Hex nuts were really big. Back in 2011, 2012. Which makes my post just a little dated. But hey I say real style is timeless and so is really stylish DIY πŸ™‚ Regardless of whether it’s 2010, 2015 or 2050, these little DIY projects are just as cool as ever πŸ™‚ I’ve tried to choose tutorials which I find are unique and out of the ordinary πŸ™‚

  1. Since Holst & Lee was at the forefront of the hex nut jewellery revolution, the first that comes to mind is obviously The Stripe‘s (previously Stripes & Sequins) DIY Neon Tassle necklace with Holst & Lee. Never mind that this tutorial really only uses hex nuts as a minor accent, I still say it’s a hex nut piece of jewellery πŸ™‚ The necklace wouldn’t be the same without it πŸ˜›

Thanks Grace for letting me use your photo πŸ™‚

2. Most of the hex nut DIYs out there are for bracelets and, to be honest, they get repetitive after a while so I was pleasantly surprised to see this hex nut earring DIY πŸ™‚ Pretty chic don’t you think? Kudos (and photo credit) goes to Vanessa at Cafe Craftea (cute name, don’t you think?)- do check out her website onΒ http://cafecraftea.blogspot.sg/2014/03/diy-glitter-hexnut-earrings.html?showComment=1409134253944


3. Last but not least, I definitely couldn’t miss out HonestlyWTF‘s macrame bracelets. Maybe the most re-pinned, re-posted, re-created hex nut DIY out there? Photo credit and full tutorial on Β http://honestlywtf.com/diy/diy-braided-hex-nut-bracelet/


So that’s it. What do you think? Hopefully you’ve seen something new today πŸ™‚
