About: I'm a experienced software engineer loved to electronics and robotics.

Hello Everyone,

In this Instructable, I’m going to show you how to make a charming bracelet easily at home featuring handmade beads out of paper.

To make this you’ll need the following items,


  • Papers of different colors

  • Pair of scissors
  • Pen straw
  • Bottle of glue
  • 50 cm length of Wire
  • Small size bottle

Step 1: Cut the Papers Into Triangular Shapes

As the step 1, we are going to cut papers into long and thin triangular shapes. We need to make sure we
have enough amount of triangular shaped pieces.

Step 2: Make the Beads Using Pieces of Paper

As the step 2, we are going to make the beads out of the paper. For that first take one piece of a
triangular shaped paper. Then pick the broad end of the piece and wrap it around a pen straw. In the half way of wrapping, apply glue on the paper piece to get the shape of a bead. Once it gets dry, remove it from the straw and keep separately. Likewise, from each piece of paper you can make enough number of beads for the bracelet.

Step 3: Make the Bracelet Thread

As the step 3, we are going make the bracelet thread. For that, take the piece of wire then carefully extract the copper thread that is inside. Once the copper thread is extracted take the small sized bottle and wrap the copper thread around it to get a round shape.

Step 4: Assemble the Beads

As the step 4, we are going to assemble the paper beads with a preferred color combination. Pass the
round shaped copper thread through the beads and arrange the beads accordingly. Make two hooks in each end of the thread to work as a buckle.

This is a very easy and quick way to make a charming bracelet at home with very limited resources.

Thank you for watching.
