Freja loves to braid. She braids fabric scraps, yarn and ribbons and she loves to give them to me as gifts. I, on the other hand, love it when I can turn her pretty crafts into something I can use. I have long wanted to make something out of all her wonderful braids, something I can use or wear, like bracelets.
We used colorful ribbons, glue and end caps in silver.
1. I was given this lovely bunch of braids for my birthday. Freja works hard to keep her mother happy. They are pretty, don’t you agree!
2. To make the bracelets, put three braids together, and tighten them together with a piece of thread. Make sure to tie the thread tight and hard. You don’t want the braids to come loose. Trim the the top of the ribbons and glue the end cap over the ends.
Frejas colorful ribbon braids are ready to be worn. Her beautiful braids are now saved from the dark drawers it might have ended up in. We made one bracelet each and I wear mine with happiness.
