Happiness Bracelets

happiness620

Have you ever felt like sharing the happy? Here is a wonderful way to do that! Help the kiddos string these colorful beaded bracelets using uplifting word beads. Make a batch and then give them away to nice people you come across throughout the day!

What you’ll need
Stretch cording
Assorted small beads
Word or letter beads
Scissors
Helpful Tip:
Before stringing the beads, give the cord a good stretch. Make sure to use the right width of cording to match the size of the holes in the beads.
Variations:
Instead of just one word per bracelet, use letter beads to create short statements, use a solid color bead between each word.
1. Cut a piece of stretch cord to about 10″ long. Choose your favorite beads and words for your bracelet.
2. Tie a knot at one end, so the beads won’t slide off as you string them. Add the beads, then add a word beads, or letter beads. A good length is about 3-4″.
3. Once you have all the beads on, slide all of them to the center and carefully pull the ends of the cord together and loop them, then tie in a tight knot. Pull the strands tight, then tie a second knot. Snip away excess cord.
4. Now make more bracelets in different colors and themes to give away to friends!

NOTE: This project is for kids old enough to know not to put beads in their mouth or anywhere else…

Love & light,
