Are you a last-minute Christmas shopper? I know some people make it a point to have their gifts purchased by December 1st, but I’ve never been that type of person. BUT, if it comes to making gifts, count me in! And this is one that would be an awesome TV project/curled up cozied up by the fire.
If you need a last-minute gift idea for your best pal, mom, or sister, this post is for you. Today we’re sharing how to make Christmas Friendship Bracelets. You might recognize this tutorial because we’ve done a couple like it in the past (including cute printables!).
We’re including five different patterns you can make with your family, all Christmas/holiday-themed that would be great to give out to friends or neighbors. We chose some that are a bit more complicated (and awesome!) and some that are a bit more simple (and still awesome!). They come complete with videos since they’re a little bit easier to understand than photos.

Reading patterns to me is like reading greek. Where do I start? What am I looking at? Some of the patterns we referred to for the more complicated designs like the candy cane, trees, and poinsettias, were from other sites and I needed a bit of deciphering before I could really dig in. To help me out, our intern, Calee, made this video explaining how to read a pattern. I hope it helps you too!
