Valentine Friendship Bracelet

January 9, 2017

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. 

materials

Materials:

  • Heart shaped paper clip
  • beads
  • ribbon
  • scissors
  • matches

Instructions:

Cut the ribbon into two pieces that when folded is long enough to wrap around your wrist with a bit extra. 

thread ribbon

Thread each ribbon through the sides of the paper clip heart.

 

sides

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)

 

ends

burning ends

**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.

 

finished

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)

This project is a part of Valentine's Day Craft Lightning. Several times a year 30 Minute Crafts team up with other crafty bloggers to share themed crafts that can be done in 15 minutes or less! These are called “Craft Lightning”.
