Hex nut bracelet! More like Hex No bracelet.

I was so excited to finally get to do the hex nut bracelet that I found on Honestly WTF . So I put it on my list of things to do this winter break, and I am happy to say that I can now take it off my list.  Unfortunately….. it didn’t turn out quite as I hoped.

You know those Reddit comics?

these ones?



Definitely tempted to try this one

Anyways, I have come to terms that I am not a craft master like I had hoped I would be.  I went to Michaels and I gathered my materials to make the hex nut bracelet.  I layer out my twine and my hex nuts I brought my buttons out so I could button it around my wrist as opposed to tying it.  So as I tied my final knot I stepped back and I looked at my creation, envisioning my creation around my wrist.

each nut being perfectly woven and braided into each other

imagining all the cool compliments I would receive for my craftiness..

But lets get real……

Close enough


i had plans for this one to wrap multiple times around my wrist... but it was awkwardly too loose so a necklace it became!



Close enough

  1. Keep in mind that many of us who proclaim to be crafters have often had similar results. It just tells me that the one we see and are trying to copy was probably the 100th or 500th one they did before they got it right. So, unless you want to keep ‘practicing’, simply toss it aside and move on to another fun project. 🙂

  2. It’s actually quite simple I think the problem for you was the string you used! You need a thicker cord like waxed leather would work better.

What do you think?
