A thread bracelet, better known as a friendship wristband, has been around for ages. This handcrafted jewelry offers a variety of patterns that you can make. Alternatively, you can create a design of your own.
Thread bracelets are made by knotting colorful strings and repeating the procedure. If you are a beginner, try to make this simple bracelet pattern: the braided wristband. First, you need to prepare the following materials.
Now that you have the supplies in your workspace, it is time to use your creativity!
Step 1: Get four to ten threads, then cut them in the same length. Hold one end of the strings together and tie a knot. Secure it with either a cello tape or a safety pin. Add more pins as needed while you are creating the pattern.

Step 2: Get a piece and make eight forward knots on the remaining threads held together.
Step 3: Do the same thing with other strings and repeat the color design once you have used all the threads.
Step 4: Tie a knot at the end of the wristband when you are happy with its length.
Step 5: Tie both sides of the bracelet together with a knot and trim any excess strings.
