So. If you have the above materials what can you do with them? Possibly something really handy and helpful... or you can make a killer bracelet!
I stumbled on Honestly WTF the other day and have fallen hard for their DIYs, there's tie-dying, rope necklaces, pom-poms and this hex nut bracelet. The tutorial specified brass hex nuts, which look amazing, but my local hardware store only had silver, and after assembling I decided that next time I'll also go for the nuts that are a size smaller to keep it looking neater. It was really simple to make and I haven't taken it off since though, so I think it was a success!
The full tutorial is here, but really it's just braiding and then adding the hex nuts one at a time.. easy peasy!
