"Excuse Me Sir, Where Are Your Nuts Located?"

Peak my Pinterest: volume 2. This round went much better than the drug addict snowmen. I decided to tackle the Hex Nut Bracelet from Honestly WTF.

I started by trying to track down the right materials (obvi). Finding the rope was no problem. I chose two different kinds of rope to experiment with: one suede, one leather. 

Here is where it gets tricky. Unlike all the other people I read who did this project, I didn't just have NUTS laying around the house in an abandoned tool box. I went into Lowe's and walked around for 20 minutes unable to find the "nuts" section. I just was praying I would stumble upon the nuts and not have to ask the Lowe's man, "Excuse me, where are your nuts located." And VOILA I found the nuts... one problem though, I couldn't find any BRASS nuts.. grrr.

Then the Lowe's man comes up and says, "Can I help you with something?" and without thinking I blurt out, "Uh yeah, I can't find your brass nuts." GAH!

ANYWAYSSS... I grabbed my nuts and ran outta there!


had to tape down the rope, AND YES I bought new tape for the occasion!

You need about 18-20 nuts. Braid your rope for about an inch.

Then you will start braiding your nuts into the rope. 

Then continue braiding another inch down and tie off the rope.
