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.

Warm Colors Are:
White
Yellow
Orange
Pink Red

Cool Colors Are:
Green
Blue
Brown
Black

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:

1. Purple
2. Orange
3. Blue
4. Red
5. Green
6. Yellow

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.
