An easy way to add color to any outfit...
These are super easy to make and the only part of the process that is mildly a pain is the final part but it will make sure that nothing unravels. Enjoy! =)

A little suggestion - before cutting the knots, put a thin coat of clear nail polish over them and allow it to dry before cutting the threads - it'll ensure that they won't untie/unravel.

Cute! I made one with beads, and it turned out pretty good! Very time consuming for me though (I'm slow) but overall very cool!
