Good Monday, my friends (and welcome to guests from the Crazy Little Projects Birthday Bash)! I am excited to be sharing a tutorial for a fun candy birthday bracelet.
This time of year gets a bit crazy around here. In addition to Snap planning, we have FOUR, yes FOUR, birthdays in May. It’s a bit ridiculous…
Knowing that the first of the birthdays falls the Sunday following the close of Snap, I usually start thinking about birthday ideas early in the year. It’s the only way I can plan a decent celebration!
So, when Amber emailed me about joining her in celebrating her blogs second birthday with a quick birthday idea on my site, it was really a no brainer.
The youngest of the boys is turning eight this year and I’ve been thinking about what sort of favor to take to his class this year. I knew that it had to have something to do with CANDY. I wanted to create some sort of little candy bracelet and today I am sharing what I came up with!
Candy Birthday Bracelet
To create the candy birthday bracelet, you will need jelly bracelets (Well, that’s what we called them in the 80′s. The girl at Zurcher’s looked at me like I was crazy when I asked for them). You can purchase several of these for a dollar.
I tried creating the bracelets with several different types of wrapped candy from flat Razzles to taffy, Tootsie Rolls and bubble gum. Having tried them all, it was the gum and the Tootsie Rolls that really worked best.
Once I had the candy in hand, I simply tied it to the bracelet with a length of curling ribbon. I wanted my bracelet to look nice and full, so I used a lot of ribbon, but it probably wasn’t completely necessary.
Wouldn’t these look so cute with a birthday wish tied to them?
What a simple way to celebrate a child’s birthday!
