Step 1

Cut off a similar length and color piece of string as the broken one in the friendship bracelet.

Step 2

Tie a double knot with the new piece of string and the broken end of the old one. Pull the two pieces apart to tighten the knot enough so it will be secure. This will also make the knot smaller.

Step 3

Apply glue or clear fingernail polish to the frayed edges of the broken string to keep it from further unraveling.

Step 4

Continue threading the friendship bracelet as normal, making sure not to apply too much tension to the string so the knot does not come undone.
