You know how when all of your projects seem to be clunkers and you need an easy pick me up? This is just the thing.

Last time I roamed the aisles at Home Depot I picked up this metal thingy. I’m sure there’s a technical term for it. (Just checked with my dad – it’s a hose clamp!)

Its unique industrialness appealed to me.  For $1.30, why not? (I also could not resist the 80 cent small version as a ring.) And you can make it into what I like to call a DIY Home Depot bracelet.

The best part – it’s adjustable! You just turn the little screw to make it as small as you need for your wrist.

To add a bit of color, I weaved in some 1/4 inch ribbon. But I also like it plain.

Glue the ends with E-6000 and clamp to dry.

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year
    and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    Hi, This is a great start…i’m not wild about the adjustable part remaining attached so I’m going to try to weld it (once my hubby shows me). The idea is great. I’ve used the plastic hosing they have for making candy-filled bracelets. Also, i’ve picked up many of the free carpet samples, glued cork board to the back and used for coasters. The paint chips can be used for scrapbooking. Great job!
