You Will Need
- Four or more pieces of embroidery thread, each about two ft. long
- Masking tape or a safety pin
Tie your thread
Line up your thread so that the ends are even. Tie a knot about two inches from the top of the bundle.
Secure your thread
Secure the knot to a flat surface with masking tape, or pin the knot to your clothing, like on the knee of your pants.
Knot your thread
Spread your threads out, and starting on the left, count them one through four. Hold strand two tight as you take thread one and loop it around. Pull the end of thread one up and through to make a small, tight knot. Then make a second knot directly under the first.
Finish strand one
Go down the line, and double-knot strand one around strands three and four.
Repeat with strand two
Use strand two to make double knots around the other threads.
Continue double-knotting with strands three and four, and repeat the entire process until the bracelet is long enough to fit around a wrist or an ankle.
Using all your thread, make a knot at the end of your bracelet, trim the ends, and present your homemade gift to a friend.
