Color Wrapped Bracelet

Just look at this too cute bracelet I made.

  I am not too crafty, 

I would love to be and I try occasionally but usually I fail:(

  But I do believe I am very happy with this:)

                                             


Materials Needed:  
Two Conchos, 
Leather lace,
 Embroidery Thread 






Double up the leather lace and cut a piece of the leather lace long enough to wrap around your wrist 2 and 1/2 times.

    Pick some pretty colors, 4 or 5 or how ever many your wish.  I picked 5.


Place the ends of each color even with the loop of the leather lace.

Tie the ends in a knot.


Choose one of the colors and begin wrapping it around the leather lace and the other threads. 


Continue wrapping alternating colors of your choosing.
   





  Tie off the embroidery threads and cut off the extra.
  
Slide one of the conchos onto the lope end lacing it through the slots



 Thread the ends of the leather lace through the second concho and tie in a knot and cut off the extra.  Please don't look at my nails, they are very scary.  I was also in the middle of a second crafty project (I know, I am actually making two crafty thingys, shocking huh?)
 

Twist twice and fasten the bracelet by  slipping the second concho through the lope 

Oh Yes! This was fun and it's just too cool:)
