Shows have been sold out across the globe now for weeks, and honestly, we're not surprised. If you haven’t heard, friendship bracelet trading at Taylor Swift concerts is a thing. It’s really sweet and a great way to meet new people. If you are Swiftie, you know that this friendship bracelet thing does not come out of nowhere. It stems from a lyric in her song “You’re On Your Own Kid” of her latest album Midnights. So make the friendship bracelets Take the moment and taste it Thousands of Taylor Swift fans will arrive at Eras Tour venues and just to trade friendship bracelets. And with Taylor likely to be supporting her new beau Travis Kelce, the starting Tight End of the Kansas Chiefs, in the upcoming Super Bowl, we couldn't imagine a better reason to make a whole new set of bracelets. In case you didn't know, Travis Kelce shot his shot by giving Taylor a friendship bracelet with his phone number on it. And honestly, I swoon every time thinking about that! Making Friendship Bracelets So like many of you, having a party for the biggest football event of the year is a staple in any friend group. Most parties involve food, watching the big game and the half-time performance. But this year, why not take it up a notch and have a bracelet-making station? As a Swiftie, hanging out with my girls while we made bracelets for Taylor's tour was so much fun. Honestly, this would just give us an excuse to make it even more. Here are the items you will need to make your own Taylor Swift friendship bracelets. These have been tested out by me – and it took a couple of failures before I got the products to work together in the easiest way possible. For an adult, I have found that a 27-inch string is the perfect size, plus using 25 color beads and 5 alphabet beads. Bracelet Ideas Of course, we couldn't just push you out into the world without an idea of what to do. We put together a few fun bracelet ideas for you that you'll love! If you haven't seen this trend yet, then let us introduce you to the way some Swifties are making bracelets. Lots of us use shorthand letters to convey song lyrics. Because let's be honest, Taylor Swift is a lyrical mastermind (see what I did there?) and we can't include every single word on one bracelet. For example, one of my favorite songs by Taylor is "august" from "folklore". And one of my favorite lyrics is "August sipped away like a bottle of wine." So instead of a long bracelet with all those lyrics, I just made one that said "ASALABOW." The first letter of each word is a bead. Brilliant, right? Okay so here are some good ideas if you want some football-specific bracelets.
