DIY 'Boho Love' Bracelet

'Boho Love' Bracelet
Today is Friday which means Week 2 of the Holly Jolly Jewellery Giveaway starts today and I have another jewellery DIY for you!  

I'd first like to say a big congratulations to Nora Salem for winning the 'On The Rocks' Necklace during Week 1 of the Holly Jolly Jewellery Giveaway!  I hope you enjoy it and for those of you who didn't win, you can follow the DIY on how to make the necklace here or purchase it from my Etsy store.

This next DIY is for the 'Boho Love' Bracelet.  This bracelet has a bit of a Hippie vibe to it and can be worn with many different outfits.  I learned how to make these macrame friendship bracelets when I was about 7 and have always loved them.  I recently discovered how to make heart designs and decided it would be a nice DIY project to share with you as it is versatile and can be used for birthday gifts or Valentine's Day.  

I found a great tutorial online that guided me through the process which you can follow here.  If you've never made these types of bracelets before, I recommend reading this post to learn the basics.  The only differences between my bracelet and the one in the tutorial are the colours I used (I bought pink and black 100% cotton yarn from the Dollar Store), the length (I made mine a bit longer), and I added a vintage button as a clasp.  The button was easily attached by securing it in place with a few knots and then trimming the excess yarn to complete the bracelet. 

If you don't have time to make this little cutie, no worries!  For Week 2 of the Holly Jolly Jewellery Giveaway, the prize is this bracelet!  The way you can enter the Giveaway is to like The Refurbished Ruby's Facebook Status Today announcing the start of Week 2 of the Holly Jolly Jewellery Giveaway.  You can also get an extra entry if you like The Refurbished Ruby's Instagram Post Today of this bracelet.  The winner will be announced on Facebook and this blog next Friday, December 14.  

That's it for today!  I hope you have a good weekend and for my Vancouver readers, I will be at Changes tomorrow (December 8, 2012) from 3-5pm making jewellery and if you buy 2 or more Refurbished Ruby pieces, you get $10 off!  So come visit me.  I'd love to meet you!
