WHAT IS HEMP CORD USED FOR?
- Jewelry making: Hemp cord is an essential item for jewelry making (bracelets and necklaces) and beading. Among the most popular sizes for creating jewelry is the 1mm diameter size, which comes in 20 different colors.
- Gardening: The round nature of hemp makes it an ideal cord for garden décor because it's easy to work with and doesn't cut hands or plants. Furthermore, hemp is naturally weather-resistant and biodegradable. To tie and bind vines, tomato plants or stake trees, use 1.5-3mm diameter.
- Macramé with hemp cord: It is a favorite choice for people who make macrame. Macramé is a unique form of fiber art and can be used to make clothing, jewelry, purses, wall hangings and even plant hangers.
- Baker's twine: Chefs use hemp cords to tie food and cookies together. In addition, it can be used to tie up baking boxes.
- Hang tags: Give your products an additional splash of color. The label can be attached to clothing, gift tags, baked goods, and Christmas tree ornaments.
- Nautical decoration: The good thing about cords made from hemp fibers is that they can be used for interior and exterior design.
- Packaging: The hemp cord is perfect for tying up packages and presents. The use of hemp in this way adds a nice, eco-friendly touch to your gifts and adds an artistic touch.
- Paper crafting: Papercrafts made from hemp are natural and eco-friendly. Hemp cord makes attractive all types of paper projects, especially cards.
- Scrapbooking: Scrapbookers often use hemp cords. To form a book, attach a hemp cord to the pages for adornment or secure them together.
- Shibari: Shibari is an art form from Japan in which hemp has been used for hundreds of years. Hemp is the best material for this application because it can be dyed red, black, or any other color you want. The cord gets softer as time goes on. Shibari ropes are most popular in 6mm and 8mm sizes.
HEMP CORD BRACELETS DIY
- Attach the seven beads to the 16-inch centerpiece of the hemp string. You can attach the cord to your corkboard with a T-pin in the center of the knot by tying an overhand knot near one end of the hemp thread.
- The 70-inch cord should be folded in half and slid behind the center cord attached to the corkboard. Once you have tied the first half of the square knot around the center cord, make sure to have the same amount of yarn on each side so it stays centered.
- Complete the square knot by tying the other half. Be sure to push up this first square knot against the overhand knot we made earlier and repeat it five more times. This will give you six square knots.
- Attach one of the beads to the square knots you just tied. After the bead, tie two square knots, ensuring there is no space between the knots and the bead. Tie two square knots between each of the remaining beads. After you slide the last bead into place, tie six more square knots to complete the pattern.
- Tie a half knot on the inside of the bracelet on the side inside the bracelet after you have connected the last six square knots. Let the knot dry for a few minutes after adding craft glue, and then cut the strings close to it.
- You can smooth the cut ends down with more glue if you like. Tie an overarm knot at the end of the remaining two ends of the center cord so they are the same length. The end cords should be about three inches long, so the sliding closure has plenty of room.
HEMP CORD NECKLACE DIY
- The natural color of hemp is tan, but many other colors are available.Twine made of hemp is usually 1mm thick, although you can also buythicker cords. If you prefer a coarser yarn, make sure your thread iseven and smooth.
- Rub a bit of beeswax on the hemp thread before you begin. It keeps the knots tight and protects the piece from getting dirty.
- Half your cords. Ensure the ends of each string are evenly spaced.
- A knot should be tied overhand. It prevents the loops from unraveling.
- Make sure your lines are arranged. The shorter strands should be on the inside and the longer outside.
- Make a half-square knot. Grab the line at the far right. Subsequently,draw it over the last thread, underneath the first two. Make a loop onthe far right. Under the first two cords, bring the cord to the left andover the last cord.
- Tie up the knot. You should maintain tautness and tension on the twocenter cords parallel to your work surface. As the knot runs up thecenter cord, vertically pull up the two outside cords. Tighten the knotat the top.
- Continue knotting the rope. Alternate the side from which you start your hemp for a matte look.
- Add a bead to the two center cords. Attach the threads to the knot.Lastly, tuck the two outer cords beneath the bead in a square knot. Youcan keep knotting your necklace without adding beads.
- Knot it until you have tangled 6 inches.
- When your necklace is about halfway through, attach a pendant.
- Knot the cord away from the pendant. String the other bead on the twocenter cords when you reach the length between the first bead and thependant. Tie the outside cords together underneath.
- When the necklace reaches the length you desire, knot it.
- You can finish your necklace in several ways. Clasps can be used, or youcan tie it off. If you don't want to use claps, you can tie an overhandknot just beneath the last half-square knot. You can also apply glue tothe knot to connect it more securely.
- You would need to finish off the ends of the necklace with metal or wirecord tips if you chose a metal clasp. Glue can be used to secure thetips. Depending on your clasp type, you can bend the metal clasps overthe cord. You can also crimp the clasp around the thread if yourfasteners use coils. Add jump rings to the clip to complete.
- Trim about five inches of excess cord from the overhand knot to have enough length to adjust and tie the necklace.
