2 Minute Friendship Bracelet

Need a super simple idea for your next fundraising event? Want a quick gift to throw in the party bags for the kids at your little one's next sleepover? Or maybe you're ready to dive into the the cute woven bracelet trend seen here, here, here, here, and here?

Well, try this on for size:

Yep, you read that right. Two minutes. MAX.

  • Various colors of embroidery thread, yarn, twine, hemp, etc (think school colors, favorite colors, party color scheme, or anything else you can dream up)
  • Appropriate sized crochet hook for your threads (I used an H)
  • Beads (optional)

Are you ready for the easiest directions ever?
Get your threads together and crochet a chain. Voila you're done!

1. Choose your threads (2 to 5) in an assortment of colors and gather each in an equal length as so:

2. Starting 3 inches in, crochet about 4 inches of chain stitches, then cut leaving another 3 inch tail:
Don't know how? Simple instructions here

3. Knot the tails on each side to make a pretty, finished end. This would be a great time to use some spare beads [I just didn't have any :(]:

And there you have it. In two minutes flat and less than $0.25 a piece, you have an adorable accessory for you or your little princess / tween queen. You can jazz them up with metallic threads, or glass beads (added similarly to the buttons on this) and they'll look even better. These are perfect for a fundraiser/pep rally because you can make a ton of them in no time at all and in the colors of your choice. Plus, if you consider selling them at even at a minimal price of $.50-1.00, you're profit margin is going to be insane!
