Pretty Ombre Wood Bead Bracelet

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.

DIY Pretty Ribbon Ombre Bracelet
I am in love with the ombre trend. I see it everywhere I go and I can’t get enough. Target is in jumping in on the trend because the other day I noticed several ombre pieces in the women’s and kids sections! I haven’t added any pieces of ombre clothing to my closet yet but I did whip up this on trend bracelet.

You can make your own DIY pretty ribbon ombre bracelet too!

DIY Ombre Ribbon Bracelet
Supplies you’ll need: 

Ribbon

Round Wood Beads (5/8 in.)

Acrylic Paint (in several shades)

Sealer

Yarn Needle

Fray Check (optional)

Directions:

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 allowing the beads to dry, using a yarn needle string your beads onto the ribbon leaving plenty of slack for tying.

DIY Pretty Ribbon Ombre Bracelet
Tie a double knot at the end of each side of your bracelet and trim the ribbon about three to four inches (for tying the bow).

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!
