Craft: Braided Bracelets

Dear Squigly,

I'm going to tell you how to make this Braided Bracelets craft. I am wearing one right now. It's light and dark purple and orange. It is very pretty.

Love, Brittney, age 9, U.S.A.

I think these bracelets would make nice friendship bracelets too.

Embroidery Skiens for making Braided Bracelets

What you need:

What you do:

  1. Make sure you have enough yarn for your arm to slip on and off the bracelet and make sure you have yarn at the top before the knot. Tie a knot at the top of the yarn to hold the strands together.
  2. You can hold the strings in your mouth while you braid or tape the beginning of the bracelet to a table to hold it still while you braid.
  3. Braid the string and when you are almost at the end tie the two ends together.
  4. Experiment. What would your bracelet look like if you added 3 beads?
