DIY Chan Luu Wrap Bracelet

A while back I posted about a wrap bracelet I made very similar to the Chan Luu wrap bracelets.

I had some requests for a tutorial, but since I am terrible with giving instructions for crafts, I found some tutorials elsewhere on the web that were good.  So, if you want your own Chan Luu bracelet without the price tag, here are some links to get you started!  I chose several tutorials because they vary in length and detail of instruction, so hopefully at least one of these suits your style of learning.

Simple instructions and close-up pictures of how your bracelet should look each step:  here

A YouTube video with clear instructions and a close-up of how to thread the beads:  here

A video with very detailed instructions, but not as close-up on how to thread the beads:  here

I actually think checking out each of these would be the most beneficial, because they are all a little different and choose to use different beads and string.  Let me know if you make one and how it turns out!  Happy Bracelet Making!

  5. Amanda, it didn't take as long as I thought. The beginning was slow going but once you get into a rhythm it's really easy and I like to watch TV while I do it :) I think about 3 hours total maybe??

  25. This is awesome!! Thanks so much for sharing--I have been staring away at those Chan Luu bracelets, but the price tags are insane. Or I'm a cheapskate, which I am entirely okay with. Whatever the case, I think I might actually be able to pull one of these off. Yay!
