Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut a 5' piece of hemp cord. Tie the center of the cord around one of the crossbars of the bangle using a basic square knot. Add a needle to one end of the cord.

Step 2 String one bead onto the cord, and pull it across the segment of the bangle, and feed the end down toward the middle of the bangle. Feed the other half of the cord across the inside of the bangle, across the segment, and bring it up toward the outside of the bangle. Take both ends and tie a square knot around the crossbar of the bangle.

Step 3 Repeat Step 2 on the remaining sections of the bangle until all sections have a bead attached.

Step 4 String one more bead so it sits next to the bangle, and tie two square knots. Repeat two more times. Leave about ¼" on each end and trim off any remaining cord. Dab some glue on the last two knots.
