DIY: Friendship Bracelet

I love the arm candy or arm party trend, but it can get expensive to buy new bracelets, and after seeing a lot of bracelets I decided to make my own. It is easy, cute and inexpensive.

 You will need beads, hemp cord, buttons , scissors and stick tape. ( you can get the hemp cord and the beads from Ebay).
Step 1: Measure you wrist with the hemp cord, leaving more hemp cord than your wrist size.
Step 2: Take four times your wrist size with some excess cord.
Step 3: Make a loop for the button.
Step 4: Cut the extra string.
Step 5: Star braiding.
Step 6: Once you braided about three time, put one bead in each side, leaving the middle one with nothing. Continue braiding and adding the beads.
Step 7: When you are happy with the length, add the button and make some nots. And you are done!


Do you like this trend?Let me know down bellow. If you make any bracelets I would love to see so send me a picture on my email: thegreyclover@gmail.com
