D.i.y Friendship pencils

Friends rule & so do threaded bracelets. I use to rock em all the time, but they were so restricting. If I had to dress up I'd have to take them with me. So I figured adding some colorful embroidery thread would give me that summery feel with out that bracelet tan. Not only that but how sweet would these be to gift? An alternative to giving out those time consuming bracelets. 


#1. Set of pencils
#2. Craft thread / embroidery
#3. Scissors 
#4. 10 minutes of your time

Step one: Choose 3 or four colors

Step two: Create a loop and slide onto the pencil. Next with the thread attached to the rest of the bunch, create the same loop and pull up to tighten (loop it under and back through the opening). Repeat until desired length.

Step three: Grab your next color of choice and begin of with the same starter knot. Then follow step twos loop sequence creating 5 knots.

Step four: Cut off the string from your first thread, and second (orange and magenta). Continue loop knotting with your second thread (magenta) until both cut strings are covered. Do steps 3-4 for each color of thread you add.

Step five: When ending your friendship pencil make a tight knot as close to the pencil as possible. Then create another one to secure it. Cut the thread & done!

Mix up your colors the more the better! Now you can have summer camp in your hands!
Also you could slide your design down and use it a finger grip! However I like it better as a topper.
