What is it about spring that just makes us feel better about everything?? Around here, it’s been a LONG winter….and we couldn’t be more excited for warm weather and sunshine! It makes us want to celebrate and play and be with friends….it just makes us HAPPY! And what better way to spread the happiness than by making friendship bracelets for all our friends and family!?
With three girls in the house, friends are one of the most important parts of our lives! And letting our friends know we love and appreciate them feels like a great way to spread spring cheer. As soon as we heard about this fun Skittles & Starburst 30 Pack from Sam’s Club we knew it would be just the inspiration we needed….so, with the help of #CollectiveBias, we headed to Sam’s Club to check it out!
Included in each pack are are so many bright spring colors and #VIPFruitFlavors….we couldn’t help but be inspired to make something bright, cheery, and fun! The girls helped me come up with ideas they knew their friends would love, including this cute little gift tag that says “I’m BURSTING with excitement that you’re my friend!!”
All it took was a few simple supplies:
- plastic beads
- large plastic needle
- Starburst candies
We followed these simple steps to make each bracelet:
1. Cut 3 feet of ribbon
2. Tie a double knot 6 inches from one end
3. Use the plastic needle to string Starburst and plastic beads, separating each with an additional double knot in the ribbon
4. Tie a final knot approx. 6 inches from the other end to finish the bracelet
5. Attach gift tag & fasten with a bow!
Each bracelet took about 5 minutes to make….and we LOVED how they turned out!
Since the 30 pack also contained Skittles, we decided we NEEDED to use those, too….so we turned them into a simple, adorable gift box by gluing them onto the top of a white cardboard box. The girls were able to do this part all on their own (the bracelet required a little help from me) and it created such a sweet package for the friendship bracelet.
The girls are so excited to make bracelets for all their friends and classmates….and the great thing is we have plenty of candy to make them for everyone! We better get busy!
Happy Spring, my friends!!
