Jelly Bean Bracelet

14 Apr


What better accessory could there be than one that you can eat?  A snack and a bracelet all in one! Its perfect.

My kids enjoyed making these with me, but this could also be a fun surprise for an Easter Basket {or even as party favors}!


My Kids Make a “Jelly Bean Bracelet” and yours can too. Grab a bag of jelly beans and get started!

Amy, over at Serving Pink Lemonade posted this cute idea.

When I saw her bracelets, I knew my kids would LOVE LOVE LOVE to try this project.


We used a regular needle and thread and simply “sewed” the jelly beans onto the thread.

Tie a large knot at one end of the string and then begin.

I will say that it is a bit hard to get the needle through the jelly beans,  but it will go.


My kids decided what color jelly beans {and in which order}, and I did the actual “sewing” of the jelly beans.

Once we reached the desired size, I tied the bracelet together.




I think I might make one for myself next!




Thanks for your help!

    I love food-as-jewelry crafts – simple, yet functional.

    Although it was a bit tricky to thread the jelly beans originally, I expect them to not fall off as easily as other candy jewelry (I’m looking at you, Twizzler/Froot Loops bracelet!).

    Great idea!

    love, love, love it.
    The best candy bracelet.
    I remember how much you loved candy bracelets from Baily’s.

    How soon did the kids eat the jelly beans off of their bracelets?

    So Cute! I’m your newest fan! I can’t wait to do this with my kids over December break (with red, white, and green jelly beans).

    I microwaved the jelly beans a few seconds first to soften them up. That helped. Love the idea! I also added a ribbon on top of the knot. Turned out really cute and my girls loved them.

    I used your idea! Thanks for sharing your creativity! I too posted about making them. You can read about it here if you’d like -> I had come across the pin for this wreath and repinned it on pinterest. I have since made the wreath myself and posted about it on my own blog.
