets from Hobby Lobby... three for $2.99. These were originally intended for leather etching/carving but were just perfect for this DIY. I had the puff paint on hand (.99 cents each). My tips/pointers are to WORK SLOWLY... and always shake the paint into the tip of the puff paint bottle before applying. This will help you to avoid blowouts. Also, I recommend taking a break half way through the bracelet and put your puff paint in the fridge for a few minutes. If the paint becomes to warm it will not be as 'puffy'.
   I have a few more undecorated ones.... think I will try out a more complicated design but this easy chevron design is a good starting place.
  Ok nighty night... see you in the morning/evening/noon.... when ever you stop by.
