DIY: Rope Bracelet

I have been seeing this chunky rope trend around Pinterest and a bunch of blogs lately and totally dig it! I followed a link that was under an outfit post and came to The Ropes Maine webpage. I was totally obsessed until I saw that some of these were selling for $ not so cute anymore right?! Well lucky for us we can totally DIY these. Here's how.

1. What you need: TONS OF ROPE! I got mine from the hardware store and Hobby Lobby, a lighter, and some chunky jump rings and clasps, and bright embroidery thread.
2. Cut the rope and run the lighter over the ends to prevent unraveling.
3. Attach a jump ring to each side and a clasp to one.
4. Fold both ends over and start wrapping some embroidery thread around the center.
5. Continue until smooth.
6. Add an additional color in the center and {not shown} a color towards the end of the clasp on both sides.
7. Finished product!
