{candy pumpkin bracelets}


Here is my "spooktacular"post from yesterday, over at eighteen25:


I was shopping last weekend, and saw the most adorable pumpkin bracelet in one of my favorite children's stores. I had to come home and try it, but in this super fun, candy version.

These would be the perfect addition to any Halloween party--as a favor, or as a craft. It's also a really fun activity to do with your kids at home, and my girls loved to help. They are simple to make, and really inexpensive, making it easy to make a bunch, or just one!

Candy Pumpkin Bracelets



ITEMS YOU NEED:
  • candy pumpkins
  • dental floss
  • needle, with large eye
  • ribbon
DIRECTIONS:

1. Cut off a long piece of floss. You will trim it later, but you want plenty to work with. I used white floss, but it doesn't really matter, since it will be completely covered. Thread it through your needle, just enough to get it through, plus a little bit.


2. Poke your needle into the bottom of the first pumpkin, and push it through the top. You will definitely need something to help push it through--your finger alone will not be strong enough. I used the dental floss case as leverage, and it worked perfectly.






3. Repeat this process, until you have enough pumpkins to completely circle wrist, and have a little bit of wiggle room. My girls are 4 years old, and I used 9 pumpkins on each of their bracelets.

4. Once you have the desired amount of pumpkins, tie your two ends of floss together to make a bracelet, then trim the ends.

5. Tie short pieces of ribbon in between the pumpkins. I made one bracelet with all black gingham ribbon, and the other I alternated the black gingham and an orange polka dot.

6. Wear 'em! For as long as they last. :)

Lei--

The jeans are from the Gap Outlet--I bought them a couple of years ago. What size does S wear? My girls have just about outgrown them.

Love these!!! Have already been a copycat and made 3 ~ 2 more to go ~ for my granddaughters but now am wondering since there is no give, will they be able to get them off and on easily. I tried elastic thread but bad idea! Any help would be appreciated! Love your blog, too, and am making it a favorite (guess I mean I'll be following you). Have already bought my cheap liquid soap for my "boo" gifts, too! Keep the ideas coming!!!!

Love this! I finally bought the pumpkin candy tonight and not a moment too soon - we'll be meeting my kids and granddaughter at the pumpkin patch on Tuesday. Looking at the tutorial though I don't think I'll have a problem getting it done tomorrow.

Thanks!
