old school style: diy friendship bracelets


When I was a little girl, I would spend hours upon hours making multicolored friendship bracelets for myself, my friends, and anyone else who wanted them.  I would layer them all over my wrists and ankles, and thought they were pretty much the coolest thing ever.  When they popped up again wrapped around the wrists of prominent fashionistas, I was immediately reminded of my childhood, and set out to make some right away.  
Now that I'm older, and obviously have a better sense of what hues look good together, searching for new color combinations is so fun; I'm especially into neon brights paired with cool neutrals and Missoni inspired palettes right now.   They're also super easy to make, and absolutely perfect for Summer.  As an added bonus, if you're like me and love to rock a few accessories with your swim wear, you certainly don't have to worry about these guys getting wet or loosing them in the ocean.  Now, I'm off to the store to get some supplies.. Happy crafting!

These friendship bracelets were so cool in my childhood! The ultimate sign of being liked. And you could wear them with everything and never take the off :D Paired with some golden bracelets they almost look like something made for adults.
