With the holidays in sight, it’s time to start crafting fancy items! 
I always love to make my own accesories and outfits for christmas and new years eve, remember my dress last year? Well this year I am starting a bit earlier, so I’ve already been pretty busy with new festive tutorials! And not just accessories, also home decor items!
Today will be the first holiday tutorial: a fancy stretchy pearl bow bracelet, that only takes minutes to make! It’s the perfect bracelet to wear during christmas and new years eve. And of course any special occasion after that :)
Here’s how:
DIY Supplies:
Ribbon | Pearls/Beads | Stretchy Cord | Decorative Split Pin
1. Measure your wrist and cut the stretchy cord in the size of your wrist + a few extra cm, so it’s easy to tie it later.
2. String the beads onto the cord until you can fold it over your wrist. Make sure that the beads are covering all parts and there’s still enough stretch to take it off.
3. Tie a knot into the cord. 
4. Cut the excessive cord of.

      What is a split pin? Where do you find decorative split pins?

        Hi! To quote google: “A split pin is a metal cotter pin with two arms passed through a hole, held in place by the springing apart of the arms.’
        And where to buy them depends on where you live. Stationary and craft stores usually have them in a variety of sizes and colours.
