COUNTDOWN

One of my favourite shops is COS (as a matter of fact, I'm wearing a COS dress right now!) and I just realised I haven't made a single post about them on my entire blog! Shame on me...
Anyway, counting down to Christmas, COS asked a few of their friends to create DIY ideas -perfect for giveaways- which they will be sharing on a daily basis until Christmas. Maybe some kind of modern day Advent Calender? I like it.



The countdown started exactly a week ago and so far, this is my favourite:

Ball chain bracelet by Tove Christensen






You need: 18cm ball chain (hardware shop), 125 cm nylon string (haberdashery shop), scissors

1. Knot the string onto the ball chain, leave a piece of string before the first knot.
2. Tie one knot between each ball, make sure you tie the knot the same way every time.
3. Cut the string to approximately 8cm at each end.
4. Voilà - tie on wrist.

Easy stuff, right? I'll be visiting my local hardware store for some ball chain, that's for sure.

Visit the COS website for more ideas!
