DIY Nautical Knot Bracelets |
Hello faithful readers!  One more short post about camping, then I promise I am moving on with my life and my blogging!  So just in case you thought we were completely roughing it out there in tents on the Canadian Shield, well…
As you can see at least we brought our creativity and jewellery love with us. We always pack a bin with crafty creative supplies for the inevitable rainy days.  
Can you tell what we used to make these?  Mine is on the left, made from part of the clothesline.  And Miss Personally's is the rope we use for tarps.  Oh yeah.  Work with what you’ve got.  That’s my motto.

Here was our craft table.  Red tablecloth, red tea mugs, red-roofed screen tent.  The iPhone is for looking up the instructions on my Pinterest board which you can also find here.  It’s a great tutorial and easy to follow.  The only change we made was to use epoxy instead of the glue suggested in the materials.  We were roughing it a bit after all, and it made that step a bit fiddly.  But it still worked out.  A hot glue gun would have made it much easier.
The first time it was tricky to get the correct length for the completed bracelet and we used one jump ring "borrowed" from the tackle box to make it just a bit longer.  Perfect.

What do you think?  Pretty cool, right?  We had fun making them and wearing them.  And if we ever need to hang up a tarp or put towels out to dry, we’re all set…
