Friendship Bracelet: Gift idea

Gift giving is a major part of the holidays. Every week starting now, I will post some ideas/ tutorials for homemade gifts. Today, I will show you how to make a friendship bracelet. This is a simple, easy craft that kids can make too.

  • embroidery thread/floss
  • clipboard
Here are directions from  

  1. Select 4 colors of floss 25" long. Tie a knot around 1½" from the top and tape to table.
  2. Separate floss by color and imagine the floss as A,B,C and D.
  3. Hold string B straight and knot string A around it.
  4. Pull string A toward the left and tighten it.
  5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to get a double knot.
  6. Make double knots with string A around each of the remaining strings (C and D).
  7. Now you are in the second row, tie a double knot with string B around C, D and A individually.
  8. Keep repeating this pattern until bracelet reaches desired length.
  9. Tie knot to secure all strings and trim both ends to about 1¼" long.
    Pin It Now!
