How To Make an Easy Friendship Bracelet
You Will Need
  • Four or more pieces of embroidery thread, each about two ft. long
  • Masking tape or a safety pin
step 1Tie your thread
Line up your thread so that the ends are even. Tie a knot about two inches from the top of the bundle.
tip To make a thicker bracelet, use more than four strands of thread.
step 2Secure your thread
Secure the knot to a flat surface with masking tape, or pin the knot to your clothing, like on the knee of your pants.
step 3Knot your thread
Spread your threads out, and starting on the left, count them one through four. Hold strand two tight as you take thread one and loop it around.
step 4Finish strand one
Pull the end of thread one up and through to make a small, tight knot. Then make a second knot directly under the first. Go down the line, and double-knot strand one around strands three and four.
step 5Repeat with strand two
Use strand two to make double knots around the other threads.
step 6Continue knotting
Continue double-knotting with strands three and four, and repeat the entire process until the bracelet is long enough to fit around a wrist or an ankle.
tip Experiment making stripes of different widths by knotting one strand more times and another strand fewer times.
step 7Finish
Using all your thread, make a knot at the end of your bracelet, trim the ends, and present your homemade gift to a friend.
