Materials

  • Black felt
  • Farfelle or dry pasta tubes
  • Child-safe paint (such as watercolors or tempera) or markers (red, black, green)
  • String
  • Safety scissors
  • Fabric glue
  • Hole punch

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Help your child decide which bracelet he/she would like to make. The farfelle (bow-tie pasta) and pasta tube bracelets are featured in the photo.<br><br> Once your child has picked his/her pasta preference, assist him/her as they paint the pasta red, green, and black. You will need about five farfelle pastas and/or twenty pasta tubes for each bracelet.

  2. Step 2

    Cut the felt about 7 inches long and 2 inches wide, or simply wrap the felt around your child's wrist, and cut the amount your child desires considering how thick of a band he/she wants(see photo for reference).<br><br> Once the felt sheet is cut, punch a hole at each end, about a half an inch from the edge.

  3. Step 3

    Use the fabric glue to paste the dry pasta to the felt. Allow time to dry.

  4. Step 4

    Cut the string about 8 inches long. This string will be used to tie the bracelet around your child's wrist, so make it long enough to form a bow.

  5. Step 5

    When the pasta is secured onto the felt, put the bracelet on your child's wrist, thread the string through the holes you punched in Step 2, then tie the string.
