Two Girls and a Pin with Amanda and Brittany

DIY Washer Bracelets
First you'll need to gather your supplies:

Ribbon  (not too thick)
Washers (different sizes are available, so choose the size you prefer)

Measure out your ribbon and cut.  Allow a lot of extra wiggle room.

Tape the end of the ribbon to make threading easier.

Slide on your first and second washer.

Here's the tricky part:  Take the taped end of your ribbon and thread it back through the first washer.  

Make sure you pull it tight.

Now, weave the taped end of the ribbon back through the second washer like a figure 8.

Thread on your third washer.  Weave the taped end of the ribbon back through the second washer.  Then weave it back through the third washer making another figure 8 and pulling the ribbon tight.  Continue this pattern until you've gotten the desired number of washers on your bracelet.

Trim the excess ribbon and tie around your wrist.

Voila.  Washer bracelets.  This can be adapted to a necklace if you'd like.
