DIY Anklets

If you’re a fan of DIY projects and love to try your hands at some new DIY accessories, then we’ve got just the thing for you – DIY anklets. These easy-to-make anklets are rustic and will make for some great gifts.


There are three materials that are perfect to work with when it comes to anklets and they are:

  • Hemp twine
  • Thread, and
  • Leather strips

Below are some very cool ways in which you can make anklets using one of these materials.

Braided Anklet

Things needed:

  • Hemp twine, thread, or leather strips
  • A pair of fabric cutting scissors

You need four strands to work with for this braided anklet. The length of the strands should be four times that of the size that you want.

Step 1

Gather the four strands, fold them in half and tie a knot at the folded end so that you end up with a loop as shown in the photo.

Step 2

Separate the strands into two equal sections (i.e. four strands each). Now start braiding using the fishtail braiding technique. If you’re not familiar with the technique, here’s a quick how-to guide. First, take the outer strand from your left section and bring it over to the right section. Then take the outer strand from the right section and bring it over to the left section. Continue doing this to create your fishtail braid.

Tip: Make a DIY leather anklet using this method for a super cool look.

Note: You can attach hooks and clasps at the ends to secure the anklet if you want.

Beaded Anklet

Things needed:

  • Hemp twine, thread, or leather strips
  • A pair of fabric cutting scissors
  • Beads

Follow the procedure mentioned in the above tutorial; the only difference is that here, you are going to occasionally string in a wooden or crystal bead while braiding the strands. This way, you will be adding more color and detail to your anklet, thereby making it much fancier.


Tip: A DIY thread anklet looks best when using this method.

Knotted Anklet

Things needed:

  • Hemp twine, thread, or leather strips
  • A pair of fabric cutting scissors
  • Beads, shells and other embellishments

This is perhaps the easiest DIY anklet that you can make. It involves no braiding or looping and is perfect for those who do not have the patience to be braiding stuff.

Measure out and cut the required length (Note: you do not need four times the length as we will not be braiding the twine in this method). String the beads and other embellishments as per your preference and knot on either side to keep them in place. Knot the ends onto your foot when you want to wear the anklet.

Tip: A DIY hemp anklet works best for this look.
