How To Make Embroidery Floss Bracelets

Things Required
  • Masking tape
  • Scissors
  • Embroidery floss of 4 colours (25 inches)
  • Start the work on the floss bracelet by tying a knot of about 2 inches from the top of the floss strands. Tape the strands together at the place where you will be working on the bracelet and then separate them according to the colour. Name the strands from left to right as string 1,2,3,4 respectively.
  • To make the bracelet, start with the first string. Loop over the first string to the second string and then loop it under the second string. Make sure to hold the second string straight and to pull the knot till it is closely secured. Repeat the same process in order to create a double knot.
  • Once you have created the knots with the first and the second string, take the first string and make double knots along with string three and four.
  • The second string should be now in the far left position. You will have to make a double knot with string two along with string three, string four and string one. Repeat the same process with string three and string four in the first position.
  • Continue making knots with different strings in the same sequel until you reach the desired length of your bracelet. Once you have got the desired length, gather all the strings and secure the end with a proper knot.
  • This will give you your embroidered floss bracelet which you can either gift to your best friend or wear it on your wrist and start a new style statement.
