DIY with Venessa Arizaga

When you're done with the braid, go back and bundle the ends again, tying them in a knot with another batch of same-colored threads. Venessa wraps it once, twice maybe three times to make sure it is really secure, and then knot it. Use the fray at the ends as a marker, and packing or scotch tape to help you create a clean edge.
