Easter Crafts for Kids… Candy Bracelets

 Hope y’all are all doing good!  Today I am so excited to share a fun idea for making Easter crafts for kids .  My kiddos love crafts and they love candy… so why not combine two of their very favorite things?! You are going to love these sweet Easter candy bracelets.

 Now you know I love a good Dollar Tree find, so when I saw these cute flower candies… I knew they’d be perfect to make bracelets for Spring and Easter.

Here is what you will need to make your own…

  • Lemonhead JuJu flowers
  • elastic thread (you could use regular thread, too)
  • tapestry needle (you could also use plastic needles with a dull head)
  • ribbons for embellishment

 The first thing you will do is tie a knot at the end of the string and then thread your needle.  Now it is time to get creative and add your flowers!  Super easy… just string them on until your bracelet sized for its sweet little owner.

 Tie off the bracelet and then add your embellishments.  On this one we tied off little bits of vertical striped ribbon.  Make sure to heat seal the ends of the ribboon by running the ends over a flame quickly.

 This bracelet was made with all one color of candies and tied at the end with the funky chevron ribbon… love!  This may be an Easter craft for kids, but I had quite a good time helping the girls make them, too. Maybe I could rock one of these bracelets for our Easter egg hunt this weekend… we’ll have to see if they last long enough without being eaten!!  Your kids can also make several of the adorable mason jar ideas that we shared yesterday if you are looking for more Easter fun!

Stay tuned for lots of fun tutorials between now and Easter… you are going to love them!

    Trish, that is so cute! I’m always looking for cute craft ideas to take to our family vacation at the beach each year. I’m known as the “crafty Aunt” now. It’s something I enjoy doing with my nieces and nephews. We have quite a few young ones in the family and they would love this. What kind of candy would you use for a “beachy” theme?

    This is so nice but too yummy! I don’t think it would last a second in my daughter’s wrist but it’s worth it, looks so cute!

    Thanks for sharing!
