Hand Woven Friendship Bracelets

What better way to show a friend you’re thinking of them than making them a friendship bracelet? Follow along as we show you how to weave string into a colorful, handmade bracelet.

Supplies

  • String (yarn also works) 
  • Tape
  • Scissors

STEP 1

Cut five pieces of string. Cut each string the same length, approximately 20-24 inches long (depending on desired length). Think about what colors will go together nicely.

STEP 2

Bring all the ends of your string together and tie them in a knot. Be sure to leave enough string at the end to tie your bracelet together at the end. Tying the ends together will create five loops.

STEP 3

Tape down your string to a table or sturdy surface.

STEP 4

Separate out the loops and hold each one on separate fingers. Don’t use your pinky fingers to hold these loops.

STEP 5

Starting with your left hand, weave your pinky or ring finger in the loops of your right hand, weaving under and over the loops. Once you get to the top loop, pull it all the way through. Alternate back and forth between weaving with your right and left hands. As you alternate hands, reposition the loops to your pointer and middle fingers. Repeat this process until your bracelet is complete. 

STEP 6

When you’ve finished weaving, tie off the ends. Your bracelet is now ready to wear!
