How To Tie A Fish Hook Bracelet (Rope Bracelet)


The fish hook bracelet is a fun and easy DIY project. It only takes about 20 minutes to make one, and you only need to know two basic knots: the reef knot and the timber hitch. Not your average bracelet, this version of the fish hook uses an old-school fishing hook as its clasp. The significance of this design goes beyond aesthetics - it’s a great way to reuse something that might have otherwise been discarded and end up with an excellent piece of handmade jewelry in just a few steps!

What You’ll Need

Fishing Hook - The first thing you’ll need is an old fishing hook. You can find these at any tackle shop or even the dollar store - make sure to choose one that is big enough for your wrist. - String - This can be any string or thread. We recommend waxed thread (traditional fishing line), cotton, or linen thread to give it a nice, sturdy feel. - Scissors - Measuring Tape - Bracelet Clasp - The clasp will be the part of the bracelet that secures the two ends. You can choose any clasp you want.

Step 1: Find a Hook

Fishing hooks may be old and worn out, but they are still very sharp and dangerous. Find a well-used hook with a broken barb to ensure that it poses no harm. The broken barb won’t cause any damage when worn in close contact with the skin. The central part of the hook is used for the bracelet. The most important thing when choosing a theme is the size. You will need to make sure that the angle is large enough to fit around your wrist comfortably.

Step 2: Tie a Reef Knot

The reef knot is a simple and easy knot you can learn in a matter of seconds. It is a good choice for joining two pieces of string or cord together to make a bracelet or necklace. The reef knot is often used to tie a fishing line to a fishing hook. To make the reef knot, you need to make a loop with one string and then pass the other piece of yarn through the loop. Then you will pull both pieces of string to tighten the knot. The reef knot is still a good choice if you use a waxed thread to make your bracelet.

Step 3: Tie a Timber Hitch

The timber hitch is an essential knot often used to tie a rope around a post or tree trunk. It is beneficial when you don’t know how long the position is or when you don’t have access to other tying equipment. The timber hitch can be used to make a bracelet by wrapping the end of the thread around your wrist and then tying the timber hitch around the loose end of the string to secure it in place. The timber hitch is a simple knot to tie and is particularly useful in tight spaces where there is little room to tie a regular knot.

Tip - Anchor the Hook Together

Instead of tying the loose ends of the thread together, you can anchor the loose ends of the line to the hook itself. To do this, tie a reef knot around the fishing hook. The loop of the reef knot should be located near the head of the hook. Now tie a timber hitch around the reef knot to secure the loose ends of the thread to the fishing hook. You currently have a bracelet, and the loose ends are anchored to the fishing hook.

Final Steps

The bracelet is ready once you have tied a reef knot around the fishing hook with the loose ends of the thread and tied a timber hitch around the reef knot to secure the ends. Ensure you don’t connect the ends too tightly, as you want the knot to be loose enough to be taken off quickly. You can use the same knot to make a necklace by adding an extra piece of string or thread and tying another reef knot around it. If you like this project, why not make a matching pair of earrings? Tie the loose ends of the thread around the top of the hook twice before tying the timber hitch. You can then add a decorative bead to the loose ends of the line for a stylish finishing touch.


The best thing about this project is that it can be made with basic knots. The fish hook bracelet is a great way to use old, worn-out fishing hooks. It is also a great way to use the materials you have at hand. It is an excellent project for those looking to learn new skills or for short-on-time crafters.
