DIY Bell Bracelet/Anklet

When I saw this jingle bracelet, my 1st thought was that O would LOVE it (take some time to browse the Nova Naturals site if you get a chance. Its a wonderful resource for beautiful, natural toys). Then I quickly realized that it would be very easy to make. It was! You need a pack of wooden beads, silver bells, and elastic string. Just thread the bells and beads onto the elastic string, cut your string, and tie it in a knot (I triple knotted mine for safety). Its super simple and fast. It was very satisfying to finish a project so quickly :) If you make this bracelet for a child under 3 make sure to supervise them at all times since it could easily break and pose a choking hazard.


  1. ooh!she is look like very happy:))

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this! Where did you find the wooden beads? My girl would LOVE to have a jingle bracelet! ~Sako

  3. I bought everything from Michael's. I was hoping to find the beads and bells at the dollar store, but I didn't have any luck. The beads were 3.99 for 30 which isn't the greatest price, but its not so bad. I'll have enough to make 4 bracelets, and I'll have 2 left over.

  4. I love it! A great accessory for dancing! :)

  5. What a great new instrument for your little girl. Such fun!
