I’ve been eying the “fashion shoelaces” at the dollar store for ages, trying to come up with a fun project to use them in.  With my son’s pirate-themed birthday party over the weekend, my brain was finally nudged into gear!  These skull-and-crossbone shoelaces were the perfect thing to fashion bracelets out of for the girl guests at the party — myself included, of course!  [Come see how it’s done!]

Project Estimate:

  • fashion shoelaces, $1
  • rhinestone applique, $1
  • scraps of 1/4″ elastic, on hand
  • tweezers
  • iron

Total:  $2 for 12 bracelets!!
