How to Make Hemp Wish Bracelets
- Hemp string (#20 used for this one)
- 7 seed beads (you will want to use the medium or large ones, not the super tiny ones)
Cut 3 lengths of 15” inch strands of hemp twine.
Remember, you can always make the bracelet bigger or smaller by adjusting how much cord you use. If you’re not sure what size to make your bracelet, you can always err on the side of making it too big rather than too small. You can always trim off any excess piece of hemp later.
Once you have your cord cut to size, go ahead and seal the ends with a lighter or matches. This will prevent the cord from fraying.
Gather the ends of the 3 cords together, and make a double knot, leaving about 2-3 inches of cord at the end.
Braid the 3 cords together, for about 2.5 inches.
Add a bead to the cord on the right, then bring it over the middle cord. Bring the left cord over, under the bead.
Repeat this step above until all seven beads have been added.
How to Tie a Hemp Bracelet at the End
Continue braiding for another 2.5 inches, then add a double knot at the end.
When you’re happy with the fit of your bracelet, trim off any excess cord.
To finish off your bracelet and make sure that the knots are secure, you can either tie them off with a second knot or use a lighter to carefully melt the ends of the cord so that they fuse together.
