Kayleigh's Crafts - Make Your Own Straw Bracelet


Today we're making a straw bracelet, but the same method can be applied to make a necklace too. 

To make these yourself, have a look at our YouTube video or follow this step-by-step guide.  

    You will need:

    • Plastic Straws
    • Pipe Cleaner
    • Scissors

    Step 1:

    Take your straws and cut some pieces off that are about 1cm or slightly bigger. 

    Step 2:

    Decide if you will have a colour pattern with your bracelet or whether it will be all one colour or completely random. 

    Thread your straw piece onto your pipe cleaner and repeat until your pipe cleaner is full covered. 

    Step 3:

    Bring your pipe cleaner ends together to make a circle and twist the ends together so it's tight. 

    Tuck the sharp ends flat and into one of the straw pieces. Slide the straw over the connection so it's smooth the whole way round. 

    When you're done... 

    Have a look around your house to see what other things you could use instead of a pipe cleaner. Here we used a piece of string:


    We would love to see your finished crafts!
