DIY Chain Wrap Bracelet

These chain bracelets are super easy to make, and super fun to stack. They're the perfect way to add a pop of color to your arm candy. Play with different color suede cord!

Flat chain
Suede cord
Craft Pliers
Tape Measure
(Width of chain and suede cord should be similar)

Measure the size of your wrist 2-3 times around (depending on how many times you want it to wrap around)
Have the chain be just the right length of your wrist wrap length
Snip off chain to desired length
Measure suede cord 8 inches longer than chain
Fold chain in half and thread cord through the middle chain
Fold the suede cord in half at center chain
Begin on one side and hold the chain in between your fingers to ensure it stays flat
Weave cord through chain (through the back then down into the front)
Be sure that the suede is not twisted and held flat
Continue until you reach the end
Turn around and finish the other half
Loop suede cord twice around the last chain on each end
Pull to secure

You should have 3-4 inches of suede material on both ends to tie bracelet together
Enjoy and have fun!
