Popsicle Stick Bracelet

The other day I found this tutorial over at "Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom" and thought it would be PERFECT to try.

I'm not going to post the whole tutorial - go ahead and check it out at the link above for the full thing.  However, I did do it slightly differently.  I found that my bracelets wouldn't stay on my wrist after they dried.  :(  So I used a little ingenuity - case in point:

I realized that I could hot glue two of them together to make a bangle bracelet!  Please, please.  No applause necessary.  ;)  

So I hot glued the two together like in the pictured and wrapped mine with some pretty gold yarn we had at work, and VOILA!!!

I was really impressed with myself (even though my picture taking skills aren't too great...).  This was such an E.A.S.Y. project, and it's perfect to do with older kids and/or middle schoolers and up.  And a great way to add some faux vintage jewelry to your collection!
