Beaded Name Bracelets

Grab your little ones and sit them down for some fun arts and crafts time. They can make bracelets with their names and so much more. 

Learning how to make name bracelets with beads is super simple. You will be so surprised.

I remember giving my best friend in middle school a beaded bracelet with my name on it. That way, everyone would know that she is my best friend. 

This is such a cute way to show how much you care about someone. And it does not really have to stop at names.

Maybe you want your bracelet to actually say “best friends” or something cute like that. The choice is completely yours. 

I personally love to make coupled bracelets. By this, I mean one bracelet with a word or name on it and another that has no words but complementary color. 

Now you will have two bracelets that go together. I truly feel like a fashionista when I rock two bracelets that I made myself. 

You could also make matching bracelets for you and a friend. I think I may make a bracelet with my dog’s name on it.

There are so many ways that you can personalize your beaded bracelets. Names, of course, would be the most common way to go. 

You and the kiddos will have a fun time working together on these bracelets. And you know for sure that they will be unique to you. 

When you get your beads for the project, try to get an assortment of colors to use. That way, there is nothing holding you back from creativity. 

There is a multitude of beads that you can use for these. You have gold filled beads, spacer beads, letter beads, seed beads, colored beads, and so much more.

Just design it, tie a knot, and finish up your name bracelet or friendship bracelet.
