Modern DIY Bracelets – Perfect for Summer Crafting with Girls

As a girl, I spent a lot of summer days lounging around making friendship bracelets of one form or another.  It started simply with trios of embroidery thread and eventually evolved into more intricate creations involving beads and other such adornments.  Lately, all sorts of inspiring DIY bracelet posts have cropped up around the web and it’s made me nostalgic for those uncomplicated summers.  

 

So today I’ve rounded up a dozen wonderful bracelet crafts.  Share them with a special young girl in your life and carry on the tradition.  Click through for the details.

I am a sucker for bracelets (the easy peasy way to jazz up any outfit) but really? Friendship bracelets for grown-ups? Ok, I’ll go along with it, but only if you make me one!
