Sometimes you see an idea in the crafting world and it just hits you - of course! That’s exactly what we felt with silicone beaded wristlets! OF COURSE you want your keys on a cute silicone ring! They’re much harder to lose, easier to throw on your wrist as you wrestle a toddler out the door (it’s not just us, right?), and they’re sooo cute!
And what better bead to use, than one of our brand new printed beads from our Printed Silicone Crafting Bead line! These beads are gorgeous, and so perfect for your wristlet! We used the ever so cute leopard print, because… of course we did.
We’ve never felt so cool ;)
All the information for how to make your very own wristlet is below - and you can now buy a DIY Wristlet Kit with all the supplies included here!
- 16x 19mm Silicone Beads
- One length of 60” cording
- Crafting Needle
- Metal Keyring and Clip
- Metal Charm
STEP BY STEP
1. Take your cording and lighter and melt about a 1” length of cord so that it's hard and able to string beads easily.
2. String 16 of your 19mm silicone beads onto the cording.
3. Also string your Metal Keyring and Clip onto the same cord, through the Keyring.
4. Tie the string in a double knot, as tightly as you can.
5. Making a small single knot on each hanging string, use your knot grippers to tighten the knot even further.
6. Take your lighter and run it over your double knot to slightly melt it. Once the knot is cool, thread one of your strings with your crafting needs. Carefully, thread your needle through one of the beads beside your current double knot. (You may need pliers to help you get the needle through!)
7. Pull your threaded cord all the way through that bead, carefully pulling your knot into the bead to hide it.
8. You should have a string on each side of this bead. Trim them carefully, and use your lighter to melt the ends back that may be sticking out.
9. Take your small metal charm and add it to the Keyring for an extra little bit of sparkle!
10. Your wristlet is done! Add on your keys and you’re good to go!
