Create a wish bracelet from hemp and beads, a project so simple even children can make one with little guidance. Remember to make a wish before you put your bracelet on. When your bracelet falls off by itself, your wish may come true.

  1. 1

    Cut 3 lengths of hemp, each 24-inches long. Line up the 3 pieces, and tie a knot in one end. Leave enough loose string so you can tie the bracelet when it is complete.

  2. 2

    Start with the string on the left side. Tie a knot around the second piece of string, and pull it up until it is snug against the top knot. Do the same with the outer string.

  3. 3

    Take the new string on the left side and repeat this process. Continue to make knots until the bracelet is one-third of the desired length.

  4. 4

    Slide a bead on the second string. Make a knot with the outer string on the second string. Slide the knot up to the bead. Make a knot on the outer string and pull it tight.

  5. 5

    Continue adding beads and repeat this process until you have added all the beads.

  6. 6

    Return to knotting the bracelet like you did in the beginning. Make knots until the bracelet is long enough.

  7. 7

    Tie a knot in all 3 strings at the end of the knots. Cut off the excess hemp, leaving enough length to tie on the bracelet.
