How to make toddler bracelets.

 My little girls have been obsessed with bracelets since I made them a few weeks ago to match these dresses. I love the larger beads for them, but the larger beads are kinda pricey. So I was so excited when I found two adult necklaces at the thrift store the other day for some insanely cheap amount. Here are the necklaces I found. Aren’t those colors great? And just so you know, when finding necklaces to up-cycle make sure the beads have holes all the way through them and are not the type of necklace where the beads are attached to one another with sting. Unfortunately those types of necklaces won’t work for these types of bracelets.Besides the necklaces you will need some elastic cords. I bought this type at Walmart, but most craft stores carry it. Cut the necklaces apart to get the beads off. Make sure you place your beads into a bowl or you are going to have a big mess, especially if the kiddo’s are helping you.Now comes the fun part…making the bracelets. Cut a piece of string a few inches larger then the measurement of your childs wrist. Start stringing your beads onto the elastic. Make a pattern with the beads or just go crazy with them. Once you have enough beads on the elastic just recheck t size to your childs wrist before tying a knot. If it fits, tie a few knots at the end of the elastic cording. Pull it tight so that none of the elastic is showing. And that is it. Super easy right?   They spend hours playing (and fighting) over these beads. I love the elastic cording so they can play with them without help. And really, I think they spend more time taking them off and on them wearing them.My littlest even discovered that they could be worn as anklets and make a great sound when paired with play high heeled shoes.

This is such a great, cheap and easy project to do with the kiddo’s. Just keep your eyes open for cheap beads, I know I am.
