An elementary school in Texas, United States, broke the Guinness World Record after its students spent four months assembling the world's longest friendship bracelet, UPI reported.

The students at Valley Creek Elementary School began working on the woven ribbon bracelet on November 7 and completed the 2,795-foot, 9-inch bracelet on March 3, the McKinney Independent School District said.

"The colors chosen for the ribbons reflected the school colors for Faubion Middle School and McKinney High School, where most Valley Creek students will likely attend," the media outlet reported.

The bracelet was laid out on the school district's football field and measured by a crew from Underwood Drafting and Surveying.

"It was found to have officially broken the Guinness World Record of 2,166 feet and 11 inches."

The record was broken on April 28.
