Cardboard Tube Princess Bracelet

Do you have a little princess at your house? If you do, she’ll love this bracelet. It’s fun to make and she’ll be able to do just about everything herself! So if your little princess is looking a little bored, pull out the craft jewels, felt and a toilet paper or paper towel tube and get crafting!

You will need

Cardboard tube
Scissors
Pink felt
White craft glue
Craft jewels

What you do

Cut cardboard tube into 1.5″ wide rings (for each bracelet). Cut each ring open so that the bracelet can be easily slipped onto child’s wrist.

Cut a strip of felt 1.5″ wide long enough to cover the tube.

To gauge the size needed, cover the inside and outside of the tube, trim where needed.

Use white craft glue to attach the felt to the cardboard tube.

Using a generous amount of white craft glue, cover the outside of the bracelet with craft jewels. Let it dry completely.

If you would like to make a bracelet that’s more mature, maybe you have a daughter who has outgrown the princess stuff…

Put different colors of paint into a paint palette. Dip paintbrush into one color, the dot the brush into one or two more colors to mix.

Don’t stir the colors, just dip, then apply to the cardboard.

    Very cute! My little girl isn't quite old enough to "get" using glue and gems and waiting for something to dry. But maybe we can borrow your idea and make some bracelets with stickers. Thanks for the ideas!

    I have a big bag full of cardboard tubes that I've been saving for school. My niece would love to make one of these the next time she visits. Thanks for the inspiration.

    My little princess is a bit too old for this now and not old enough for a princess of her own yet but what a clever idea. I know so many little girls that would go gaga for this.
    Thank you for submitting my violin to the the crafting website. I was unfamiliar with it so another thank you for the heads up. I am sure I will be able to find a lot of inspiration there in brief amounts of time. That is valuable. :)
    Have a great week and thanks again,
    Pam @ Becolorful

    […] Little Taylor’s room yells Princess from every corner. Help her bring that fantasy to life with a little creativity. Make a Princess hat from poster board or a sheet of craft foam and some tulle. Tape the end of some tulle to the poster board, then roll up the poster board into a cone shape. Trim the bottom edge of the cone so it is even, and decorate the rim with felt or lace. Use tape or a stapler (make sure the sharp end of the staple is on the outside of the hat) to attach a piece of elastic for a chin strap. Make a fancy skirt by sewing shiny fabric, then covering in complementary tulle (or raid the dress-up box). Finish with a pretty blouse, add some body glitter to her face, a touch of lip gloss and some simple homemade princess bracelets. […]
