How to Make Your Gratitude Friendship Bracelets
Step 1: Wrap some stretch cord around your wrist to see how much to cut. Be sure to leave enough extra cord to tie the bracelet.
Step 2: Place your beads beside the string so you can get the arrangement just how you’d like before stringing the beads on the stretch cord.
Step 3: Tape one end of the stretch cord to your table so that you can easily string the cord with beads.
Step 4: String each bead onto the stretch cord. We chose “grateful for fun” as our message of gratitude. Feel free to substitute the word “fun” with family, friends, books, songs, or anything at all that you’re thankful for.
Step 5: Secure your friendship bracelet with three knots, so it won’t come undone. Be sure to pull very tight.
Step 6: Trim away any excess cord and enjoy your new bracelet!
Now you have a gorgeous piece of jewelry that is perfect for the season of gratitude! We had the time of our life crafting our Swiftie-inspired gratitude friendship bracelets, and we hope you've enjoyed all the magic we made.
