Make A Beaded Bangle Bracelet
Learn to make a Beaded Bangle Bracelet. It’s time to take those old bangle bracelets out of the draw and update them with a few beads and yarn. The kids will love to make and wear these “new” found treasures.
Beads on a String
Hot Glue Gun
Because of the hot glue gun, this craft needs some assistance from an adult if younger children are involved.
Put a line of glue around the outside of the bangle bracelet and then lay down the string of beads, cutting off the excess once you have a complete circle of beads.
Do not separate the embroidery floss strands. Wrap it around the bracelet between two beads and tie off in a knot.
Continue to wrap the floss between the beads all the way around the bracelet and tie off when you reach the beginning. It's that simple.
If you have two different sizes of bracelets you can adapt the instructions to incorporate the smaller bracelet using the picture of the yellow bracelet as a reference.
