Nature Study-Bracelet Tutorial

I originally found the idea for these bracelets over at Mustard Seeds.  If you have not been to explore Mustard Seeds I highly recommend that you click on over there!

Supplies:

  • Nature items (small ones work best).
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Duct tape
  • Clear packing tape
  • Ribbon

Step 1: Head out on an adventure to collect your nature items.

Step 2: Measure a piece of duct tape around your child's wrist and then cut (the duct tape not the wrist) with scissors.  Lay the tape sticky side up on your work surface.

Step 3: Place nature items on the sticky side of the duct tape.

Step 4: cover your items and the duct tape with the clear packing tape.  Sort of like you are laminating it.
Step 5: Fold the packing tape around the duct tape so there are no sticky spots.

Step 6: punch holes in each of the short ends of your bracelet and threat ribbon through.

Step7: Tie to your wrist and enjoy your very cool new bracelet.
