Directions to Make Paper Friendship Bracelets

Step 1 – DIY BFF Bracelets

The first step to make this adorable best friend craft is to download & print the BFF bracelet template (grab our pinwheel template here) on regular size paper.

  • Print one copy of the paper bracelet template to make this bff craft for:  and make it for 2 best friends, 3 best friends or 4 best friends.
  • Print 2 copies or more if you want 5 or more friends to make this cute friends craft.

Step 2 – DIY BFF Bracelets

BFF Bracelets Printable step 2 - decorating the paper bracelets
We loved to use water color paints to decorate our paper BFF bracelets!

Grab your crayons, colored pencils, paint or glitter to decorate the printed BFF bracelet designs on the printed template.  You can also add your own sparkly gems or sequins for more bling.

These are really fun bracelet coloring pages that we hope inspire you to go beyond just crayons. We used water color paint to color this example, glitter glue would look amazing too!

Step 3 – DIY BFF Bracelets

Cut out all the little paper bracelet designs and embellishments.  Collect all the embellishments you want for your specific friendship bracelet.

Step 4 – DIY BFF Bracelets

Glue the embellishments onto the paper friendship band.  I chose a flower, swirl and heart along with a fun BFF badge for my friendship bracelet design.

Optional Step 5 – DIY BFF Bracelets

Laminate the finished friendship bracelets if you want to wear them for an extended period of time.

Step 6 – DIY BFF Bracelets

To finish the bracelets, we used mini self-stick velcro dots at the ends of each bracelet band. That allowed the girls to take the bracelets on and off easily.

If you do not have Velcro dots, then secure each paper bracelet with glue or tape for a one-time use.
