The single letters printed on white letter beads of a WWJD bracelet stand for "What would Jesus do?" The acronym WWJD is worn by Christians as a symbol and reminder of their faith. Many Christians strive to be good people, and by wearing the reminder, they can ask themselves that very question when they encounter hard situations. Make your own WWJD bracelet to wear as a reminder so you will always do the right thing and help people out.
Cut two 2-feet-long pieces of each of the three colours of embroidery floss. Line the ends of the floss strands up. Hold them together in a bunch and tie them together in a simple a knot 3 inches down from the ends. Hold the floss strand ends together. Slide an E bead onto the whole bunch of floss strands. Tie a knot directly beneath the bead with the bunched-together strands to hold it in place.
Separate the floss strands into three bunches of two same coloured strands. Braid the floss bunches together into a simple 2-inch long braid. Hold the floss together in a bunch. Tie the bunched floss together into a simple overhand knot. Hold the floss in one hand and twirl the strands together with your fingers.
String a mini pony bead onto the twirled bunch of floss strands. Slide the bead down to rest on the knot. String on a W bead onto the twirled bunch of strands and slide it down to rest against the mini pony bead. String on a mini pony bead and slide it down to rest on the W bead. String on the next W bead and slide it down to rest against the mini pony bead. String on a mini pony bead and a J bead and slide them down to the other beads. String on a mini pony bead and a D bead. Slide on another mini pony bead.
Tie the floss together in another simple overhand knot after the last mini pony bead. Separate the floss into three bunches of two matching pieces of floss and braid them together in a 2-inch-long braid. Hold the floss together in a bunch. Tie the bunched floss together in a simple overhand knot. String on an E bead, slide it down to the knot and make another overhand knot.
