It is easily made with foam heart stickers and hair elastics. And they are very cheap to make.

It could be a fun project to make with your little girl, or one she can make them with her friends. (With a little help from you.)

You can make stretchy Valentine heart bracelets in different colors to match different outfits.

Materials.

Hair Elastics

Foam Heart Stickers

Jump Rings

How To Make Stretchy Valentine Heart Bracelets.

1. Choose a hair elastic for the bracelet.

2. Remove the backings from two heart stickers and stick them back to back.

If you use 2 different colors, your bracelet can have 2 different looks.

3. Using an ice pick or other pointed tool, poke a hole through the center top of the heart.

4. Add a jump ring to the hole and close it.

5. Put another jump ring through the first jump ring and around the hair elastic.

6. To add a second heart, repeat steps 1 through 5, adding an extra jump ring to make the heart dangle a little lower.

Using different colors for each side of the hearts, you can make a very colorful stretchy Valentine heart bracelet.

  1. Very cute!

  2. Right up my daughter’s alley! I’ll have her make these for her female classmates for Valentines Day!

  3. What a great idea! I wear elastics around my wrist all the time and I have plenty of jump rings, but I never thought of combining the two. I’m definitely going to pin this and make some! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I really like the reversible feature to the stickers – great little girl project!

  5. What a sweet idea! My daughter would love this. I like to do baskets for Valentine’s Day (like Easter baskets)…I just might include these.

  6. So easy and so cute! Love it on the bear!

  7. Hi, I haven’t been here in a while and wonder what I missed. I’m pinning this. How often have I put these elastics on my wrist as I find them scattered here and there!! Best wishes, Linda

  8. Cute idea. I think I would like them just as hair bands as well.

  9. Hi, Love this idea! So simple and easy but a great Mommy-Daughter craft! Thank you for posting!

  10. FYI~ I picked up the supplies for this today. I found different hair bands that match PERFECTLY at Dollar Tree!

  21. These would also be cute worn on ponytails. Thank you for sharing this Valentine craft on Fluster’s Creative Muster Party.

  22. Fun idea! I love how versatile this is – pefect as a bracelet, but just as cute for putting in their hair, or even as the collar for a beloved stuffed animal!

  23. Clever, quick and easy!

  24. No! Oh goodness, no! This is a very very bad idea. Hair elastics should never be worn around the wrist, no matter how small the wrist. There are too many important veins, arteries and capilaries in the wrist to put that kind of constriction on there! This is a very cute idea, but some other material needs to be used for the stretchy part.

  25. Thank you so much for mentioning this. We all need to remember to be careful with our children.
