Scribbled bow cupcake toppersWho doesn’t like a colourful cupcake? Well if you’re like me and are a bit lacking in icing skills or just plain lazy you can jazz up any set of cakes with a simple stab of a little stick.
PS. Don’t try to eat them, you’ll just look a bit silly.(Does not come with near fatal attempt at chocolate muffins.)

How to make a Circle weaved bracelet! - Quite image heavy under the cut.
[[MORE]]

All you’ll need is, some card, seven strands of thread, a pen, a pair of scissors and something circle to draw around.

first draw a circle on your card, simple enough huh?

Next add eight little lines and mark the centre, this doesn’t have to be mathematically perfect but it’s best to try and get them as even spaced as possible.

If you’re forgetful like me you might want to add some little arrows to help you remember what direction you’re going in.

Now cut it out being careful not to bend it like I did because I’m an idiot, and stab through the hole in the middle, you don’t want the hole to be too big and the width of a pencil is usually about right.

Now for the string, tie a starting knot in the end of 7 strands of whatever colour you like, I’m doing two complementary colours and a blue one just to help in the next steps.

And poke it through the hole, knot on the wrong side so all the string and the bit you drew on face you.

Next assign each bit of string it’s own slot (with one to spare) and the weaving can begin!

Time to start weaving, it’s rather simple once you get the hang of it, simply pick up one bit of string and jump it over two before popping it in the empty space.

Like so, now just repeat the steps in the direction of the little arrows and it’ll start growing.

and growing

and growing

getting even longer

still going!

really long now

Almost there

And done! When you’ve finished or get bored enough to just give up pull on the weaved end and you’ll be left with something like this.

Now knot and trim the other end…

And you’ve got a bracelet!

Spanner metal ball chain necklace

£10 ~ $15

I’m not gonna lie I’m quite proud of this one. With two little spanners with two joined mid-bars in between this necklace would suit both women and men whether they work in construction or just really like Meccano.
