Need a quick last minute gift? Bead bracelets are quick to make and easily can be customized with different sizes and colors of beads. This tutorial shows you how to make an elastic bead bracelet. Make one for yourself and for those on your gift list.

Misc. Crafts

DIFFICULTY:
Beginner

MATERIALS:

TUTORIAL:

Select your beads. For this tutorial I used a strand of carnelian beads purchased from a bead store.

Cut apart the beads if necessary. I guessed that I had enough for two bracelets.

Slide the elastic thread through the bead holes to string them. Make sure the size of thread is thin enough to easily fit through the holes.

Wrap beads around your wrist to make sure the bracelet fits well before cutting the thread.

If making a bracelet for a gift, you can compare one of the recipient’s current bracelets to gauge the correct size.

Cut thread and tie a double knot.

For a more finished look slide one more bead over the knot.

Tie several knots over this last bead.

Cover knot in craft glue and let dry.

Now you have a finished bracelet. Or two in my case.

Wear your bracelets or wrap them up to give away as gifts.

Craft on!
