DIY: Neon Friendship Bracelets

Looking for a bright, bold and quick take on classic friendship bracelets? Maybe you need a little more colour in your daily life / wardrobe. Or perhaps you just love all things neon (I know I do!)

Dust off your friendship bracelet skills but forget the embroidery floss - reach for some neon mason twine. (Find it at the hardware store!) You'll be delighted at just how quickly these bracelets knot up.  And what could be better than knotting up classic friendship bracelets with a fresh twist?


Forgotten how? I'll admit, so had I! But making friendship bracelets seems to fall into that category of "it's just like riding a bicycle" and before you know it, your hands will be putting those hard-won summer camp bracelet-making skills to use!


Remember the basics but want to try new patterns? Check out this site, where you can browse thousands of patterns or search for a pattern using a specific number of strands or colours. 

Once you're back in the swing of things, I dare you to make just one! This is an addictively fun DIY (and a perfect one to do while bingewatching.) Stack them on and enjoy a burst of neon summer fun - no matter the season!

Just remember, since the twine is much thicker than floss, you'll want to use fewer strands. For my bracelets, each 4 strands of twine (2 strands folded) equaled 1cm (approx. 3/8") in bracelet width.

I'd love to know - what would you make with neon twine?
