Today I am going to be teaching you how to make a cotton bracelet.

  1. First thing you need is to get a raw piece of cotton which you can find online.
  2. Then you will need to grab something heavy I used a folder from my backpack.
  3. The you will need to grab a something to clamp on to the wool and it needs to be able to twist around so it can create string.
  4. Take the wool and spread it out evenly and don’t rip it because they it won’t reconnect and make sure their are no lumps so it will look better.
  5. Put on side of the wool under the folder and the other side in the clamp and pull but not to hard because it will rip.
  6. Then start twisting the clamp until the cotton is nice and tight.
  7. When you finish you will need something to hold the ends you can use a rubber band to hold it.
  8. Then you need to tie the ends and then you are done.
