What You'll Need:

Make bright friendship bracelets using three strands of yarn that are nine inches long each.

Step 1: Line up the strands and knot them; leave one inch free at the end.

Step 2: Tape the end to a table edge, then thread a large bead next to the knot. Braid the yarn down to one inch from the end.

Step 3: Thread on the other large bead. Tie an end knot after the bead.

Step 4: Wrap your cool bracelet around your wrist, and push the beads through the braids on the opposite sides, or simply tie the ends off. Make plenty of bracelets for your friends, too.
