• How to Make an Ankle Bracelet

    The heat is on, and this is the time to flaunt your body by wearing summer getups, shades, and accessories made of beads and shells. However, there is another way to add flair to your look. All you have to do is wear an ankle bracelet or anklet.

    As the name implies, it is an accessory worn around your ankle. They come in an array of styles and are available in fashion boutiques, but you can also create them to give these bands a unique design.

    This post will teach you how to make an ankle bracelet, but first, you need to prepare the following materials:

    • Toothpick
    • Beads
    • Clasps
    • Measuring Tape
    • String
    • Pen

    Now that you have the supplies with you, it is time to do the following steps:

    1. Measure the String

    Cut the strand according to your ankle's length. Using a piece of thread to hold the beads is likely to break. Using two to three strings, on the other hand, lengthens its longevity.

    2. Find the Middle of the Trinket

    Grab the three pieces of thread and line them up. Find the center and fold it in half, then mark the overlapped area with a pen.

    3. Stitch Your Middle Bead

    Pick a bead that you want to put in the middle part of the anklet, then loop it into the strand. Push it down to the marked spot and tie a knot on either side.

    4. Use a Toothpick

    Fold the thread onto a toothpick to slip the remaining beads through the anklet. This will be enough for the beads to fit in but strong enough to stop the string from fraying.

    5. Measure Half an Inch from Your Middle Bead

    Use your measuring tape and mark half an inch away from your center bead in both ways. Tie a knot on this area and insert a new bead in the anklet. Tie another knot after putting the bead in place.

    6. Keep Beading

    Continue measuring half an inch from each bead and fill the anklet with uniformed ranged beads. Don't forget to knot both sides of each bead so that they stay where you put them.

    7. Test the Length

    Test the size of your anklet by wrapping the accessory around your ankle. You can add more beads or take one off when needed. The key here is you have to leave about two inches of string on both sides.

    8. Use a Clasp

    It is advisable to attach clasps to your beaded anklet because the beads are more substantial than the thread. A lobster clasp is the best choice for this accessory because you can tie it quickly on both ends.

    Your anklet is complete! Knowing how to make an ankle bracelet can come in handy whether you want to keep it for yourself or give it as a gift. This DIY project is a fun craft for baby showers, slumber parties, and other group gatherings.
