The Art and Style of Friendship Bracelets

The Art and Style of Friendship Bracelets


There's just something beautiful about a friendship bracelet. I don't know if it's the 454 gorgeous colors DMC offers. The few materials needed to create something beautiful. Or the ease of making the bracelet itself, and how relaxing it can be. As a child, I have fond memories of making bracelets with my girlfriends.

For as long as I can remember, I have always been an entrepreneur. While most kids' first business is the adorable lemonade stand, mine, was friendship bracelets. I had the fancy little case, the bobbin winder, and cardboard bobbins. I organized them by color families, and remember just looking at them, thinking about how much I loved the colors! My love of friendship bracelets carried through high school, where I actually made a little money making bracelets and sometimes necklaces.

Though, I don't know that friendship bracelets have ever gone out of style, it certainly appears that they are becoming more popular than they have been in recent years.

If friendship bracelets are new to you, the process of making one may be overwhelming. Here are two very simple patterns, easy enough for any beginner! The first is the arrow bracelet and the stripped bracelet.

Both stripped and arrow style bracelets are featured in these photos. (source)

Friendship hair combs? I love this hair comb wrapped in DMC Floss. It adds interest to a simple, everyday, plain Jane hair comb - not to mention color!  (source)

This is a great idea for any holiday party! Abigail, with the help of her mom, made each of her classmates a friendship bracelet!

This is fun! I used to make them back in high school.

Bonus: a lot of companies have Pantone to {embroidery floss company} conversion charts. For those companies that don't offer them outright, some Google searches can help you find what you're looking for. Just yesterday, I saw a DMC to Pantone chart.
