We've never encountered a DIY jewelry project we didn't love — or at least, attempt — so we were hooked the second we saw this awesome braided necklace over on A Beautiful Mess. Made with fabric tape and your choice of either thin white rope or colorful parachute cord, this statement piece looks simple enough to whip together on a weeknight and debut at brunch by the weekend. The only hard part? Dealing with your gal pals who'll want one just like it. Click on over for the instructions, and start planning that craft night!
