Make It Monday: Wooden Bracelets

I was inspired to make these sweet little bracelets after stumbling across a similar project on Suzy's Artsy-Craftsy Sitcom. Her designs used a wide Popsicle stick and showcased her intricate artwork abilities.

What you'll need:

Wooden coffee stir sticks
Drinking glass or other cylinder - in your desired size
Acrylic paint or markers


Step 1. Simmer stir sticks in a large skillet of boiling water for 30 minutes. Allow to cool to touch.

Step 2. Curve stir stick into a drinking glass or other cylinder. Note: to make the kids bracelets I used an empty paper towel tube.

Step 3. Place the glass or tube in the sun, allow to dry completely before removing.

Alternate Step 3. If you're impatient like me you can bake the glass in a 200 degree F oven for about 30 minutes until dry. Make sure you use an oven safe glass if you do it this way. A shot glass may be an alternative if you want to make small bracelets.

Step 4. Be creative and decorate to your hearts content with acrylic paint or markers or whatever medium you decide. Be aware that if you coat the entire bracelet in paint it may soak into the wood and cause it to release it's shape slightly. If you plan on coating it completely it may be a good idea to make your bracelet smaller than you want it.

I made matching bracelets for the girls.

Sophie also got a ladybug bracelet at her request. The little girl can't seem to get ladybugs off her mind since her birthday party.

Happy Monday!
