“In order to carry a positive action we must develop here [pointing to his head] a positive vision.” –Dalai Lama
This project is fun for many reasons…it’s easy to make, low cost and it makes a great gift for anyone! I like to use these beads in the center with positive words. I wanted to make something to wear to remind myself to stay positive. I hope you’ll have lots of fun making these bracelets and may they help keep you on good vibes.
- Stretchy String
- Clear nail polish
First determine the size needed to make your bracelet. A simple way to do so is by putting the string around your wrist, add an addition 2 inches in length to leave you wiggle room to tie the ends of the string. Or you can use a ruler/measuring tape. Cut the desired length.
String the beads in the order you’d like your design to be.
Tie the two ends. I make at least 3 knots.
Add a dab of clear nail polish on the knots. This is done to add security to avoid the knots from coming undone. Using glue is not recommended because it will cause the stretchy string to crack. Allow the nail polish to dry.
Finally, cut the lose ends. Depending on the bead size you choose to use, you may be able to hide the knot inside one of the beads by pulling the string and sliding it inside.
You’ve done it!!! Now wear your bracelet and whenever you feel you need to center yourself just focus on your “positivity bracelet” and take a slow deep breath. Peace:)
