Step1. Supply Gathering
So guys, the first crucial step we all must know is to gather all required materials for making a wood beaded men’s bracelet. Let me show you some real graphic representation.
Essential Supplies for Making Wooden Bracelet for Men
- Wood Beads (Small Hole Beads)
- Elastic Stretchable Cord
Step2. Measure Cord Length and Stretch a Bit
Take 10-inches elastic stretchable cord and slightly stretch it a bit. Make sure you don’t pull it off too much. It should be moderately pulled in order to perform beading efficiently which I will explain in the later part of this tutorial.
Step3. Stringing Wooden Beads
Now we’ve reached the actual process that is called stringing wooden beads. Start putting wood beads one by one to the cord. To understand better, let me show you with an image. Take a peek and try yourself. It’s not at all difficult.
Step4. Knotting at the end
Bracelet won’t be complete without knotting at the end. Wrap cords at least four times as shown below then tie knot at least thrice. Repeat this step one more time and make at least three knots.
Step5. Glue the Knotting Part
Drop off the pinch of glue to the knot part to fix the position as per the image below to get more clarity.
Step6. Snip off Extras
After performing the knotting part you will observe extra cords. Take a scissor and snip off extra cords coming out.
Step7. Hide Knotting
Post knotting, it’s paramount for every DIY jewellery artist to hide the visible knotting part. This can be performed with the help of a skewer/needle or a toothpick to push inside the bead. That way, knotting won’t be visible and your bracelet will give a perfect finished look.
Step8. Bracelet is Ready to Wear
Accessorize and slay it with a fabulous handmade men’s wooden bracelet. Awesome!
Step9. Showcase Wooden Bracelet
This is the most fun as you will showcase your bracelet by doing some photography. You don’t have to buy a professional camera, just a smartphone, a chart paper, a tripod for a perfect position to click pictures and lastly decorate with flowers, plants and stones.
How to Waterproof Men’s Wooden Bracelet?
Suppose you have wood beads that are unfinished wood, all you need is to sand wood and convert it to finished wood beads using a dremel machine. The next step is to paint beads using acrylic colors.
Waterproofing is an essential part to seal your paint and it gives a glossy look to your wood beads. The process is very simple. You need a skewer or toothpick, wood beads, thin paintbrush, varnish, a damp cloth, and turpentine oil.
Take a long skewer and insert beads one by one to avoid your fingers in contact with varnish. Apply varnish on wood beads in small amounts and let it dry for at let the varnish dry for at least 24 hours. See the glossy effect of your bracelet the next morning. You’ll love it.
Important Note: Varnish hardens the paintbrush hence, I would highly recommend you use turpentine oil and wipe paintbrush using a damp cloth. This will prevent your paintbrush from getting hardened.
Add Embellishments to Enhance the look of Bracelet
