Friendship Bracelets have been around for generations. I remember making these bracelets when I was in summer camp using the craftlace. Last week I stopped in at Hobby Lobby and picked up a pack of craftlace with the foam wheel so I could show my daughter how to make these friendship bracelets. She has big plans to make enough to share with her friends later on this summer.
Friendship Bracelets for Kids
I decided to buy the Safari Pink Collection Value Pack at Hobby Lobby so my daughter could easily make friendship bracelets. I wanted the foam craft wheel to make it simple for her.
Tip: If you shop at Hobby Lobby, make sure you use your 40% off coupon! You can print it out each week or just show the coupon from your phone.
Each time you move the lace from top to bottom, you end up with 2 strands on each side. Then you turn the wheel one turn counterclockwise. The arrows help you remember which direction you need to turn.
Friendship Bracelet Variations
There are many ways to make these fun bracelets. Here are a few tutorials.
Have you ever made these friendship bracelets? Do you use a craft wheel or just a safety pin on a pillow? Got any fun tips or stories about these bracelets? I’d love to hear!
