Oh the things you can do without glue
Easy and totally adorable.

Patience is key. I did the first couple of steps like 5o times cause I didn't think I was doing it right.

  • How to make a braided ribbon bracelet. Ribbon Bracelet - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut a length of ribbon 70 inches long. Add a little tape or fray check to the ends, just in case.

    For my first bracelet I used black ribbon 1/4" wide. This pink ribbon is 3/8" wide

    If you use any wide of ribbon you may have to have a longer piece, it's logical thinking, but I haven't tried it yet.

    Double up your length of ribbon and make a loop like this.

    Slip it through the first loop you made.

    Step 5

    Pull on the right ribbon and the back ribbon of the new loop you just made alternately to make sure that your ends stay even-ish. It doesn't have to be perfect.

    The most important thing is that the ribbon is snug without pinching it and that there aren't any twists in it.

    Take the right side, fold it over and slip it into the loop, just like before.

    pull that loop through as much as you can without bunching anything up.

    Then pull the left side ribbon that's hanging down until its snug around you're new loop.

    Repeat 3-7 till you run outta ribbon, or until its the right length to go around your wrist with 1/2 to 1 inch overlap.

    This is also what happens when you're in a hurry and you pull things too tight, see how in the middle it looks bunchy...Yeah it shouldn't be like that.

    Put the little short end through the loop and tighten it up around it.

    Hopefully your tails are long enough

    Step 10

    Take the other side (it should be longer than the other side) wrap it around and tuck it in the back.

    This is the back view by the way.

    Or you can just pin it in place too...
    Dab of glue maybe? Doesn't really matter.

    Size it up and decide where the snaps need to go and sew 'em on.

    Clip off the remaining ribbon ends, or remove the tape. or whatever keeps it looking pretty in the front.
