hocus pocus friendship bracelet stack

These cute DIYs aren't just a bunch of hocus pocus...they are adorable! Make them for yourself, for your friends or with your friends!
Step 1
These cute DIYs aren't just a bunch of hocus pocus...they are adorable! Make them for yourself, for your friends or with your friends!   Step 1 To make the friendship bracelet, first cut two 36" strands of black, purple and white craft cord. TIP: This measurement is based on a 7" wrist. Adjust lengths of floss cord as needed. Step 2 Gather cords together and align them so they are even; then on one side, tie a knot about 8" from the end. Tape the cords to your working space, above the knot. Step 3 Now, separate the cords as you would like the stripes. TIP: In the shown bracelet, they are arranged: black, white, purple, purple, white and black. Step 4 To start the knotting process, place the black (left) cords perpendicular over the white cord next to it, creating a “4” shape. Next, wrap the black cord end under the white cord and thread through the loop of the “4” shape and pull the end so the knot moves up to the top. Repeat for a second knot. Step 5 Now, make two knots over the purple cord (next to the white) as you did in Step 4 with the white. Continue making two knots over each cord across with the black cord until the black cord has worked its way over to the right. Step 6 Repeat Steps 4-5 with the white cord. Work it across all cords. Step 7 Continue this pattern until you reach about 3½"-4" of striped cord. Step 8 Tie a knot with all of the cords together just under the last knotted row. Step 9 Separate the excess cords into like colors: black with black, white with white and purple with purple. Braid about 3", knot and trim ends. Do this on both ends. Step 10 To wear, tie braids how desired. Step 11 For the spider bracelet, open a jump ring, slide on a clasp and the loop on the end of the last link on the bead strand and close the jump ring. TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion. Step 12 For the stretch bracelet, cut a 10" length of Stretch Magic® jewelry cord. Step 13 Thread your beads and the jump ring of your charm onto the length of cord. Step 14 Tie the Stretch Magic® into a tight surgeon’s knot, then tuck its ends back through the closest beads. Step 15 Add a dab of bead stringing glue to the knot. Now, pull the ends tight, so the two adjacent beads press together tightly, hiding the knot. Trim the ends of the stretch cord, then set your bracelet aside to dry before you wear.   Share your project photos with #MakeItWithMichaels
