turtle and shell stretch bracelet stack

No matter the time of year you can always have a little of the beach with you with this Turtle and Shell Stretch Bracelet Stack! See below for the instructions to learn how to make this super cute easy DIY!
Step 1

Cut 10" of stretch cord for each stretch bracelet you want to make.
TIP: This is for a 7" bracelet when finished. If you need a longer length, adjust as needed.

Step 2

Add a bead bug to one end of a stretch cord.
TIP: This is a great tool to use when stringing beads to keep them from falling off the cord. You can also use tape or even a binder clip if a bead bug isn’t available.

Step 3

Add your beads as desired.

Step 4

Tie the ends together in an overhand knot and then a surgeon’s knot, Add a dab of glue to the knot. Let dry.
TIP: To make a surgeon’s knot, perform the actions of an overhand knot, but before you pull it tight, wrap the tail around a second time, then pull tight.

Step 5

Tuck the ends into about three adjacent beads and trim excess cord.

Step 6
Repeat Steps 2-5 for each stretch bracelet in your stack.
