Popsicle Stick Bracelets

When I saw this pin on Pinterest for popsicle stick bracelets, I knew the boys and I had to try it.

First, I soaked them in my paper boiling pan overnight.  Once they were nice and pliable, I gently bent them into the smallest glasses I have.  There were plenty of fragile casualties as seen on the counter.

I let the wet sticks sit in their glasses for a whole day.

They are supposed to be cuff bracelets, but ours didn’t turn into cuffs.  Instead they were kind of half bracelets.  I think It was because the sticks I used were thinner and shorter than the ones from Pinterest.  The cuff bracelets would have been more successful with tongue depressors, I think.

Instead of starting the hole project over again, with different sticks, I improvised.

I dremeled holes in the ends of the sticks to lace embroidery floss through and the cuff problem was solved.

The boys colored them with sharpies.

I don’t know why Conrad and Jeremia look so unenthused.  I guess they just weren’t in smiling moods.

After they were all done coloring their sticks, I clear coated them with spray paint.  I did that because I’d gotten my prototype bracelet wet while wearing it and it started losing it’s curve.  The clear coat helps keep that from happening.

All in all it was a pretty simple and cute project.
