These bracelets are a cinch to make. From site Pura Vida, which donates proceeds of every sale to various causes, these friendship braids are bright, colorful, and good for the world! Make your own by using recycled blue jeans and old t-shirts, which is good for the earth in another way.
Simple, cute, and a great way to upcycle.
Plus, this is literally a two-step tutorial. What could be better?
Step 1: Gather materials. I used old blue jeans, and two old t-shirts; a tie-dye one and a plain grey one. I cut thin strips out of all three. You can use a combination of any old clothes you have, and can cut the strips as thin/wide as you want for different thicknesses of bracelets.
Tie them all together at the top, leaving room at the end to tie on your wrist. Tape the group down to your table.
Step 2: Braid. Knot the end when it's long enough to tie on your wrist. Cut two of the threads shorter and leave one longer; this is the strip you will use to knot around your wrist, as shown in the last picture. The knot would be too bulky if you tied all 3 strips together!
Tie on, and make some more for your friends!
