Steps:

  1. Choose three lengths of ribbon, cord, etc. that are totally different to each other in type and colour. For instance, you could choose a piece of chain, a ribbon, and a cord. Or you could choose a length of string, a length of lace, and a strip of torn cotton denim.

  9. Bring both ends together and tie into one large loose knot. Fit the bracelet over your hand and adjust until it fits around your wrist. You want it tight enough to stay on, but loose enough to be able to take it on and off. Tie the knot tightly and trim the ends to different lengths.
