#CountdowntoChristmas – Last Minute Christmas Gifts

 In Live a Creative Life, Try This!

The holiday season has us all going around in circles trying to get everything done. Getting ready to spend time with friends and family, entertaining, attending parties and doing so much more! Gift shopping is another task to be completed and at times it is hard to find fun gifts for all the people on your list. We always end up in need of some last minute Christmas gifts.

This funky bracelet can be made so many different ways and is great for the friends, teachers and even little girls in your life. All you do is vary the size of the beads and pins and change the color scheme to get a completely different look.

Last Minute Christmas Gifts

This is a fun chic and easy to make design. You can create several of these bracelets in an evening which makes this perfect as last minute Christmas gifts.

Just take some safety pins and fill them with the beads you want. You can choose to add different styles of beads or use the same ones. You can also add the same beads to each pin just varying the color of the beads in each pin. This will give you a beautiful colorful bracelet. You can also vary the shades of color to create a more sophisticated design. Like I have done above you can also vary both the colors and the designs on the beads. The possibilities here are endless and you can have so much fun with this project.

Next take some elastic and thread it through the top and the bottom of the pins. You can add spacer beads like I have or just use lots of pins. There you go! Tie the elastic pieces when the desired length has been reached and you’re all done! Make some as gifts for neighbors and teachers and some as stocking stuffers this holiday season.

    These are so simple to make – I’d love a steampunk version!
