Magazine Bead Bracelets

1 May

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. If you are looking for a present that your kids could make this Mother’s Day, then keep reading.

We made these “Magazine Bead Bracelets” last year, and honestly I still have mine on my dresser. I like all the colors.

My Kids Make “Magazine Bead Bracelets”, and yours can too! Get out your magazines and start making your beads!

Making beads from old magazines is a great way to reuse the paper.

Cut strips of paper, glue and roll it into small “beads”.

Then, string the beads onto pipe cleaners, thread, yarn, etc…

    This is such a great idea! I would love to feature this on Reduce, Reuse, Upcyle. Feel free to stop by and grab a featured button.

    Cute cute cute!!

    I run Fun Family Crafts, a site similar in nature to Craftgawker and Spotlight, but different in that it’s a library of craft tutorials geared only at kids. I would love it if you’d stop by and submit this to be featured! (I link to you, I don’t post your tutorial on the site) Feel free to submit as many kid friendly craft tutorials as you like!

    [...] My Kids Make submitted this post to Craft Gossip, but I didn’t have a chance to post it before Mother’s Day due to becoming a mother for a 3rd time!

My girls would love these, and if I were to receive this as a gift…I would be honored. ┬áMy Kids Make also has a video tutorial on there as well! You may also like… [...]
