The following is a guest post from our friends at I Spy DIY.
While in the fashion closet at work last week, I came across these fun bungee cord bracelets, and of course I was inspired to make my own! With a quick trip to Home Depot I found the supplies for a couple of dollars. I am a fan of wearing a stack OR the other night, when I had some friends over, I made one for each (including a guy friend!) and they have been wearing solo.
Supplies: Compression sleeve and bungee cords from Home Depot, Super glue and lighter.
Cut off both ends of the bungee cord. Measure so the bracelet is a little larger then your wrist. The bungee will stretch a bit but allow some room.
Keep the ends from from unraveling by waving a lighter over them
Put the compression sleeve on the end and superglue the inside.
Join the two ends under the compression sleeve, and hold for at least a minute. Fill in gaps with more superglue, to secure. Let dry.
