A Simple Valentine's Day Bracelet

So, is it too early to be making things for Valentine's Day? 

I didn't think so. :o)

Random Fun Fact: I have been loving Jade and Turquoise lately. 

No idea why, but there is just something about pairing those two colors with red that makes me happy. 

Random, I know, but while browsing in Michael's the other day I found some Jade colored beads that I just couldn't pass up.

Unsure of what I was going to do with a string of Jade colored beads, I looked for something red to complement my new favorite color pallet.

When I found these red hearts I decided that a simple Valentine's Day Bracelet was in order! 

Seriously, as soon as I saw these beads I fell in love.

The fact that they were 40% off might have helped a little too. :o)

I started with some elastic cord that I had on hand, but you can find it at most craft stores.

Then I just started stringing.

I used the majority of my Jade colored beads, but only one red heart.

Any idea what I should do with all those hearts?

Anyway, after I had the beads strung I looped the left side through again for strength.

To finish, I tied off the ends, added a dab of super glue to the knot, and then snipped off the remaining strings.

And there you have it!

Cute, huh.

Now you have a cute and simple bracelet to wear for Valentine's Day, or St. Patrick's Day, or everyday! :o)

Happy Friday!

Pin It!
