Supplies: Three different colors of hemp rope, 5 small beads

Steps:

  1. Make sure all your strands are even and tie a knot at one end of your strings. 
  2. Use tape to secure your thread to a table. This will make it easier to braid the strands. 
  3. Braid the three strands together until you have about 3 inches of braid. 
  4. Place the first bead on the right hand strand and pull strand over center strand. 
  5. Take the left strand and pull over the center strand. 
  6. Put another bead on the  strand to the right and repeat the process until finished.
  7. Once all your beads are added, continue to braid for another three inches. 
  8. Knot once you reach the end and tie your bracelet to your wrist!
