How to Make a Fidget Bracelet
Here is how we made our simple DIY fidget bracelets.
Take a pipe cleaner and measure the child’s wrist. Cut the pipe cleaner to the desired size plus two inches.
Make a small loop on one of the ends of the pipe cleaner.
Next, decide what beads to use and what pattern you want to make with them. Line the beads up along the straight pipe cleaner to ensure you have the correct number to complete your chosen design.
Make sure you leave enough space between beads so they spin easily or can shift up and down to ensure the fidgeting functionality of the bracelet remains.
Slide the beads onto the pipe cleaner.
When you are finished with your design, twist the straight end of the pipe cleaner into another loop.
To attach the bracelet to the wrist, wrap the two loops around each other to secure the bracelet. Untwist the loops to remove the bracelet.
