Summer Bracelets

★★★★★ ★★★★★

It’s so easy to make pretty bead-weaving bracelets with Perler beads, and there is no fusing so these projects are portable! Dress them up with decorative metal beads, charms, or a tassel and you have something special. Designed By Karen Benvenuti.

Step: 1

Bead Colors Needed for Set of 3 Bracelets—20 or so of each color:

  • Pearl Coral
  • Blush
  • Hot Coral
  • Yellow
  • Pink Candy Stripe
  • Pink
  • Plum
  • Toothpaste
  • Pastel Green
  • Light Green
  • Parrot Green

See the Supply List for beads and tools you can purchase here. You will also need:

  • Baker’s twine or embroidery thread - peach, pink, light green
  • Decorative silver tone beads - optional
  • Small silver tone charms - optional
  • Scissors

Step: 3

SEA SPRAY BRACELET:

We used toothpaste, pastel green, light green, and parrot green beads, along with some silver-tone beads and charm. Cut 2 pieces of twine each 30 inches long. Hold the two ends together and tie a knot about 7 inches from one end. The 7 inch end will be used to tie the finished bracelet on your wrist. Tape this end to your table for stability while you work.

Lay out your color design according to your wrist size (you can use more or fewer beads as needed). Pick up your first bead in your design and thread one end of the twine through it (about 2 inches). Thread the other piece of twine through the bead from the opposite direction. Pull the ends snug to hold the bead. Repeat this step with all of your beads. If adding decorative beads, use them in the same manner.

After the last bead has been threaded, pull the twine snug and tie a knot at the end. If you are adding a charm, tie it on now. Leaving 7 inches on this end of the bracelet also to tie onto your wrist, trim any excess.

Step: 4

COTTON CANDY BRACELET:

Make this in the same way as the Sea Spray Bracelet, using pink candy stripe, pink, and plum beads.

Step: 5

CITRUS PUNCH BRACELET:

For our bracelet, we used pearl coral, blush, hot coral, and yellow beads. Cut 2 pieces of twine each 30 inches long. Hold the two ends together and tie a knot about 7 inches from one end. The 7 inch end will be used to tie the finished bracelet on your wrist. Tape this end to your table for stability while you work.

Lay out your color design according to your wrist size (you can use more or fewer beads as needed). Pick up your first bead in your design and thread one end of the twine through it (about 2 inches). Thread the other piece of twine through the bead from the opposite direction. Pull the ends snug to hold the bead. Next, thread a bead onto each individual piece of twine. Then, thread one bead with both pieces of twine again. Repeat this pattern with all of your beads.

After the last bead has been threaded, pull the twine snug and tie a knot at the end. If you are adding a charm, tie it on now. Leaving 7 inches on this end of the bracelet also to tie onto your wrist, trim any excess.

Step: 6

MAKING A TASSEL:

Wrap twine around your four fingers about 15 times and cut from spool.

Carefully slip the twine bundle off your hand. Tie a 6 inch piece of twine around the center of the bundle. DO NOT TRIM.

Fold the bundle in half at the tie and pull the ends together. Use another 6 inch piece of twine to tie the bundle about 1/4 inch down from the knot and finish with a square knot.

Trim tassel ends to the desired length. Use the top twine ends to attach the tassel to your bracelet.
