This fun, popular craft has been a huge hit! It’s perfect for teens, tweens, and even grown-ups. You can modify it for any time of year, with different designs of course


The twine gives it a trendy organic feel and a strong hold, but you can use any ribbon of a similar thickness, such as rattail (satin), or leather.

As you can see, I made it using square wooden beads. The light wooden ones are perfect for using with Sharpies. I also made a hot pink one with a black permanent marker (try any shade of red or pink) and a purple one with a silver paint marker (for that, you can get a pack of assorted colors).

This bracelet is super cheap to make so it can be made for a whole class, at a party, or as a party favor! While it’s great as a seasonal craft for Valentine’s Day it is also great for friendship bracelet making at any time of year… Print these boxes to take them home or to gift them in.





I have also created a silent tutorial video to go along – so if you prefer to sit back, relax, and watch, here you go:



Supplies Needed for Heart Friendship Bracelets:

  • Jute Twine – about 3x the size of the wrist to be safe. You can also use baker’s twine or regular cotton twine – whatever you prefer,
  • Square Wood Beads (3 per bracelet)
  • Sharpies or other fine tipped permanent marker. 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. If you’re using darker beads, try paint markers.
  • Scissors for trimming 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.

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.

6. Repeat with the other side.

You can see, on a second bracelet, I outlined the hearts with a black marker for a little variety.

You can take them on and off as needed due to the double slip knot – isn’t that great?!
