Using pink beads for breast cancer awareness, like we did, recapture the look of adorably sweet candy bracelets by using all kinds of pretty beads! Get the group together and make plenty to show your support, or donate a bunch of them to your favorite charity bazaar...a great group project to use up all your odds and ends!
For each bracelet you will need
assortment of beads (any shapes; the more the better)
clear nail polish
scissors, tape measure
Cut a length of stretchy cord twice the circumference of wrist plus 6 inches (for tying). Fold the cord in half and tie a knot large enough to hold the first bead. String beads on cord in random or sequential order, as desired, until there are enough beads to go around wrist with a little stretch. When bracelet reaches the desired length, bring the knotted end up to the closed end and tie a double knot (to form a circle). Carefully add a drop of clear nail polish, painting over knot, and allow to dry. Trim ends leaving a 1/4-inch tail. Add another drop of nail polish, as before, and allow to dry.
*Since most of the supplies for this project come in bulk, this is and excellent party craft and easy to teach to a group!
