  • DIY ribbon bracelet

Here's a detailed tutorial on how to weave a ribbon bracelet:

  • Cut four ribbons of equal length. Gather one end of the ribbons, tie a knot, and secure it to a table.
  • Take the leftmost ribbon and wrap it around the middle two ribbons, threading it through their center. As you weave, tighten the ribbon to maintain a cylindrical shape for the bracelet.
  • Take the rightmost ribbon and wrap it around the middle two ribbons. At this point, you'll have four strands in front of you, with the upper part of the middle two slightly twisted together. Take the rightmost ribbon from below the middle two, wrap it around, and then thread it through their center. You'll need to hold the weaving ribbon with your dominant hand and steady the middle two ribbons with your other hand.
  • Continue weaving the bracelet with the leftmost and rightmost ribbons. To maintain a cylindrical shape, continuously wrap the outermost ribbon from below the middle two, thread it through their center, and tighten. Stop when there's about 3cm of ribbon left.
  • When you're running out of ribbon, tie a knot at the end, leaving at least 3cm from the end. Then, wrap the bracelet around your wrist. Remove the tape securing one end. Wrap the woven bracelet around your wrist. Twist the ends of the bracelet together and tie a knot to prevent it from coming undone.
