NEOPRENE BOW BRACELET (DIY)

neoprene bow bracelet diy francinesplaceblog

Neoprene is becoming something I can't get enough and this means thaaat you are going to
see different projects here, made with this amazing material.
It is cheap, easy to use and suitable for various diys.
And I like it in soft pink, so get use to see it in almost only this colour (haha!).
Really, what better for a lazy Saturday afternoon than making a cute new bracelet in 
about 2 minutes and showing it off on your night out? Yes.
Oh, and with a ridiculously low-but-seemingly-notsolow-cost.
I don't need to add more.

Il neoprene sta diventando un qualcosa a cui non posso fare a meno e ciò significa cheee 
lo vedrete in diversi progetti qui, prossimamente.
Perché è economico, facile da usare e si presta benissimo a molti faidate.
E mi piace in rosa chiaro, quindi abituatevi a vederlo quasi esclusivaente in questo colore (ahah!).
No, davvero, che c'è di meglio per un pigro pomeriggio di Sabato, che realizzare un
nuovo bel braccialetto in circa due minuti e sfoggiarlo la sera stessa? Eh già.
Ah, e a un costo bassissimo (cosa che saprete solo voi).
Non credo di dover aggiungere altro.

You need // Vi occorre:

- 3 neoprene bands, one as long as your wrist circumference and 4 cm (1,5 in) width, 
the other two always with same width, but 12 cm (4,7 in) and 6 cm (2,3 in) length. // 3 strisce di
neoprene, una lunga come la circonferenza del vostro polso e di 4 cm di larghezza, 
le altre due sempre con la stessa larghezza, ma lunghe 12 e 6 cm.
- Multihole punch. // Fustellatrice.
- Pliers. // Pinze.
- A snap-hook. // Un moschettone.
- One rivet. // Un rivetto.
- 2 cm (0,7 in) of chain  // 2 cm di catenina.


How to // Come procedere:

1)
Make two holes in the band (that as long as your wrist circumference), one for each short side. //
Fate due buchi sulla striscia (quella lunga come la circonferenza del vostro polso), uno per
ogni lato corto.


2)
Using the pliers, attach one ring of the chain at one hole, then add the snap-hook. To the
other hole, add the remaining piece of chain. // Usando le pinze, attaccate un anello della catena
ad uno dei due buchi, poi unitelo al moschettone. All'altro buco, attaccate il resto della catena.


3)
Make a hole in the middle of your band bracelet, then insert the long rivet piece. // Fate
un buco al cento del bracciale ed infilate il pezzetto lungo del rivetto.


4)
Create a bow using the other two pieces of neoprene: fold and pinch the longest in a 
8 shape, then wrap the shortest one around it. // Create un fiocco con gli altri due 
pezzi di neoprene: piegate e schiacciate  quello più lungo per dare una forma a 8,
poi arrotolategli intorno quello più corto.


5)
Always keeping the bow pinched, make a hole in the middle of it. // Sempre
tenendo ben schiacciato il fiocco, fate un buco nel mezzo. 


6)
Insert the bow in the rivet and close it. Voilà! // Infilate il fiocco nel rivetto e chiudetelo. Voilà!

    1. Thank you, Gabrielle! I buy everything in 2 shops near my city, they sell all for bijoux-making and creative things. But there are also a lot of online shops where you can find this stuff! Or, at least, sometimes I recycle old (that I don't wear anymore) bijoux, break them and re-use their parts ;)
