Step 1: Getting Your String Ready
We’ll start with the most important object in this DIY, so much so it’s in the name: the string! But no worries, no need to know string theory to get through this set of steps. Alright, we hear ya, no more dad jokes for the rest of the article (maybe).
1.Choose 3 Colors
Coming out strong and fun for this project; you get to pick out 3 colors! Out of the 3, 2 of them will be visible and 1 of them is going to be what we’ll refer to as the “core string” because it is the string that’s holding everything together.
Thank you for all your hard work, core string. You’re the MVS (Most Valuable String).
2. Measure & Cut
Time to grab those scissors and cut all 3 strings colors at least 12 in. This also depends on how long you’d like your bracelet to be! It’s also completely okay to eyeball it; it’s safer to cut off too much string than too little. Most likely, you’ll have some leftover string from the core string, and that’s a-okay!
3. Knot it Up
Once your string is cut, gather the string together. Pinch your fingers a few inches away from the ends of the string, like in the picture directly below, and tie a knot. When your DNA string bracelet easy steps are all done, this will be how you tie your bracelet onto your wrist!
4. Tape it Down
Bring your prepared string to a hard surface, such as the table we’re using in this string bracelet easy DIY, and above the knot tape down the core string, which should be positioned in the middle.
Fastening your string to a hard surface will help your project go smoothly. And by the time you get these steps down, you’ll be moving so fast that you’ll be relieved the string is properly taped down!
Step 2: Begin Creating DNA String Bracelet Easy-Peasy
Alright, now we’re getting down to it; get those fingers ready for some crafting! We promise once you learn these simple moves in Step 2, you’ll be a pro in literally no time. You got this!
Take the string on the left and drape half of it over the core string. It will sort of look like the number 4, like the picture below!
2. Right String
Let’s not forget about our little string on the right now. Take the string on the right and drape it over the left string that is now on the right side. Don’t worry; here’s a picture below to follow visually!
3. Guide the Right String Under the Core String
Take the end of the right string and guide it underneath the taped-down core string. During this DNA bracelet string easy DIY at times, it’s easier to pinch the middle string and hold it up just a hair as you slide the right string underneath.
4. Pull the Ends of the String
Now, you may grab both ends of the strings and pull them gently. As you start to do so, you’ll notice that the strings are moving up along the taped-down string.
Once you pull all the way, it will reach the top, and then it’s time to do these steps over again!
5. Switch the Strings
After doing this a few times, you’ll notice that the strings begin to twist. Once you see this, you may actually have the strings switch sides!
You can do this by guiding one of the strings underneath the core string and then straightening them out. After they’ve switched, you can continue to do the same steps until it’s time for them to switch again!
Step 3: Finishing Your DNA String Bracelet Easy & Simple
We’re almost done; Whoop whoop! Let’s finish strong and see your bracelet string easy DIY come to life!
1.Measure Your Bracelet to Your Wrist
After you’ve done the repetitive motions and you notice that your bracelet is getting around the length you’d like it to be, take the tape off of your string and do a little measure test.
An important reminder, you’ll want to make sure you leave enough room at the end of your bracelet to knot it off and have string left on the ends for tying!
If your bracelet appears to be long enough, huzzah! Time to move on to the next steps. If not, no worries! Simply tape your string again and keep on trucking.
2. Knotting Off the End
If you’ve decided your bracelet is long enough, it’s time to knot that bad boy off! As another friendly reminder, please make sure you have enough string on the ends of your bracelet to tie them together securely to the wrist you’re making it for.
3. Cutt Off the Extra String
While making sure you have enough string to tie your ends together, you can cut off any string that’s too long. Your core string will most likely have quite a bit left over.
And just like that, presto, you’ve just finished your very own DNA string bracelet easy-breezy!
