Halloween Friendship Bracelet
I have four tween-teen age sons. One of them is a very preppy boy. He lives in Nike short shorts and Vineyard Vines t-shirts. This child has also decided he needs a Hydro-Flask and he has started making the staple VSCO Boy friendship bracelets. He even asked if I would take him to Michaels recently to pick up embroidery thread and beads.
If you decide to make a purchase through my links, I will be paid a small commission for it. This doesn’t cost you anything additional.
Make a VSCO braided bracelet
It’s really easy to make thread bracelets. But, if you are like me, it feels like it’s been a million years since you braided one for your BFF. So, to refresh your memory, and help you blow your kids’ minds, the boy and I shot a step by step tutorial to make your own glow in the dark Halloween Friendship Bracelet.
String Bracelet Supplies
Embroidery Thread – we used black and orange
Clipboard or Tape
Optional – Glow in the Dark Pony Beads and Letter Beads
Cut two pieces of embroidery thread to 54″. You may need more or less depending on the size of your VSCO Girl/Boy.
Fold them in half.
Tie a knot at the fold, leaving a little loop. Clip it to the clipboard or tape to the counter.
Separate the colors. You will have two of each color.
Take two strands of the same color and make a “4” over the other two strands. Loop and tie into a tight knot.
Repeat with the second colored embroidery threads in the opposite direction. (Make a “P”)
Repeat steps 5-6 until you are happy with the length. Tie a knot with all four strands of thread.
Thread embroidery thread through the pony bead and tie in place.
Repeat steps 5-6, and 8.
Thread all four embroidery threads through the letter beads. You may need a needle.
Thread embroidery thread through more pony beads and tie in place.
Repeat steps 5-6 until the bracelet is even and tie off in a knot.
