My daughter will turn 5 soon and she loves all the sugariest, pinkest, heart-covered girly stuff and it’s so FUN. On top of that, she loves to paint and craft and get her hands dirty in our craft room. This got me thinking about the perfect gift I could give her that would infuse all of her favorite girly things. That’s when I came up with an idea for a charm bracelet project kit, perfect for letting her create an adorable bracelet that she makes herself!
If you have a girl between the ages of 4-14 in your life, I think this charm bracelet project kit is going to be a hit. It’s so fun and easy to put together and lets their imagination run wild since part of the fun is creating their own one-of-a-kind beads! Here’s how you do it:
Supplies needed to make your own charm bracelet project kit:
- Martha Stewart Acrylic Paint
- Assorted Wood Cut Outs
- Jewelry Making Cable Chain
- Brass Eye Pins
- Jewelry Designer™ Jump Ring
- Assorted Plastic Beads
- Tassel Key Chains
- Assorted Acrylic Pom Poms
- Reclosable Small Bags 2 x 1.5 inches
- Reclosable Small Bags 3 x 5 inches
- Darice Photo Storage Box
- Paint Brushes
Step 1. Paint your beads! Part of the fun of this kit is that these wooden pieces are unfinished which gift your bracelet maker free reign to create something totally original! Apply two coats of paint and let dry completely.
Step 2. Make some adorable pom pom beads by poking your brass eye pin through the middle. Cut off the end and secure with a dot of glue.
Step 3. Get the beads ready for the charm bracelet project kit by drilling a small hole in them. You could also do this prior to painting them.
Step 4. Push a jump ring through all of the DIY beads.
Step 5. Attach your beads to the bracelet and close the jump ring!
That’s how you make a gorgeous DIY charm bracelet! Now let’s assemble all the pieces in a charm bracelet project kit you can give to a craft-loving lady in your life!
Step 6. Assemble all of the pieces for making the charm bracelets in separate re-closable bags (i.e. a bag for pom poms, one for the wooden pieces, one for the jump rings, etc.). This will keep them organized and allow the recipient to see them all when they open the box.
Step 7. Layer your box with tissue paper and place the bags of supplies in the box along with a couple paint colors and a paint brush!
That’s it! Now you’ve created a one-of-a-kind gift that is going to let the girls in your life express themselves in the cutest way!
We hope you have a blast giving away a charm bracelet project kit, or making a bracelet for yourself!
