The mini ice cream sticks summer bracelet

  It's already hot enough and one of my favorite snacks this time of the year and of course mostly this year are mini ice creams on a stick :

    After eating a whole box of these, I collected the mini sticks and cleaned them:

    So, I thought to make a summer bracelet out of them. In order to connect them to each other I made 6 little holes on each using a thick needle, like this:

Make the holes on the same level on each stick, so when you put them all together side by side the holes form three rows

   Then I started painting the sticks with nail polish. You can use acrylic paint of course if you like. It will probably last longer ;-)

    Choose your favorite colors, I prefer different shades of red and pink:

     And some silver to add a bit of glamor...

    Now you will need some thread and a thin needle to start connecting the sticks. Better start from the middle row of holes:

   Make a thick knot and start passing your needle through the holes like on the picture above and below:


    After I finished with the middle row I sewed the rows on the edges in the same fashion and at the end of each row I made a multiple thick knot. So I finally had this:

   You need some material to make the clasp of the bracelet now. I used these :

   I attached couple of little rings and the hook on one side:

    And a piece of chain I found somewhere among my junk on the other side ... :


   And here it is on my wrist:

    What do you think?
