diy valentine wish bracelet

February 6 2012 |

I’ve been into modeling clay recently and I got an itch to try out some handmade beads.  But then I needed a place to put them, so that turned into this.

Gather your materials.

  • Fimo modeling clay
  • baking pan & oven
  • embroidery needle
  • embroidery thread
  • bonus points: cute packaging material

Start by deciding what shape and size you’d like your beads.  I tried round, square, and heart before I decided I wanted teeny tiny triangles.  Shape your beads from modeling clay.  Pass the needle through the center of your bead and make a hole large enough to eventually thread a string.

Place the beads on a baking pan and bake according to the directions on the clay packaging.  Let them cool and string them onto an eight-inch length of embroidery thread, using the needle if necessary.

Tie a double knot on either side of the beads to keep them in place in the center of the bracelet.

Package your bracelets up and give with the following instructions: Tie on your wrist & make a wish.  When your bracelet falls off, wait for your wish to come true.  Be sure to wear with love.  Happy Valentine’s Day!
