Step 1: Things you will need

Things you will need to make a wrapped friendship bracelet:

Scissors

Tape

8 Pieces Embroidery Floss

The floss can be whatever color you wish. You can also have as many of one color as you like. I used 4 colors and cut 2 of each of them. You may do whatever you like. EX: 4 strings of 2 colors, 2 strings of 4 colors, 1 string of 8 colors.


Step 2: Cut the Floss

Cut the floss however long you would like. You don't need to make it as long as a regular friendship bracelet because it doesn't take as much string. I usually cut mine about 28 inches long, but you may want to make the strings longer since it is your first time. The strings also need to be doubled up so when you tie the knot it will have a loop at the top.

Step 3: Tie a Knot

You will need to tie a knot at the top of the strings. Make sure you have a loop at the top. You should also make the loop a somewhat long so it gives enough room to tie it on at the end.

Step 4: Tape it Down and Start.

Take a piece of tape and tape the strings to a hard surface. You start by taking two of the same colored strings(you may also use two different colored strings) and wrapping them around all of the strings.

Step 5: Changing Color

To change color you just take a new pair of strings and wrap them around the other strings including the ones you just used. This may be difficult, but it gets easier.

Step 6: Keep Going!

Keep going! You may use any pattern you like and change colors as often as you please. Also, make sure the bracelet fits.

Step 7: Tie Another Knot

When you are finished with the bracelet and it is the right length tie another knot at the bottom of the bracelet.

Step 8: Remove the Tape and Tie it on

Then you remove the tape and tie it on or have someone tie it on for you cut off the extra string and wear your bracelet.
