Today I am sharing how we made these easy fabric bracelets. They really turned out great! (We made so many, we’ve been giving them away to our friends too.)
We’ve been fairly busy so far this summer, I can’t believe June is nearly over. I never even had a chance to talk about the activity schedule I’ve set up for my little guys this year. It’s pretty much the same as what I’ve done in years past, (we are still using our jars) we’ve just switched up the days a bit due to twice a week swim lessons and a Thursday reading program we joined.
Our daily routine includes chores, workbooks, computer time, time in the kitchen and lots of swimming, reading and crafts. (I linked to the workbooks I bought- love these! I had seen them on Zulily, but bought them from Amazon for a dollar or two more so I could get them asap. They come in all skill levels, so check them out if you are in the market for new workbooks.)
One of our favorite crafts so far has been these little bracelets (my son enjoyed making these too). I just love how they came out and they really were easy to make- totally frustration free! I have used this tubing in a couple of bracelet crafts now, it really works great for this type of project. (Remember my Duck Tape Neon Bangles?)
Keep going until the tube is completely covered. One bandana strip (22 inches) will cover a small child’s size bracelet. If you run out of fabric, just use a little glue and add another strip. (try to wrap a little extra around the start of the new fabric to cover any seams.) If you are crafting with a very young child, you may need to help them to keep the fabric tight as they wrap.
