  1. Choose 3 coordinating colors of embroidery floss for your bracelet.

Cut 12 inch lengths of embroidery floss – 1 of each color for a thin bracelet, 2 of each color for a bit thicker of a bracelet, 3 of each color for thicker, and so on.

Line one end of each of the strands up, then make a loop, and a knot; leaving about 1.5 – 2 inches of embroidery floss above the knot for tying later on.

Using a piece of tape, secure the embroidery floss above the knot to a table.

Divide your embroidery floss into 3 strands of colors. For instance: if you have 2 strands of each color, each of your strands should have 2 lengths of embroidery floss.

Arrange your strands: One color on the left, one color in the middle, one color on the right.

Braid your strands. Start by moving the left strand over the middle strand (which now the left becomes the middle), then the right strand over the middle (which now the right becomes the middle), then back to the left strand over the middle, right strand over the middle. Continue this process until you have your desired length. Most kids ages 5-12 will be 5.75 – 7 inches, and most adults will range from 6.5 – 8.5 inches.

Now make a loop, then knot at the end.

Trim any excess embroidery floss, leaving 1.5 – 2 inches under the knot for tying the bracelet on.

To wear the bracelet, place it on your wrist, and tie the two ends together in a knot.
