Are you ready to be the coolest mom ever? The next time you have to host a slumber party or scout craft project that requires recycling try this one. The Lucite Fashion Cuff is all the rage on the spring runway, making these will keep young girls in style while saving the environment. A fast and simple craft that can be finished in less than 10 minutes, but looks like a million bucks.
Start by removing the label from the plastic bottle, if necessary.
Use the scissors, cut the top and bottom off of the bottle, keeping the middle part as your cuff. Cut the tube of the bottle making it a cuff that will slip over the wrist. If needed, trim off the excess length to make it fit the wrist nicely without overlapping.
Next, apply the stick on gems in a pretty pattern on the plastic cuff and you’re done.
I love this project because it produces a nice end result, and is a perfect example of recycling; remember Earth Day is coming soon!
