Step 1
NOTE: As alternates, you may also use the bamboo cord set in Sherbet (210878) or the Vintage hemp cord set.
 
Cut three 18" pieces of cord. Tie an overhand knot 3" down.
Step 2
Braid the cords for 3". 
Step 3
Bring the left cord to the middle and add a seed bead. Bring the right cord over the middle cord (as you would when normally braiding). 
Step 4
Repeat Step 3 four more times so that there are five seed beads on the bracelet in total. 
Step 5
Braid for 3" and tie an overhand knot. 
Step 6
Tie bracelet on wrist and make a wish! As the bracelet wears and the beads fall out, your wish will come true!
