Friendship Bracelets

August 29th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Make your friendship last all year round by showing how much you care. A friendship bracelet is a sweet, simple way to tell a good friend how much they mean to you. No matter what your age, a friendship bracelet will put a smile on someone’s face. These colorful crafts were originally made by natives in Central and South America to help grant wishes. It was believed that one would tie a bracelet around a friend’s wrist, and the friend would make a wish. The friend would wear the bracelet until it fell off on its own, at which time their wish was supposed to come true.

The best thing you could wish for is a good friend! Play with different colors and patterns to make friendship bracelets for your closest girlfriends or your kids. Learn how to make a friendship bracelet using different weaving techniques available to you for free in our Learning Center. Be sure to browse our wonderful collection of nylon cord to use in each design, too. These make great gifts for anyone as a simple reminder of how much they mean to you. Adorn them with special charms to personalize them if you like.

Sometimes, when we grow up, we forget how much friends really mean to us. Take a moment to make something special for a person you love being in your life.

    This is so perfect as I am planning a party with my daughter’s friends and I needed a gift for each of them. Thanks for the idea and directions!
