How To Make Candy Stripe Friendship Bracelets
Cut the floss into three equal parts. Wrap each part around your wrist once. Stretch the floss across your wrist. Fold the three strands of floss into a loop and tape it down to the table.
Put the six strands of floss in order, starting with the strand on the left. Tie the first strand around the others using the overhand knot. The forward knot is used here to make a wide band of the color.
You should be aware of the directionality of the knotting too. It is made left to right, just like how we read.
Start by taking the first strand on the LHS, shape it into a “number 4” with the 2nd strand placed next to it. Make sure the first string goes OVER the second string, and then behind as seen in the image above.
It is important the FIRST STRING ALWAYS GOES OVER THE SECOND STRING as it’ll give it a nice look. This will create a simple pattern that creates a pleasant looped style bracelet.
Slide 3 strands of floss through each hole. Knot the 2 strand sections together. Cut off loose floss.

Yes! A shoelace can be made into a bracelet. To make a bracelet, you need to turn the ends of the lace to form a circle. Then, you wrap both tails around each other until you reach the center. At this point, you should tie them together.
Pull the right tail over and then behind it. Don’t you think it looks a little like a Celtic knot pattern? Stylish!
A long piece of string is attached to a loop in the center of your wrist. You pull the ends of the string through the loop until the loop is tight around the string. Then you tie off the loose ends of the string to make a secure knot.
Next, start by making a loop, then you grab the end of the rope and pull it into the middle of the loop. Then you tug the end of the rope towards the middle of the loop until you make a knot.
Keeping the right tail in place as you work around the bracelet, pull it through the loop and pull it in place. The process can be repeated until the shoelace reaches its end, or you reach the desired length.
Don’t forget to leave a few inches of shoelace behind! You’ll need to be able to tie knots later.
And, it’s as simple as that! You can do this activity by yourself or with friends and family. It’s great fun and a superb way to bond with loved ones whilst doing something enjoyable. Best of all, you will end up with beautiful bracelets to wear and hand out as presents.
