Make a fun and quick bracelet for Valentine's Day to wear or gift to a special friend. This project is great for kids but will need a little assistance from parents. You can change the colors of each part or keep it all one color as in the example above.
- Heart shaped paper clip
Cut the ribbon into two pieces that when folded is long enough to wrap around your wrist with a bit extra.
Thread each ribbon through the sides of the paper clip heart.
Thread the bead onto one strand of the ribbon on each side. (sampled on the right side above) If your bead is large enough to take both ribbons, do so. Ours only would take one ribbon. Then tie a simple knot using both ribbons on each side. (sampled on left side above)
Unfinished ends of the ribbon
**An Adult needs to do this step.**
If the ends of the ribbon will fray, you can stop that from happening if you singe the ends or seal the ends with heat from a match or candle. Do no actually light the ribbon on fire.
It's ready to wear or give as a gift. Wrap it around your wrist and tie a double knot.
I found the heart shaped paper clips at our local Office Depot. You can also find them online at Amazon. (affiliate link)
