In honor of the new movie Mirror Mirror and all little princesses out there, these adorable little bracelets are fit for itty bitty royalty. :) Little girls love anything having to do with dress up and being a princess, so this is a great project for them to make. 

The supplies you will need for this project are:

Cardboard tube
Scissors
Pink felt
White craft glue
Craft jewels

Step 1: Cut

Cut cardboard tube into 1.5″ wide rings (for each bracelet). Cut each ring open so that the bracelet can be easily slipped onto child’s wrist.

Step 2: Cut Felt

Cut a strip of felt 1.5″ wide long enough to cover the tube.

Step 3: Gauge Size

To gauge the size needed, cover the inside and outside of the tube, trim where needed.

If you would like to make a bracelet that’s more mature, maybe you have a daughter who has outgrown the princess stuff…

Step 7: Pick Paint

It seems a little difficult.

Hi Susan. It's actually quite easy! Just need to let the glue dry, so the hardest part is the patience factor :)

Thank you for your advice. I have made it successful.

That's great, thanks!
