Pipe Cleaner Wrapped Bracelets

Pipe Cleaner Wrapped Bracelets

My daughter is at the age where she is very interested in friendship bracelets, but not quite old enough to get the braiding techniques down yet. We found a way for her to make friendship bracelets that she could easily do.

Ages:
5 - 9
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. embroidery thread
  2. pipe cleaner
  1. We used a larger pipe cleaner that has more fluff to create a thicker bracelet.

  2. We used two colors of embroidery thread and one pipe cleaner for each bracelet. I tied the threads to one end of the pipe cleaner and handed it over to my daughter to wrap all the way to the end of the pipe cleaner.

  3. She twisted it around and around to get a fun look.

  4. Once she got to the end I tied it again. You can keep adding colors or leave it like this.

  5. We twisted the ends together to get the size bracelet we wanted.

  6. That was it! My daughter was very happy to finally have a friendship bracelet she could make for her friends.
