No relic of our childhood trickles with wistfulness the manner in which friendship bracelets do. Back in the day, we created them with our very own two hands. We could wear friendship bracelets at any time- when we swam or when we went to sleep every night.
What’s more, they signified a very important bond between friends. Friendship bracelets are as enthusiastic as they are tasteful. They’re physical portrayals of what our identity is to one another, and what we hold dear.
Materials Needed For Friendship Bracelets:
- Weaving thread in your favorite shades
- Ring clasp
How To Make Friendship Bracelets
Nowadays, friendship bracelets come not from craft camps or a friend’s goodwill, but from our preferred retailers. For a fun DIY project with a personal touch, follow the next 8 steps and create your own friendship bracelet.
First Step To Make Friendship Bracelets
Take three shades of strings or threads. Cut each shade of thread into seventy inches pieces. String all the strands through the little opening in the ring clasp. Bind the threads to fasten them onto the ring clasp exactly in the middle. Tape the metal clasp to your working surface, and partition the threads on either side with the goal that each side mirrors each other.
Begin By Knotting
Start knotting the threads together to form a chevron bracelet. Ensure that you tie each knot at least twice. I overlooked that step when I began and the knots in the initial segments became excessively weak. And that is not desirable.
Now, Move On To Weaving
Keep weaving the bracelet till it attains the perfect size for your wrist. For an easier method to get the correct size, use a plain string in the size of your wrist as a guide while you’re weaving the bracelet. Also, make sure that you account for the size of the clasps or ties at the end of your bracelet.
When you have reached the correct length for your friendship bracelet, attach the clasps at both ends of your creation. Before we secure the clamps, we’re going to add some additional thread to make a decoration. This isn’t essential however, it needs very little energy and also disguises the extra bits and strands very well, which don’t look too neat.
Time For The Tassel
Cut additional strands of six inches to make into tassels for your friendship bracelet. These additional strands can either match the same shade of your friendship bracelet or an alternate color. Accumulate all of the bracelet’s threads together and tie them up into a tangle at the base of the ring clasp. Thereby securing the tassels also onto the two ends of the finished bracelet.
Check Your Knots For Strength
After you’ve checked every knot, overlay the bit of string over the base of the big bundle tightly a couple of times. Trim the extra ends to get a clean finish. Trim the decorative tassels at the end to your ideal length, ensuring the ends are even.
And there you go – your friendship bracelets are ready!
