Picture of How to make a bracelet out of Starburst wrappers
On the last day of school my friends and I were eating Starbursts and I thought that the wrappers could be used for something. I told my friends to try not to rip the wrappers when they took them off the candy. After school I had a ton of wrappers. I was messing around and figured out that if I folded them right I could make them into a bracelet. My friends love them and they look cool.

This is my first instructable so please tell me what I could do if anything to make my next one better.

Step 1: Things you need

Picture of Things you need
You only really need two things to make a Starburst bracelet.


Lots of Starburst wrappers(only use ones that aren't ripped)

One safety pin
 
We made these out of gum wrappers when I was a kid (I'm 61 years young :) ! Just recently I remembered them & showed my grandkids how to make them. It's good to see that some of the really neat things are'nt lost forever even if they have been reinvented to fit a new genneration! I'm glad you put this on Instructables so more people can enjoy just one the many simple & free yet entertaining things that we did so many years ago!

I learned how to make this bracelet with chewing gum wrappers...which is the original way to make it. But, I guess any old candy/gum wrapper would do.

This looks especially good when you use the silver foil of the gum wrapper.
WOW!!! this is neat, I've never seen a bracelet like this before. Great instructable BTW !!!!

I remember this is like the first instructable I ever read and it was amazing! I made a starburst bracelet last night and this morning with wrappers backstage when I was doing the closing night of this school musical, and I guess people had been eating starbursts but were luckily too lazy to throw away the stinkin wrappers! I'm also glad I had a safety pin, because I didn't remember what it was that you use to finish the bracelet, but i'm glad I remembered right!

I don't think you actually thought of that. Or did you???
EVERYBODY okay, not everybody, but a lot of people at my school do this. Well, actually, I don't go to that school anymore because I'm switching to high school, but still, a lot of people I know, they do this.

OMG I'm the friend hes talking about! Woot! No I really am.
I used to make these when I had a Spanish independent study in high school. It was better than learning Spanish.
