Fishtail Friendship Bracelet Tutorial

Welcome back! In this tutorial you're going to learn how to make the easiest, most awesome friendship bracelet. I'm in love with this bracelet because it's super easy and so pretty. Who wants to be stressing while they're crafting? Not this lady!

  • Embroidery floss in 4 colors
  • Scissors
  • Scotch Tape
  • Something sturdy to tape your bracelet to
Step 1:
Measure your floss. I wrapped it around my wrist twice and added an extra 2" then doubled that. Cut 3 strands of each color this length. Keep in mind that you want to have them as close to the same length as possible to avoid running out of floss.

Step 2:
Fold your thread in half and tie a knot at the end with the fold so you've got a loop.

Step 3:
Tape the loop down to your sturdy surface very well. You will be pulling and tugging on this so make sure you've got enough tape to hold it down. It will make this project so much easier.

Step 4: Separate your bundle into 2 even sides with 3 strands of each color. It helps if you separate each of the colors in the beginning so you don't end up with tangled strands down the line. I labeled each color to make it a little easier to explain.

Step 5:
Take one side of strand A and bring it across the other strands on the same side and tuck it under the opposite side.

Take the opposite side of strand A and repeat above but going the other direction.

Step 6:
Repeat step 5 with strands B, C and D


Continue repeating step 5 until you are happy with the length of your braid and tie off. Voila! You've just made an awesome friendship bracelet! Don't forget to make another one and give it to a friend :)
