A while ago I got hooked on making friendship bracelets. Though they were time-consuming, I liked the result. Since I have a ton of embroidery floss (perfect for these bracelets!) I ended up making a number of them!
I won’t go into detail about the process, because there are tonnes of friendship bracelet tutorials out there.
However, here’s a quick rundown of how I embellished the ones above.
Left to Right:
Blue Tones: Added studs (taken from a broken watch strap)
Pink/Purple/Yellow: Sewed on colour-coordinating skull beads using matching embroidery thread (I finished this bracelet with a snap closure, as I made it a bit too big!)
(These last two bracelets were made for a friend. As she very much an outdoorsy, nature-loving person, I picked natural colours!):
Green/Brown/Beige: (No extra details)
Green/Brown: Added small beads in the process of weaving the bracelet. I threaded a bead onto the centre two strands and then continued weaving around it, leaving the centre strands out of the design until I reached the bottom of the bead, where I tied it on. This gave the bracelet a ‘wobbly’ shape.
