Guest Post - DIY Braided Watch Strap

So I am on day 5 of my holiday and I have a nice tan, and have not yet fallen off of the boat ( I hope, I actually have no idea since I wrote this before I left!)

Anyway, today I have Cambridge Crafter and Blogger, Claire from Claireabellemakes keeping you entertained with a DIY braided watch strap, take it away Claire...

Hi guys! I’m so excited to be here on Laura’s blog today whilst she is off on her hols (lucky thing). 

I know Laura is a big fan of DIY and jewellery like me, so I thought I’d share a little tutorial today for a DIY Braided Watch Strap. It uses the simple knots that are used to make friendship bracelets, so it might be a bit of a nostalgic craft for some of you! I hope the photo step-by-step guide is clear, but if not just tweet me @claireabellemks or send me an email at 

Happy Crafting!

The supplies I used are from Knot and Bow (glitter twine) and eBay (jewellery findings and tools).

  1. Such a great way to jazz up a watch! :)

  2. What a fantastic idea Claire!! A great way to fix a broken strap as we all know straps don't last as long as actual watches ;)
