Suzy from Suzy’s Artsy Craftsy Sitcom came across this idea in a magazine from 1970.  Don’t you love it when crafts come back around?  This idea has so many possibilities that it’s mind boggling, and popsicle sticks are just about the most inexpensive thing I can think of to make a bangle!  I love Suzy’s incredible painted designs and her addition of blingy embellishments, and even if you don’t feel confident enough in your painting skills to attempt such intricate patterns there are a bunch of other ways you can spiff them up as well!  [how to make popsicle stick bracelets]
