pvc tube bracelet

This looks like a fun project for pretty much any age – stuffing pretty scraps of yarn into a tube and then transforming it into a shiny bracelet. They remind me of the glittery water bracelets I used to wear back in the 80s. Our new friend PC over at Meijo’s Joy shared this cool project with us. It will definitely get you and your kids through the final “I’m Bored!” days of summer! [make a pvc tube bangle]

This bracelet is a great way to use up scraps of yarn (or even fabric!), or glitter, sand, beads, or whatever else fits inside a little plastic tube. You can find the tubing at your local hardware store, or maybe in the pet supplies section of your big box store.
