DIY Painted Hex Nut Bracelet

I’ve been on a pink and yellow kick lately. I’ve made these bracelets in the past, they take a little bit of time to get the hang of braiding in the hex nuts, but with a little patience and practice, you can easily get it done in about 20 minutes. I put a springtime spin on it by painting the hex nuts-and I looovveee how it turned out!

I had most of this stuff around the house, so I only had to purchase the craft paint for $1.75 per bottle.

I painted the hex nuts using a foam brush and did about 3 thin coats, with about an hour of drying time in between coats.

Be sure to tape the ends of your twine to make it easier to string on the hex nuts. See a full tutorial for how to braid in the hex nuts here.  The key to making this bracelet is to take it slow, and always keep the hex nuts pointing up towards the top of your bracelet as shown in the below pictures.

Wrap it around your wrist a couple times…and you’ve got a trendy and fresh new bracelet!
