Step 1: Things You Will Need
For this craft you will need:A CLIPBOARD (or something heavy to stop the bracelet from moving). SCISSORS EMBROIDRY THEAD (or wool)
Step 2: Starting Off
Pick three different colours of embroidery thead,to mesure how much you need of each thread pull a bunch of thread out and then half that put the start of the thread at the tips of your fingers and go all the way to your elbow then cut it.
Step 3: How to Start
Once you have all your threads you should have three threads folded in half you put them together and tie a simple knot at the top leaving a small loop. Now put the loop securely under your clipboard it should look like you have six threads now but we are going to pretend the two threads of each colour are one thread.split the threads up like the picture at the top.
Step 4: Making the Bracelet
Two make the bracelet it's like braiding your hair the thread on the left goes over the thread in the middle so it is now the middle thread then the thread on the right goes over the the thread in the middle so it is now in the middle repeat this steps left right left right until the bracelet is the size of your wrist
Step 5: Finishing Up
