canada day friendship bracelet

Feeling nostalgic? Try making these friendship bracelets with floss and DIY a charm to add. Tie bracelets on wrist to wear.
Step 1

Measure and cut two 36" [91.4 cm] lengths of #666 Bright Red floss.

Step 2

Gather floss together and align them so they are even. Fold them in half and tie an overhand knot about 8" [20.3 cm] from the fold.

Step 3

Now, cut through the bend of the floss. Tape the floss to your working space, just above the knot.

Step 4

Separate the floss so each strand is flat on your working surface.

Step 5

To start the knotting process, place the left-most strand perpendicular over the one closest to them, creating a "4" shape. Next, wrap the working strand under the closest strand and thread through the loop of the "4" shape. Pull the ends so the knot moves up to the top. Repeat for a second knot over the same strand closest to the first.

Step 6

Repeat Step 5 with the next strand. Work the first strand across all remaining strands until the first strand works its way over to the right.

Step 7

Now, repeat Steps 5-6 with the strand that is now the furthest to the left. Continue this pattern until you reach the bracelet length desired.

Step 8

Tie an overhand knot with all the strands together just under the last knotted row.

Step 9

Cut the excess floss about 8" [20.3 cm] from the knot.

Step 10

Repeat Steps 1-9 for a white striped bracelet. Set them aside.

Step 11

Cut two 24" [61 cm] lengths of #666 Bright Red and one 24" [61 cm] length of #666 Bright Red floss.

Step 12

Repeat Step 2-3 with all strands cut in Step 11.

Step 13

Separate the strands into three groups: two red and two groups of two white.

Step 14

Braid your floss groups for about 4" [10.2 cm]. Now, tie an overhand knot with all the strands together to secure the braided section.

Step 15

Tie an overhand knot in each end and trim excess floss so they are even.
TIP: Make a charm with resin and a cutout maple leaf.
