Living on the edge

with spikes....kind of like Anastasia Steele.
(if you don't get this, then you need to read 50 Shades of Grey)
I might never stop talking about this book/Mr. Grey.  :)

How about some DIY spikes?
What you'll need: 
  • a chevron friendship bracelet
  • 5 3/8” brass cone studs
  • a pair of small, sharp scissors
  • a screwdriver
  • 1.  Use a Sharpie or marker to make 5 evenly spaced marks along the middle of the friendship bracelet. From the backside, push the point of the scissors through the mark to create a hole.
    2. Push a screw through the hole. Twist the coned spike onto the screw and use a screwdriver to tighten.
    3.   Repeat the steps with the rest of the spikes. Voila! Your friendship bracelet has a spiked spine.

    Put a little spike in your life.
    Happy Tuesday and happy May lovely ladies!

    I am loving this trend right now! I loved making friendship bracelets when I was little! I bought floss a while back, but just need to find the time to make some. And love the 50 shades ref! I'm reading the 2nd right now ;)
