Can you feel spring in the air? I know I can. I mean, yes, it snowed a couple of days ago here in Provo. But the early spring holidays have a way of giving me hope that it will actually stay warm one of these days!
One of these early spring holidays is St. Patrick’s Day. I know it’s a small holiday, but it still feels worth getting excited for. Any excuse to celebrate, right? Well this year we have a perfect little project to save you from all the pinches while at the same time giving you a festive flair. Introducing our St. Patrick’s Day beaded bracelets!
St. Patrick’s Day Beaded Bracelets
I’m guessing I’m not alone when I say there have been more than a few St. Patrick’s Days where I’ve been subjected to a fair amount of pinching. I’m not sure why, but I guess I just don’t buy much green. Well if you’re in the same boat, this St. Patrick’s Day beaded bracelet is the perfect solution! It’s a quick and easy option that gives you a fun pop of green without having to go out and buy something on the spot. Plus it’s lovely and delicate. It’s pretty enough that you don’t have to wear it just one day a year, either! Save it for a spring tea party or other special occasion–it’s a subtle little touch of feminine class.
How to make a St. Patrick’s Day Beaded Bracelet
One of the best things about these sweet little St. Patrick’s Day Beaded Bracelets, aside from being lovely, is how easy they are to make! Here’s how to do it:
- First, take a piece of string and measure your wrist. Now double the thread and leave a little ease on each end.
- Next, thread the needle and pull the thread through so it’s even with the other end of the thread.
- If you’re using jewelry clasps, tie one onto the very end of the string and make sure it’s securely knotted.
- Now you’re ready to begin threading the beads! To do this, simply choose a pattern of beads you like and slip them onto the strand of string with the needle. See our step photos for help making the beaded four leaf clovers.
- When you have a length you’re happy with, tie the end with the corresponding jewelry clasp. If you opted to do the bracelet without clasps, simply tie off the bracelet at each end with multiple, secure knots. Leave enough ease so you can tie the bracelet.
- Done! You’ve made your own St. Patrick’s Day beaded bracelet!
