Last week, students delved into the art of crafting spiral and candy cane stripe friendship bracelets.
After carefully selecting the necessary threads and following a step-by-step tutorial, we embarked on the bracelet-making journey. As we weaved the threads together, conversations flowed in English, accompanied by the joyful melodies of popular Taylor Swift songs. The end results were nothing short of magnificent, with each bracelet possessing its own unique charm.
According to folklore, attaching a friendship bracelet comes with a special ritual. In that moment, one should make a wish, and the bracelet should be worn until it naturally falls off, signifying the love invested in its creation. It is believed that when the bracelet finally bids farewell, the wish is granted.
In the modern era, crafting friendship bracelets doesn’t demand much. Here’s what we utilized:
- A variety of cotton embroidery floss and wool threads
- Sticky tape
- Charms, beads, and other trinkets for personalization
You don’t need to possess innate creativity or impeccable craftsmanship skills to fashion impressive friendship bracelets. The allure lies in the handmade process, where no two pieces ever mirror each other exactly.
