Flowers-and-Ice Fairy Friendship Bracelet

When Tinker Bell sneaks over the border into the mysterious Winter Woods and meets a frost fairy named Periwinkle, the two soon make an amazing discovery. Having been born of the same laugh, they are “all-weather sisters.” As a tribute to the special bond that forms between them, this friendship bracelet combines elements of summer and winter — pretty purple flower blossoms and beads as clear as ice.

What You'll Need
For each bracelet: Purple felt, six 1/2- by 1-3/4-inch strips
Scissors
Embroidery floss or strong thread
Faux pearl or gem stickers
Hot glue gun
Clear pony beads
Clear stretchy beading elastic
How To Make It
  • 1

    Tightly tie the center of each felt strip with a double strand of embroidery floss, as shown.

  • 2

    Use more floss to tie two of the cinched strips together crossways.

  • 3

    Trim the ends of the strips into petal shapes.

  • 4

    Then decorate the flower center with a faux pearl or gem sticker.

  • 5

    Create two more flowers from the remaining felt strips.

  • 6

    Hot glue a pony bead to the bottom of each flower.

  • 7

    String the flowers and additional beads onto a piece of stretchy beading elastic, creating a bracelet sized to fit your child's (or her friend's) wrist. Tie the ends of the elastic together tightly, using a bit of hot glue to secure the knot if needed. Then trim the ends an inch or so from the knot, and thread them back through the adjacent beads.
