Craft Stick Bracelets for your BFFs

This week EC has headed off to sleep away camp with some of his cousins. This means I only have YC, BB and one of their cousins. To take full advantage of this quiet week we are filling it with lots of fun crafts, kind of like our own craft camp. First on the agenda were these craft stick bracelets.

Make sure you follow my craft board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • Jumbo craft sticks
  • Saucepan
  • Glasses
  • Things to decorate them with – washi tape/paint/sequins/ribbons
  • Glue

These craft stick bracelets to take a while to set up. Well setting them up is easy; they just have a long drying time.

Place your jumbo craft sticks into a saucepan of boiling water and boil for 30 minutes. I highly recommend making more than you actually need. That way if any split you have extras.

Take them off the heat and one by one fit them into the inside of a glass. I bend them slightly before I put them in the glass. Leave the others in the water while you are doing this. Now leave them to dry in a warm place like an airing cupboard. I actually made them after they had gone to bed so that they would dry over night and be ready to decorate first thing in the morning.

Even then some of them weren’t quite ready by morning. I finished them off by putting them on top of the aga.

When they are finally ready it is time to start decorating. I set out a massive selection of stuff for YC and her cousin to use. 90 minutes later and they were still going. They even put string and tape across the opening to prevent them from falling off their arms.

All in all it was a sweet craft to do. I even made some that were themed around Mickey Mouse in honour of his 90th birthday which will be happening on 18th November.

If you enjoyed making these craft stick bracelets be sure to check out these friendship bracelets, love rocks and craft stick harmonicas.
