DIY- Colour Block Bracelet- Part 2

Thanks a bunch for all your lovely comments on my last DIY HERE.  Here is the matching PART 2- even simpler and less materials required. 

--------------------------------
DIY COLOUR BLOCK BRACELET

Just grab your bit of rope (free from your shopping bag handle) and 3 colours of cotton. That's it! It should cost you about 10 cents.
1. Wrap the rope around your wrist twice and then hold firmly as you squeeze it off- you need to get it the right size that it won't fall off, but so you can take it on and off!
2. Wind cotton tightly around the centre point and finish by threading the cotton back through with a needle.

3. Grab a contrasting colour of cotton and then wrap tightly a short space from the centre point.  Go over the end of the rope.  Finish by threading the cotton back through with a needle.

4. Grab another contrasting colour of cotton and wrap tightly on the other side of the centre point. Go over the end of the rope.  Finish by threading the cotton  back through with a needle.


5. Voila. Hoorah you are done. EASY AS PIE!!
6. Now... Wear it!

GOOD LUCK! Let me know how you go!!
