This fun and easy project was one recently featured at an Etsy team meet-up. These are great fun to make on a Saturday night. You will need:
2. Embroidery Thread
5. Ruler (optional)
Perfect for you and a friend to do.
Step 1: Pick your colors
Pick any 6 colors that appeal to you. Generally people will mix and match warm and cool colors. Purple is both a warm and cool color. You can find embrodiery thread in any arts and craft store. I like to use DMC cotton thread as it holds up and is very durable. You can find it at Michaels (where we got ours). I like Michaels because they have such great coupons. In general, with 6 colors, you can make 10 bracelets. This is a great sleepover or BBFs project.

Step 2: Cut Off 3 Feet Long of Each of Your Threads
Cut your thread. You need sections 3 feet long in each color you selected.
A quick secret is to the distance between your fingertips and nose is roughly 3 ft. for everyone!
Step 3: Tie a Knot At The Top
Take all the threads at the top and tie them together into a knot. Normally people secure the knot under something to hold it steady while making the bracelet. Clipboard. Box. You name it. Simply something to hold it tight.
Step 4: Tie The First Knot and Row(Color)
Spread out the colors in the order that you want to tie them in. I tied them in the following order:
To tie your first knot. Take the strand you will have to tie the first color (purple) with the last color (yellow). Tie the purple in a knot over yellow thread. This is the first row and color. Repeat a second time.
