Supplies Needed for Heart Friendship Bracelets:
- Natural Twine – about 3x the size of the wrist to be safe
- Square Wood Beads (3 per bracelet)
- Sharpies or other fine tipped permanent marker. If you’re using darker beads, try paint markers.
Wooden beads are super economical – cheaper that many others. You can go for bright colors instead of the naturals I used if you want something more vibrant. You’ll want a black marker for those. Using twine makes it very cheap as well. The pack of sharpies I have includes many colors for a great price, so I have a color ready for whichever product I need it.
How to Make Heart Friendship Bracelets
1. Use the sharpies to create outlines of hearts on your beads and color them in.
2. Do this on all four sides of your beads, in the same direction.
3. String three heart beads onto the twine and center them.
4. Tie a knot on each side of the beads, pulling it tight against them. This keeps the beads centered and adds a touch of style.
Just like this…
5. Now you’re going to close your bracelet in a way that requires no hardware, but can still be taken on and off. Tie one of your “tails” around the other one. Make sure that the second end of your strings threads straight through the know without twisting.
7. Make sure your two closure knots are tight and trim your twine. Your bracelet should look like this.
8. Give it to friends to wear and enjoy!
You can see, on a second bracelet, I outlined the hearts with a black marker for a little variety.
