Supplies:

  • 3/8-inch plastic tubing
  • 1/4-inch plastic tubing
  • Glitter
  • Heavy duty adhesive
  • Scissors
  • Glitter funnel
  • Tape

Directions:

1. Cut the bracelet

Glitter bracelet step 1

Cut the bracelet to size to fit your child's wrist. You will want it to be big enough to slide over her hand easily, but not so big that it falls right off.

2. Cut the small tubing

Glitter bracelet step 2

Cut a tiny piece of the small tubing, approximately 1-inch long.

3. Glue the tube

Glitter bracelets step 3

Put a dab of glue in one end of the large tubing. Slide the small tubing into the large tubing and let it sit for about 20 minutes so the glue can set.

4. Add the glitter

Glitter bracelet step 4

Use a glitter funnel (who knew there was such a thing as a glitter funnel?) to fill the tube with the glitter. You want to leave some space inside the tube for the glitter to move around.

5. Glue it together

Glue the small tube into the other end of the bracelet. Use a small piece of tape to hold the bracelet together while the glue sets.

6. Let it set
