Christmas Charm Bracelet for a Little Girl




By Noreen Doll.

Create a quick and easy Christmas charm bracelet for a little girl.

This would make a great stocking stuffer, or a fun party favor for a little girl’s party.

Materials

4 – 1 inch Cardboard Squares

8 – 1 inch Colored Card Stock or Paper Squares

4 Stickers

Jump Rings

Clasp for Bracelet

Mod Podge

Glitter (optional)

Clear Acrylic Spray (optional

Prepare the Square Charms for the Christmas Charm Bracelet

1. Using a Sharpie or other permanent ink pen to match the colored paper, color the edges of the squares.

2. Apply Mod Podge to the back side of a square.

While still wet, attach one of the colored paper squares to the cardboard.

Repeat with the other squares.

3. Apply a coat of Mod Podge over the colored paper. Let dry.

Use a hair dryer to help speed drying.

4. If you are going to apply a second coat of Mod Podge, add it now and let it dry.

5. Turn the cardboard square over and use Mod Podge to apply a colored paper square to the top side.

Repeat with the other squares.

6. Apply a layer of Mod Podge on top of the colored square and immediately add a sticker.

Apply more Mod Podge over the entire top of the square. Let dry.

Repeat with the other squares.

7. Add a second coat of Mod Podge to the top of the square, and sprinkle on a bit of glitter while it is still wet.  Let dry.

8. Spray a coat of clear acrylic over the top of the square to seal the glitter.

9. Punch a small hole in each side of each charm to add a jump ring.

Make the Christmas Charm Bracelet

1. Use jump rings to attach the charms to each other.

2. If the bracelet needs to be longer, you can make 5 or 6 charms. Or you can add more jump rings between the squares.

3. Add a jump ring to each end of the bracelet.

4. Attach a clasp to the jump rings.

It’s a Christmas charm bracelet a little girl will love to wear.

Tips

You could make a version of this charm bracelet for any holiday: hearts for Valentine’s Day, shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day, eggs or bunnies for Easter, or patriotic, Halloween or Thanksgiving designs.

I bought the cardboard squares, but you can easily use cereal box or other cardboard to make the squares.

You can cut cardboard in any shape for the charms. Circles or ovals would look interesting, too.

There are different kinds of clasps you can choose to fasten the bracelet.

Sometimes a split ring works better for a child’s jewelry because it doesn’t come apart as easily as a jump ring.

This Christmas charm bracelet is made with small parts. So be sure the child who will be wearing it is old enough not to put it or the parts in his/her mouth.
