When I was younger I loved making friendship bracelets. Most summers my arms (and ankles) were covered with them. I usually tied them on, and they were there until they were cut off. I still enjoy making them, but wanted to make them removable.
I ended up using ribbon clamps with a bit of E6000, and a lobster claw clasp. I had so much fun making these two, that I may end up with an arm of them again.
