If you have a July issue of Living, you may have seen these updated "camp crafts" made with brightly colored lanyard (aka gimp, boondoggle etc)-
For a modern "camp" feel, we painted birch hooks white (from Vermont Branch Company), and used them to display the necklaces.
This close-up of the bangles give you a better look at the different patterns made by simply wrapping the lanyard around the leather bracelet-
The necklaces couldn't be easier to make- so I whipped up a bunch before picking my four favorites for the shot-
Add a summer-camp vibe to your desk top with some laced accessories-
and garland- how fun!
What is the most nostalgic childhood craft for you? And what kind of crafting will you be doing this summer?
