When I saw these colorful, translucent bingo chips, I knew I wanted to do something crafty with them! I was really excited about how inexpensive they were, especially with how many come in a package (150!). I am always looking for projects to do with the youth group that I am involved with. The projects need to be in expensive, simple, and not need a lot of tools. This project is a perfect one! And it was a plus that my girls were crazy about the fun colors of the bingo chips. The bracelets are a perfect girl scout craft, girl’s camp project, or a fun birthday party activity.
Supplies needed to make your own girl scout craft bracelets:
- Bright Silver 7 inch Bracelets
- Colored Plastic Bingo Chips
- Nickel Plated Jump Rings
- Euro Metal Hole Punch Pliers (or other heavy duty hole punch)
I went with all of the colors except the clear chips. (Although I do think that an all clear chip bracelet will be a future project!)
Open a jump ring. Honestly, I thought this would require pliers, but I just used my hands to bend the rings outward. This is where it would be a great project for youth. No tools needed after punching the holes in the chips.
I hope you are inspired to add this colorful, unique piece to your jewelry collection, incorporating an uncommon craft supply!
