Materials for a Friendship Bracelet
If you have been wondering how to make simple friendship bracelets, you will be glad to know that it is not difficult and does not require a lot of materials. You will need the following:
- 2 strands of embroidery floss in a basic color
- 2 strands of embroidery floss in your friend's favorite color
- 2 strands of embroidery floss in your favorite color
- Measuring tape
First Step: How to Make Simple Friendship Bracelets
Cut two strands of floss, 24 inches long, from each color.
Line up all of the strands so the ends are together. Fold the bundle of strands in half.
Tie a knot in them, leaving a loop at the top.
Secure the loop on the clipboard, and separate the strands so that the same colors are together.
Bring color A to the middle of the three colors to begin the braid.
Cross color B over color A.
Cross color C over color B, and continue to braid the strands, alternating colors.
When the braid is long enough to go around your wrist, pull the ends through the loop and knot them.
