Hey hey!! I’ve got a super fun project for you today! If you a Mom 4 Real fan (which you totally should be) then you’ve seen this pretty little bracelet. I shared it over there a little while ago. But… I love it so much I wanted to share it here too! With Easter just around the corner, this is a great last minute project! You can add it to your little girl’s basket or make one for yourself.
You can make your own DIY pretty ribbon ombre bracelet too!
Round Wood Beads (5/8 in.)
Acrylic Paint (in several shades)
Fray Check (optional)
Figure out how many beads you’ll need to paint by measuring your (or your model’s) wrist. For my (fairly small) wrist, I needed 12 beads.
I decided to do three shades of pink. I used three different shades of Martha Stewart paints because I had them on hand but you can easily fade a paint color by adding a few drops of white paint.
I painted four beads of each color. It took two coats to get full coverage. After painting all the beads, you’ll want to seal them to ensure durability.
After trimming the ribbon, I applied a little fray check to keep the ribbon from fraying. Now all you have to do it tie it on your wrist and show it off!
