There's nothing better than to make beautiful string bracelets on a lazy afternoon with your girlfriends. So let's not waste any more time, and see how to each of the bracelets are made.
Candy Stripes
● Before you begin, gather―3 colors of strings (3 green, 3 orange, 3 purple), safety pin, cardboard, measuring tape, and scissors.
● Keep the clipboard in front of you, cut the strings (9 total) at least 3 feet long, and safety pin it to the clipboard.
Candy Stripes Bracelet Step-1
● Now hold all the strings together and tie a knot on the top. Arrange the string in this pattern―2 purples, 2 orange, and 2 green.
Candy Stripes Bracelet Step-2
● We'll start with the first left green string, taking it above the 2 strings, then behind 2 strings, and bringing it in front of 1 string.
Candy Stripes Bracelet Step-3
● This is a half-hitch knot.Secure the knot properly. With the same first string.
Candy Stripes Bracelet Step-4
● You will make another half-hitch knot on the next 3 strings. Keep making the half-hitch knots till you reach the far right side.
Candy Stripes Bracelet Step-5
● In the end, the left green string has now become the right side string.
Candy Stripes Bracelet Step-6
● Again you will begin with the next first string and work your way to the right side with the half-hitch knots.
Candy Stripes Bracelet Step-7
● Work your way down the strings and when you get the right size of the bracelet, make another knot to end the bracelet.
● Braid the remaining strings in the end.
Braided Strings
● Before you begin, gather―5 colors of strings (3 green, 3 yellow, 1 pink, 1 blue, 1 white), safety pin, cardboard, measuring tape, and scissors.
● Keep the clipboard in front of you, cut the strings (9 total) at least 3 feet long, and safety pin it to the clipboard.
Braided Strings Bracelet Step-1
● Now hold all the strings together, leave at least 2 inches at the top, and tie a knot. Arrange the string in this pattern―3 green, 1 pink, 1 white, 1 blue, and 3 yellow.
● If you know how to braid hair, then this will be a piece of cake for you. Hold the left 3 green strings in left hand, right 3 yellow strings in right hand, and let the other 3 strings in the middle.
