Today you are in for a real treat the lovely Eleise from One Artsy Mama has graciously blessed you with a super fun and easy DIY project. Don't have any major plans today? Do this project! I guarantee you won't regret it! If you make these bracelets, please send me a photo and I will happily do a post of all the ones I see. Please be kind to Eleise, she did an excellent job on this post and I appreciate her bunches!

Hello! I’m Eleise from One Artsy MamaSince friendship bracelets are popping up everywhere, I thought I would take you all back to when we were young & were busy whipping them up for everyone we knew & share with you a fun new twist on the friendship bracelet.


All you need is-
*Fabric scissors
*Ribbon
*Chain


First, cut your ribbon into 3 long strips.
Then tie them to one end of your chain.



Then you begin your braiding. First, take the ribbon on the left & loop it under the other 2 ribbons. Then take the ribbon from the right & loop it through the ribbon on the left. Bring the far left ribbon up from behind & through the ribbon on the right. Grab the outer 2 ribbons & pull tight.



Repeat until you have your desired length & tie your ribbons to the other end of the chain.


It’s so easy & fun! Try varies widths of ribbon to get different looks. I went with a wider ribbon to give my bracelet a chunkier look.

Fun have!

This takes me back to the old days of doing these for hours! The chain makes it more grown up! :) Great tutorial!

I'm loving them right now! My sisters and I have been making them from embroidery floss lately, but this ribbon idea is fantastic! Definitely going to try it!
