Step 1: Materials
- Measuring Tape
- 2 Colors Of Embroidery String/Floss
- A Button As A Closure
Step 2: String
First measure out 20 inches of your base (I chose white) and cut it off at the end. Next Measure 45 inches of your wrap color (pink) and cut it.
Step 3: Preparation
Take your base and fold it in half so there is a loop at the top. Tape it down on a flat surface. Now take your wrap and place it under the wrap. Place your wrap as high up as possible without going under the tape.
Step 4: Basic Movements
Take the left strand of your wrap and place it over the left strand of your base. Now take the left strand of your base and put it under your right base strand. Now your 2 wrap strands are parallel. Next take the right wrap strand and place it over the right base strand. Finally put your right wrap strand over your left base strand. Okay now you have your first "eight".
Step 5: Repeat
Now repeat the basic movements until you have a strand that looks kind of like a fishtail braid that fits your wirst size.
Step 6: Knots
Now tie a knot around your base strands at the end of your "fishtail". Do this three times. Next you should cut off the excess of your wrap strands.
Step 7: Button
Thread your button on the two base strands and tie a knot to secure the button onto the strings. Cut of the excess of your base.
Step 8: VIOLA!
Wow! Now you should have an adorable bracelet to give to your BFF! I hope that you enjoyed this craft! If you really liked this craft please share this with friends and family!
