DIY: Cobra braid bracelets23:50
I am trying to make my own jewelry every once in a while. Not all tries are successful though :). I know this trend of cobra braid has been popular for a long time, but I discovered it recently and I love it :). I wanted to share my creations and maybe inspire you to try some, if you have too much time on your hands ;).
Note: You can use any materials you like. I used plastic cords, which can be found in kids department stores for about 3 € for maybe 20 cords or more. You can even use old clothes to make this. What ever you have laying around. I advise to use longer cords then you think, because you can always snip of the rest. Especially if you're doing it with plastic cord, use very long cords and tight firmly and evenly to get a nice look.
How to do a cobra braid
You start with one long cord, which you fold in half and secure on something. I used this clasp on my-don't know what's the name, you know hard thing that can hold your papers with the clasp :). Then you take another long cord and also fold it in half. Place the middle under the two cords.
Then you take cord A (as it's seen on the picture) and create a loop, by folding it in half circle over the two basic cords. Then you take cord B and go over the cord A.
