I realized it’s been a long time since I shared a bracelet tutorial. This chevron style bracelet is fun and easy to braid, and can be turned into so many different styles of handmade jewelry. I used nylon cord from the trimmings section at the craft store for these bracelets. You can also find this in the kids section in multicolored packs. All you need to make these wrap bracelets is two colors of cord and a pair of scissors.

What you do:
This is a four strand braid tutorial, basically the same as a fishtail braid.
1. Cut two pieces of different color cord. Make sure they are the exact same width. Remember that you will be folding each piece in half to make the bracelet, so measure accordingly.
2. Put the pieces together and fold them in half. Tie a loop knot in the middle
3. Tape the top loop to your table. This step isn’t necessary, but it makes it easier to braid well. Split the four strands in half so that there is one pink and one yellow on each side.
4. Start braiding by moving the yellow strand from the left side to the right side. Make sure you are grabbing from behind and pulling the strand in front of the others.
5. Now grab the second yellow strand from the right and move it to the left side.
6. Grab the pink strand from the left and move it across to the right side.
7. Grab the second pink strand from the right and move it over to the left.
8. Continue alternating between pink and yellow until your braid is as long as you want.
9. Tie a knot at the end of your braid. Now you can wrap the bracelet around your wrist and slip the knot through the original hoop to secure the bracelet.
