School Holiday Friendship Bracelets

Pin It
The problem with the July school holidays in Australia is that they fall in the middle of Winter and it's a bit tricky to keep everyone amused, when it's cold and rainy outside.  A cute little craft activity can be just the thing to keep boredom at bay.

You will need:

Florist wire
Scissors to cut the wire and/or jewelers pliers and snippers 
Crochet cotton
Crochet hook


Using the florists wire make a charm by bending the wire into the desired shape, leaving wire loops at either end to attach the crochet band.  You can make letters or symbols and it's a lot of fun to experiment.

To make band

The band is made by making a crochet chain which is tied to the little loops formed in the wire charms.  Measure the length of band you require (or guess if you are making the bracelet for a friend) and allow enough length so that the bracelet can be tied loosely around the wrist.  The band is made in two sections and is of equal length on each side of the charm.

Happy school holidays
