DIY Fashion: ThreadBanger
Video Demo: How to Beat Road-trip Boredom by Making Macramé JewelryCompiled by Vicki McClure Davidson
ThreadBanger's Rob and Corinne show how making your own macramé jewelry can make long car trips less boring. For older children, this is a terrific, cheap form of entertainment, with the bonus pay-off being macramé jewelry that they can wear themselves or give as unique gifts.
Rather than have kids fritter away the summer or Christmas break playing video games or killing hours every day online with social network sites, teach them to make macramé jewelry.
Corinne demonstrates how easy it is to make a bracelet from hemp twine. By adapting the video instruction, you can make variations of the macramé design and then create unique homemade necklaces, plant pot slings, head bands, belts, and guitar straps. It's 1960s retro!
