DIY| Friendship bracelets

Heyyy As you can see from the title today I'm going to do a tutorial on how to make friendship bracelets! So here goes!

Time it takes: About half an hour (it depends!)
 Scissors
Cello Tape or Pin
Embroidery thread (Any colours you want) This bracelet is Rainbow colored :)
 Cut each thread about the length from your shoulder to your hand

 I like to use two threads of each colour but you don't have to! If you have a bracelet that is about four threads it will be really thin and a bracelet that is about 10 threads will be quite thick!

 Bunch up all the colours together in the order you would like them to be.
 Tie a knot at the top of the bundle of threads
 Either sello- tape the thread to a table,book etc or pin the knot to your trousers while you are working.
 Split up the colours
 Get the first thread and knot it to the second thread

 Then knot it again
 Keep with the first thread and knot it twice to the third thread
 Continue to make these forward knots going from left to right with the strand that is most left :)

 Once you feel like it is long enough tie a knot at the end
 TA DAA!
 If you want to you can plait the ends of the bracelet to make it easier to tie
 And there you go! A bracelet ready to give to a friend :D
To be honest I tried this frist last weekend but I wanted to get better at making them before show ye how to do it! :P

Hope you all give this a try and if you find any part confusing tell me below or email me! :)

  22. Awh, this brings back memories! I used to make these ALL the time when I was younger - I even sold them to the kids on my street in a little makeshift stall outside my house!

    The colours you've used are lovely, reminds me of the summer and festivals!
