Jess here from AllFreeKidsCrafts, wishing you a Happy Best Friends Day today! In honor of this momentous occasion, AllFreeKidCrafts is going crazy for best buddy gifts, and we’re getting “knotty” with some exciting friendship bracelets for girls and boys to make!
Did you ever make friendship bracelets at camp, or just with best friends over the summer? I remember I used to make and exchange them with my Girl Scout troop when we would go on trips to entertain ourselves during the long bus ride. There was always something so calming about the process of weaving the strands together once we had learned how to make friendship bracelets in all sizes, shapes and colors, and I loved exchanging them with my talented pals! Check out the designs below for some exciting friendship bracelet ideas to celebrate Best Friends Day!
Tell us in the comments below which one is your favorite, and we’ll feature that project tutorial on our Facebook page!
These Classic Friendship Bracelets are camp craft favorites that are great for boys and girls, from elementary school to adulthood. Preteens and teens in particular will think these are so cool.
Do you have some creative little gents who want to celebrate Best Friends Day too? Try out these “mancelets” for the little guys! Even tough guys will still look dashing in this Leather Wrapped Friendship Bracelet or a Square Knot Hexnut Bracelet.
Shake things up with some innovative and unique friendship bracelet designs like these Bead Wrapped Leather Bracelets, Hidden Kisses Leather Bracelets, and Spiral Wingnut Bracelets for boys and girls.
