I learned how to make these friendship bracelets back in the days when I was young; I’m not a kid anymore, but some days I sit and wish I was a kid again. If you recognized that Ahmad reference, then you’re cool. If you didn’t, that’s okay; you’re still cool. Ha!
I can’t remember who taught me how to do this, but I do remember really enjoying it back in junior high. And since Steel owns a bag full of embroidery floss, I decided to show him how to do it (on a low Saturday night, or course). We chose all the colors of the rainbow to celebrate the new marriage law! #LOVEWINS!
Learn how to make this bracelet by watching the video below.
To summarize: Choose a minimum of three colors. Cut 2 feet of embroidery floss in each color. Put the strings in order by preferred color. Then, tie them together in a knot at one end. Tape the knot down to a table and separate the colors (like you’re separating hair to braid).
Begin with the first string. Cross it over the next, loop it through, and pull upwards to tie a knot. Sounds a little confusing, but if you watch the video, it’ll make sense. Continue tying knots down the line of colors with the first string until the first string becomes the last string.
Repeat the steps with the next color, and keep on going until you’ve reached your desired length, or until the strings are too short to work with. Finish by tying a knot at the end.
