Friendship connect

Pandemic living means we've gotta be creative - so why not go back to an ancient way of showing someone they matter to you? Exactly when friendship bracelets date from is debated, but there's evidence of knot tying in a similar way in China hundreds of years BC. Tradition says you give one to a true friend, and when you give it to them you make a wish (or you can say a prayer) - and that becomes linked to the bracelet. They wear it until it wears out - which signifies the strength and value of the friendship.

AND - the best bit is, this also gives you something to do if you are stuck in the house missing someone - why not make one of these for them and you can think about them or even say some prayers for them whilst you're doing it - making it extra special!

Here's your step by step guide to making friendship bracelets: ⏬
