Intro: Cardboard Tube Princess Bracelet
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:
White craft glue
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.
Step 4: Glue
Use white craft glue to attach the felt to the cardboard tube.
Step 5: Add Jewels
Using a generous amount of white craft glue, cover the outside of the bracelet with craft jewels. Let it dry completely.
Step 6: Done - But a Different Version Is Available...
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
Put different colors of paint into a paint palette. Dip paintbrush into one color, the dot the brush into one or two more colors to mix.
Step 8: Dip and Apply
Don’t stir the colors, just dip, then apply to the cardboard.
Step 9: All Done, Now Another Version
Here's the other version.
