Rubber Band Girl Bracelets

You’ll be able to crank out a bunch of these stretchy bangles in a few minutes…
An easy jewelry craft for the kids.
My girls like to stack these and wear several at once.
For this project you will need: needle nose pliers, colorful rubber bands (I bought mine at Office Depot for a few dollars a bag. Make sure your rubber bands fit loosely on the wrist – mine measured 3-inches when loose), jump rings (available in the jewelry supply section of craft stores, I used .24" gold), and small beads. Make sure the hole in your bead is large enough to fit onto your jump ring.
Using the needle nose pliers, open the jump ring by pulling the ends sideways. Slip bead onto ring, slip ring onto rubber band and close jump ring by pulling the ends back together. This is the best way to open and close a jump ring – if you pull it apart directly, you will distort the shape of the ring.
I slipped on a few jump rings without beads too.
