Listed below are the tips you need to follow when creating a hemp beaded wristband:
Cut three pieces of hemp with a length of 16 inches for each string. The hemp strands will be weaved together; hence, the wristband will not be that long.
Hold the strands together and tie one end to about two inches. This will serve as the bracelet’s lock once the accessory is complete.
Start by doing the classic braiding technique. Spread out the three hemp strings, and then cross the right hemp onto the center. Then, cross the left strand onto the middle hemp.
Continue weaving the pattern by doing the above step repeatedly. Then, stop braiding when you reach 25% of the length of the wristband.
Continue with your weaving pattern, but this time, you have to put some beads in the wristband. To do this, you need to cross the right string to the center and add your first bead. Cross the left hemp over the bead after sliding it on. Repeat the process and do this alternately until you complete another 25% of the bracelet’s measurement.
Go back to your usual braiding until you reach the end of the wristband once you have added enough beads. Tie a knot to secure the beads and the design and trim off excess strings.
Voila! You are ready to rock your finished wristband. Create several beaded hemp bands and stack them on one of your arms for a bohemian vibe or wear a single beaded wristband for fun. Wrap it around your wrist or ankle and use the free ends of the wristband to tie a knot. Have fun in making and wearing your handmade beaded hemp bracelet!
