Beautiful Drinking Straw Bracelet!
I love this project because it's made with drinking straws, book pages and cord plus a couple of little things you already have!
Switch out the book pages for scrapbook paper and you're GOLDEN!
Take a look at the video and see how it's made.
Leave a comment and I'll send someone the actual bracelet, too! How fun is that?
Version with a little less paint on the ends
Tape a book page to a straw and roll. Secure the ends with Elmer's glue.
Cut the beads 2" long.
Paint the ends of the beads.
Tie a knot in 2 yards of cord and thread the ends of the cord through opposite ends of the beads.
Continue until you have created your cuff.
Tie a lobster claw on end of the row of beads.
Tuck the ends of the cord inside of the last bead and secure with glue.
Not bad! Fashionable and recycled!
