DIY Heart Friendship Bracelets


Hello everyone! I’m super happy to be with
you again and I missed you very much! It’s been a while since I’ve done a bracelet DIY
and you know that I love making bracelets. So I am going to show you how to make an adorable
heart friendship bracelet. You only need some thread and a button. Seriously? Yeah, let’s
do this! To make our heart friendship bracelet we need some embroidery floss, tape, a needle,
which is handy if you make a mistake with a knot and scissors. Chose two colors of the
embroidery floss and also take a small button for an awesome closure to the bracelet. Cut
two strands of each color approximately fifty inches or one point two meters long. Put the
four strands together, fold them in half and then make a knot like this. Tape the knot
onto a flat surface and divide the threads into two sets. You need to have two threads
of each color on each side. Colors should alternate and you must have a mirror image
with the left and the right set of threads. The outside thread color will be the color
of the hearts, for me it’s yellow, and the red will be the background.
Now let’s first see how the heart will look like and how to achieve the pattern. Each
heart consists of four rows: Two special rows for the upper half of the heart and two normal
chevron rows for the bottom part. Then you just continue these same steps: two special,
two normal, two special, two normal and so on until your bracelet is long enough.
I am going to start with two normal rows, just because it’s easier to first learn the
basics. Start on the left side with the outermost strand. Make a forward knot by creating a
four shape over the second outermost strand, go under that strand and back out through
the loop. Pull the thread to tighten. Make sure you always knot twice. Continue making
forward knots over the remaining two strands until the working strand reaches the middle.
On the right side we will be making backward knots, so let’s quickly see the difference
between a forward and a backward knot. For the forward knot you have the working strand
on the left and you are knotting over the strand on the right. With the working strand
you make a four shape over the strand beside on the right like this. Take the end of your
working strand, loop it under the red strand and back out through the opening. Remember
to knot twice before moving to the following strand. When making a backward knot you have
the working strand on the right and you’re knotting over the strand on the left. Make
a reverse four shape like this. Loop the working strand under the red one and back through
the opening. Now that forward and backward knots are clear, let’s continue with the bracelet.
I am taking the outermost strand on the right, which will be my working strand for this half
of the chevron row. Make a reverse four shape over the second outermost strand. Loop the
yellow working strand under the red one and through the opening. And of course don’t forget
to always knot twice. Continue making backward knots over the remaining two strands towards
the left, until the yellow working strand has reached the middle. Make two backward
knots with the middle yellow strands to connect the two halves. Our first normal row is finished.
We need to make another row in exactly the same way. Since now our outermost strands
are red, we will get a red chevron row instead of a yellow. Make two forward knots over each
of the three strands of the left set, until the working strand reaches the middle. Now
go to the right set of strands. Take the outermost strand and make two backward knots over each
of the three strands, until the outermost working strand reaches the middle. Make two
final backward knots with the two middle strands to connect the two halves. Now we’ve finished
the second normal row. It’s time for the first special row. Again
start on the left side. Take the second outermost strand, mine is red and make a backward knot
over the outermost strand, which is yellow in my case. Knot twice and leave the red strand
on the left. Take the second outermost strand, which is now yellow and make forward knots
over the remaining two strands of the left set, until the yellow strand reaches the middle.
Now go to the right set of strands. Take the second outermost strand, mine is red and make
a forward knot over the outermost strand, which is yellow in my case. Knot twice and
leave the red strand on the right. Take the second outermost strand, which is now yellow
and make backward knots over the remaining two strands of the right set, until the yellow
strand reaches the middle. Make two final backward knots with the two yellow middle
strands to connect the two halves. We have finished our first special row.
Now it’s time for the second special row, so let’s repeat the steps. Start on the left.
Take the second outermost strand, and make a backward knot over the outermost strand.
Knot twice. Take the second outermost strand and make forward knots over the remaining
two strands until the second outermost strand reaches the middle. Now go to the right set
of strands. Take the second outermost strand and make a forward knot over the outermost
strand. Knot twice. Take the second outermost strand and make backward knots over the remaining
two strands of the right set, until it reaches the middle. Make two final backward knots
with the two red middle strands to connect the two halves. And we’ve finished our second
special row. As you can see the two special rows represent
the upper half of the heart, now we need to again make a normal row to finish the heart.
So take the outermost strand and make forward knots over the three strands of the left set
until it reaches the middle. Now take the outermost strand on the right and make backward
knots over the three strands of the right set until it reaches the middle. Connect the
two halves by making backward knots with the middle yellow strands. Next make a second
normal row, then two special rows again and so on. So just keep repeating two normal and
two special rows until your bracelet is long enough to fit your wrist.
I loved making friendship bracelets when I was younger, but back then I only knew how
to make the standard diagonal lines pattern. I was so happy when I learned how to make
this heart one. It is actually super easy to make and it takes only about three hours
to finish it. When the bracelet is long enough make a simple
knot at the end to secure your work. Now I’ll show you how to make a button closure, which
allows taking the bracelet on and off your wrist easily, without damaging it. Choose
one strand of embroidery floss and thread the button on like so. Make two to three knots
to secure the button as close to the ending of the bracelet as possible. Cut the excess
thread and you’re finished. Now you have this lovely closure to your bracelet that isn’t
just extremely practical but also super-duper adorable. Whether it’s a gift to yourself
or someone you love it always feels nice to create something useful and beautiful from
scratch. You can wear your heart friendship bracelets on their own or you can stack on
some other pieces that you have. Here I combined mine with some gold bracelets and I think
they look amazing together. This was already my fourth bracelet DIY. No Way! Yeah Way!
Check the previous ones out if you haven’t already. Stay happy and see you next time!
I really hope you’ll make this bracelet yourself, it’s so simple once you get the hang of it…
so happy knotting.

  29. Mackenna Donahue August 7, 2019 at 1:54 pm

    by the way if anyone was wondering, when you connect the two sides in the middle, the backward knot isn’t necessary. you could also do a forward one. i’ve seen some questions just wanted to clear everything up.

  30. Aaliya Ahamed August 7, 2019 at 10:50 pm

    only THREE HOURS?!

  31. Naome Ortiz August 8, 2019 at 4:00 am

    4:23 for when you are starting a heart

  32. Gabrielle Baar August 9, 2019 at 12:01 am

    50 INCHES IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THE COLOR OF THE HEART. I ran out close to the size I would have liked it. So it was close, but surly wasn’t enough.

  33. Meg PigKitty August 11, 2019 at 1:54 am

    HINT: YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO TIE YOUR BRACELET TO THE WRIST OF YOUR FRIEND, STRING-BY-STRING UNTIL IT IS TIED AND SEAMLESS. TIE THE KNOTS TIGHT AND WET WITH WATER. CUT EXCESS THREAD WITH A RAZOR. SEAMLESS.
    A FRIENDSHIP BRACELET IS INESCAPABLE AND MEANT TO BE WORN OFF – IT CANNOT BE TAKEN OFF THE WRIST BECAUSE THE HAND IS TOO BIG.
    THIS IS THE PART YOU'RE NEVER TOLD BECAUSE IT WAS PART OF THE OLD WAYS.
    KEEP ME ON TOP BY THUMBS UP FOR ALL TO READ. THANKS.
