How to make a ribbon and bead bracelet?
Step 1: ruffle lace trim as flowers
Cut out a strip of satin ribbon measuring about 2cm longer than your wrist circumference and a lace trim which is a little shorter than the ribbon. Lay the lace trim on ribbon and ruffle both ends as flower shape, secure with thread.
Step 2: add embellishments
Sew three flower clay beads on lace trim in place, then two buttons at interval between clay beads. String several pearl beads and sew two strings at each side next to the lace flower. Fold both ends of ribbon towards backside and secure with glue, leaving a gap at each side allowing nylon threads passing through.
Step 3: braid closure
Cross a piece of thread through a gap, make a knot. Bring the left tail to the right side; bring the right tail over the left tail and passing through the left loop under left tail. Pull the threads tightly and continue to make 4 or 5 knots. Do the same to the other side.
Cut out a string of nylon thread, group four tails, and then make several square knots as closure part. Cut excess thread and melt ends by lighter. Thread two pearl beads at each end and knot.
The final look is like this:
