DIY: Braided Fabric Bracelet

I loved this bracelet from Anthropologie, but since it's so expensive, I decided to make my own version!

Step 1. Tie 3 pieces in a knot, leaving about 2 or 3 inches free on the end. Repeat with other 3 pieces.
Step 2. Braid then knot each group, again leaving 2 or 3 inches at the end.

Step 3. Tie the braids together at each end.
Step 4. In the middle, wrap the copper wire.

Step 5. On one end of the bracelet, take one of the loose strips and knot it a few times. Cut away the remaining strips at this end.

Step 6. On the other end, take two of the loose strips and tie them to make a loop. Cut away the remaining stip.

Step 7. Fasten the bracelet by slipping the knot into the loop.
Step 8. Wear with a super gorgeous outfit for best results :)

Some variations could be adding beads into the braid, or adding an actual clasp to fasten it.
