Craft Stick Bangle

Craft Stick Bangle

Who knew a craft stick could become a fashionable bracelet? I loved the way these came out. Being able to wear the kids' art around my wrist is pretty great!

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. craft sticks - large
  2. water
  3. pot
  4. acrylic paint
  5. paint brushes
  6. jar (about the size of a wrist)
  1. One evening, after I discovered this little trick, I added some large craft sticks to a pot of boiling water and let it boil for about 15 minutes.

  2. Once they were easy to bend, I knew they were ready. I slowly guided them into a jar that was about the size of a wrist. They sat overnight or until completely dry.

  3. Once dry, I popped them out of the jar and invited my kids over to paint away. They were thrilled and pretty excited that craft sticks could bend!

  4. They painted away and made some very colorful creations.

  5. We let them dry and then tried them on for size! Pretty cool if I do say so myself. My two-year old gave one to each of his preschool teachers and he was very excited about that.
