Ways to secure string bracelets while you’re making them.
To get really good results, you want to make sure that the bracelet is secure while you’re creating the knots. Here are a few ideas for securing your thread.
- Use a binder clip to secure it to a flat surface.
- Place a pillow on your lap and safety pin the floss to the pillow.
- Clip the string onto a clipboard.
- Use masking tape to secure it to your work surface.
Knots used in this daisy chain bracelet
To create this bracelet you should be familiar with several basic knots.
- forward knot
- backward forward knot
- forward-backward knot
- square knot
If you are not comfortable with these techniques, head over to our basic friendship bracelet knots tutorials.
- 2 strands - Yellow Embroidery Thread - A few inches longer than around your wrist
- 2 strands - Green Embroidery Thread - Double the length of your yellow
- 4 strands - Pink Embroidery Thread - Same length as the green
- Binder Clip
- Gather all the strands of thread and tie a knot at one end. Clip the knotted end to a flat surface. Begin with creating a square knot with the green string around the pink and yellow strings.
- Add multiple green square knots before starting the first flower. How many you make is up to you!
- To start the flower pull the green strings into the middle, with the yellow. Start a square knot with the pink. You will be holding 2 pink strings at a time. Make sure to get it nice and snug under the green square knot.
- Create the second half of the square knot. This is the top of your flower.
- Next, pull the right green string off to the side. Using 2 of the pink strings together create a 1/2 backward knot. Pull tight and slide up the green.
- Follow this with a 1/2 forward knot on the same string. This completes a backward forward knot and the flower petal should be off to the right hand side.
- Create a second petal by repeating another backward forward knot.
- Next, move to the left hand side. You will create 2 forward backward knots to make 2 petals on the left. This is the same process as before. Except you will create a 1/2 forward knot followed by a 1/2 backward knot twice.
- Using the yellow strands create the center by completing a forward knot.
- To complete the flower create one final square knot with the pink strings. Around the green and yellow strings.
- Bring the green strings back around to the outside and start on your next section of green square knots.
- You can tighten the green square knots up under the flowers by pulling the rest of the strings side to side once you have a few knots down.
- You can also use your fingers to pinch and shape the flowers a bit if you need!
- Keep creating flowers and green until you are happy with the size of your bracelet. Tie off the end and you're done!
We are using two pink strands at a time. This makes the flower bigger.
