Stacked name bracelets-

I just got a copy of the most fun jewelry book! My friend Bev wrote it! (you can buy a copy HERE) It’s awesome! I love 30 minute anything (low attention span!) So I love that you can whip up fun jewelry quickly!  30 minute jewelry book and there are so many amazing ideas! I love them all!!!  jewelry book It got me so inspired that I wanted to whip up these bracelets I have been dying to make! Stacked name bracelets–perfect for Mother’s day!
fun mothers day gift--stacked bracelets with kids names I wanted them all to go together somewhat–so I laid them all out before I tied them off to make sure I liked the layout! name bracelets

These letter beads always seemed so little kiddish….but that’s usually because they were paired with big pony beads! So I wanted to try them out with fun modern beads (all the beads were bought at Joann stores–40% off!)

(You can even buy some silver ones ABC beads and square ones)

cute bracelets for kids to make

They are super cute–and a great activity for kids to do for their moms on mothers day. I just cut the string (it’s stretchy) extra long and tied a knot on the end and then my daughter laid out her design and filled up the string! After it was perfect I snipped off the knot and added a crimp bead! (if you need help with crimp beads you can go HERE)

Here is the one my daughter made for her teacher!

(I think the trick is to give them beads that look good together…and maybe not to many options. I told my daughter to pick two colors…and to make a pattern. That way you end up with something you actually want to wear instead of….
