A few weeks ago I shared my friendship bracelet tutorial showing you how to make basic friendship bracelets. Today I am sharing some Olympic inspired colour combinations that are perfect for showing your support for London 2012 or your county's athletes!
1. Great Britain
I used two strands of each colour to get this extra thick stripe
Colours - red, blue and white
2. Great Britain Team Kit
This kit was released a couple of weeks ago and there was a lot of criticism in the media that it was too blue - I quite like it and the colours look great round my wrist!
Colours - navy blue, white blue, turquoise, white
3. Usain Bolt
My favourite sprinter and the athlete I will be supporting in the 100m final!
I usually finish my bracelets off with a plait - I think it makes it look neater and is useful for tying round your wrist!
Colours - black, green, yellow
4. London 2012 Mascots - Wenlock and Mandeville
This bracelet is made as two, one for each mascot and then tied together.
Bracelet one - one thread each white and orange
Bracelet two - one thread each white and blue
Make the bracelets the same size and then tie the ends together to create one paired bracelet
5. Olympic Rings - the universal symbol of the Olympics!
Colours - black, blue, yellow, green, red
Have a great weekend!
