Bead Landing™ Hemp Friendship Bracelets
Today’s DIY project is inspired by one of my favorite things to do to my hair in the summer – the fishtail braid. (The Beauty Department has an easy tutorial and A Cup of Jo has a fun twist on it – check them out.) The end result is snazzier than a classic braid, but considerably easier to make than a classic knotted friendship bracelet, with the same chevron pattern. My personal favorite is to use a bunch of similar shades for an ombre effect, but you can really do anything… get creative! {All you need for this project is some embroidery floss. Also, the tiny delicate bracelet is a new fave from gorjana.} Fishtail Braid Friendship Bracelets Fishtail Braid Friendship Bracelets

6 Strand Braid Tutorial 6 Strand Braid Tutorial I've been braiding my girls hair for years. All sorts. I love doing their hair.
the DIY: FASTEST FRIENDSHIP BRACELET EVER We were super excited to share the Fishtail Friendship bracelet tutorial with you and we are even more excited to share that we've found an easier way to do it. Don't get me wrong, I will still use the original technique to create more intricate designs but, this new tutorial is so quick you will end up wanting to make one in every color combination possible (like we did!) This tutorial is very similar to the other one so I will just share with you the differences. 1. You will only need to choose three colors of embroidery/friendship thread. Cut two pieces of each color at around 3 feet each.


Wish Bracelets Wish Bracelets In trying to be better about working out of my stash, I am finding all kinds of fun stuff to play with. Some new ideas, some oldies but goodies. This one is an old idea, but one that I loved when I was growing up! It’s been like 20 years since I used to make these, so I am just going to say, I feel they’re due for a comeback. Can I declare such a thing? It’s similar to a friendship bracelet, and makes up really quickly (I did this short stack in an hour).
Before I get into the how-to, check out this picture I shamelessly screen-grabbed from Sara Zucker’s Pose account. That’s my wrist early on Day 1 of MAGIC. A few hours later I had even more bracelets because I *had* to keep making new ones as examples. Also, 122 hearts! Thanks for the love Finally, Sara Zucker is just as funny and awesome as her popular blog – follow now because you’ll want to see her updates from NYFW.

Woven Friendship Bracelet Tutorial
When M. came home from her camp with school, she showed me this yellow bracelet she made with 'scoubidoo' strings. One of her friends taught her how to make these and of course I wanted to have a go at it too. Instead of scoubidou string I used strips of fabric for one and leather - what did you think?!- shoelaces in offsetting colors for another one. I believe both resulting bracelets look really nice. The possibilities in terms of material to braid with are endless. Summer bracelets DIY

Friendship Bracelet DIY Friendship Bracelet DIY My daughter Maude/Mimi prepared this Friendship Bracelet How-to for you. Here’s what she says: I love making these for my friends — both boys and girls like to wear them. Sometimes I wear just one, and other times I like wearing a whole bunch. I like wearing them as anklets in the summertime. Once you get the hang of it, this is a really good activity to do while you’re watching a not very good movie.

michael ann made.: woven friendship bracelet tutorial i love the summer friendship bracelet trend that i keep seeing in blog land, so i thought it would be fun to share with you another way to weave a friendship bracelet. one of the parents at work showed me this technique of using a circular cardboard loom and i love how quick it goes, you can easily finish a bracelet in one sitting. - cardboard - something small and circular (like a teacup or ramekin) - scissors, ruler, pen - embroidery thread in pretty colors , thin yarn, or ribbon trace a circle onto your cardboard, and use a ruler to draw 8 lines
