Beaded Friendship Bracelet

Happy Sunday my lovelies! I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend – whatever you got up to; whether you had a chilled one or are nursing a hangover today; this DIY tutorial is so easy to make, you’ll be able to create, create, create and all whilst still in your PJs! A great addition to the arm party; this DIY makes a really lovely Xmas gift or stocking filler. Plus, you can totally mix it up with different threads and types of beads; thus suiting anyone’s personal style!


What you need:

  • 3 lengths of embroidery thread – slightly longer than the circumference of your wrist
  • 7 beads (make sure the hole is big enough for the thread to fit through)
  • 3 jump rings
  • 1 lobster clasp
  • Superglue
  • Scissors

How to:

  1. Line the three lengths of thread together.
  2. Attach the lobster clasp onto a jump ring. Slide the jump ring onto the three lengths of thread and tie a knot in the threads, about  3cm down.


  3. Start braiding the three lengths; braid 4 times then slide a bead onto the furthest left thread before continuing braiding. The two other threads should flank the bead on either side and keep it in place.


  4. Continue alternating the braiding and beads: braid 4 times then slide a bead on etc.
  5. When you’ve placed the last bead onto the bracelet, braid the threads another 4 times.


  6. Attach one of the jump rings to the other and slide one of the rings onto the threads. Tie a knot.
  7. Trim any slack thread and secure the knots with a drop of sugerglue.
  8. Leave to dry.


Super easy and super cute! This is such a great gift for your girlfriends and the best thing is it won’t take you long to make bracelet after bracelet!

Happy Holidays!

xoxo   V.
