Easy Beaded Wrap Bracelet

I have seen these bracelets everywhere and came very close to buying one.
But I knew I could possibly make one for much less and it didn't look that difficult. 
I started by purchasing 2mm leather cording and the beads came from my stash.
I tried to figure it out a few times on my own but then I found this awesome tutorial on Make It/Fake It with step by step images to guide you thru the process.
I used beading thread instead of fishing wire since that is what I had on hand. You start with a button and the top and start your bead.
It went along pretty well, but it does take time to perform the beading correctly. I taped the top and the bottom of my cording to the table so it was easier to wrap the thread around and bead without everything rolling around. Once I was done I tied off the thread and made the super easy closure.
Just knot where you end and make sure you loop fits over your button (I had to take a few beads off to make mine fit). Then my bracelet was done and ready to wear.
It was a bit time consuming, takes patience and a lot of beads..
But the results are well worth it and really can't wait to make another one!
