What to do with a growing yarn stash?
So, lately I’ve been designing jewelry projects that use yarn along with beads.
This bracelet pretty simple to make. You can make one in about 30 minutes to an hour. This is a fun craft that is simple enough for older kids and teens to try out.
Supplies and Tools:
- An old T-shirt
- Several balls of yarn in different colors
- Beads with a pretty wide hole. (9 mm Pony Beads work well. Paper beads would work well too!)
- Glue – Like Elmers glue
Here’s a YouTube video tutorial I put together for making a DIY bracelet.
Get Creative with Yarn and Beads
Using a bunch of different yarns allows you to create some fun and funky designs. Explore using different types and shapes of beads. You might even be able to use other objects like buttons — basically anything that is fairly small and can be strung onto the yarn.
Although I didn’t use paper beads in this tutorial, even they could be substituted for the beads used in this video. Learn how to make paper beads.
