Now a days woodwork isn’t just used for tables, roofs or birdhouses but it is also used in accessory form as well. Wooden accessories has become an on going trend and it will become more and more popular as time goes on.

1. Take one Shoelace and fold in the middle. Tie a knot so that it makes a loop at the end. You now have two ends. Tape shoelace loop to a flat surface to begin.

2. Take needle & thread & pierce through shoelace loop. This needle and thread will be used throughout the bracelet so make sure it’s long enough to work with.

5. Loop the thread under left shoelace from outside in. Your thread should be in the center of both shoelaces. Repeat with different color sequin until length desired.

6. After you’ve made your length, sew the 2 shoelaces together in the middle. Choose a button that will fit the loop at the top of your bracelet. Sew that button on the end of your bracelet.
