Make It : Valentine Sticker Charm Bracelet—How Charming!

Posted by

Heart Charm 001

Sometimes I get an idea stuck in my head, but I'm not too sure what I'm going to do about executing it. With Valentine's Day descending on us, I have had heart charms on my mind. Wanting to make a bracelet, but not too clear on what I wanted to make the charms from, it floated in my mind until I saw these plastic stickers when it hit me. Back the stickers to each other, punch a hole, and attach to a bracelet with a jump ring. Done!

Once I completed the first bracelet, I was happy to see a few other sticker packs that were plastic. They worked like a charm to create two more bracelets. And the good news? It only requires one pack of stickers to create each style.

    I actually found all the jewelry supplies at Michael's.

  • What a great idea... I'll have to show my step daughters and nieces how to do that

  • The bracelet is totally cute! I want to make one but I have a silly question, is the plastic strong enough not to break at the jump ring? I don't want to leave a trail of hearts when I wear it! Thanks!

  • I ADORE THIS! I too get stuck ideas. I think they are always the most fun!

  • This is such an amazing idea!! I am so inspired to make Valentine's bracelets to wear and give away. I love reading the blog and seeing all the amazing ideas you guys always come up with. Keep up the amazing work!

  • What a cool idea!

    Looks like you could make use these back to back stickers and nylon thread for a homemade Valentines garland....

    Hi Lourdes - the stickers are pretty think, especially when backed to each other. when making your hole for the jump ring, just make sure it's not too close to the edge and it should be secure.

  • This is such a great idea! Thanks for sharing it. I made a necklace similar to this once, but a bracelet seems so much more wearable.
    It would be a cute project for a birthday party.

  • This is really cute! Haven't thought that you can do a bracelet using stickers! Cool concept!

  • How do you make the hole for the jump ring?

  • This project is really fun to do. You always share such amazing crafts with us. Thank you.

  • So clever! I was thinking that with your idea, you could also Make cell phone charms as well. Earrings, etc. There are so many gorgeous stickers right now!

  • Ok, you got my motor going :)
    Wouldn't it be cute to do a mmobile out of a hoop with these (painted to coordinate)? You could even stand them up to decorate a cake.
    Hanging from a book bag.....

  • This is my last post on this :) wouldn't it be cute to do this idea of 2 stickers together to make little barbie accessories ( cupcakes, etc). What fun!!
