How To Make Popsicle Stick Bracelets!
Difficulty Level: Easy
These are simple, cute, and good to make for young kids to decorate! All you'll need are popsicle sticks, cups, and whatever decorating things (markers, stickers, paper, fabric scraps, yarn, etc.) you want to use.
Begin by bringing a pot of water to a boil on the stove, then remove it from the flame. Place the popsicle sticks in the hot water and let them soak for an hour or two, adding more boiling water every half hour. Soon, they should be bendy and pliable. One by one, gently bend the popsicle sticks onto a curved shape and let them rest in the mouth of the glass. Remember that they need to be the right size to comfortably fit around your wrist. Let them dry for about 24 hours, then pop them out. Now it's time to decorate! In the picture, we glued on patterned paper, but that's only ONE of the many different styles you can make! Have fun!
