Love of God Bracelet

heart bracelet

These bracelets were made for our last Little Flower’s meeting ~ St. Agnes & Love of God.  The girls were thrilled to have an edible craft and motivated* to find new ways to show & grow in their Love of God.  

I found my inspiration from Brown Paper Packages.

supplies

SUPPLIES:

  • candy hearts ($1.99/bag.  ea bag yields 4 - 8 piece bracelets)
  • dental floss ($0.88/55 yards of floss.  55 yards yields 30+ bracelets)
  • needle, with large eye ($0.97/18 needles)
  • ribbon ($0.57/yard.  16 yards needed for 30 bracelets.  8 – 3in ribbon cuts/bracelet)
  • scissors

$0.88 per bracelet

DIRECTIONS:
1. cut a long piece of floss.  thread the needle.

2. insert the threaded needle into the heart at the widest part of the candy.  these candies are firm and it takes some effort to push the needle completely through the hearts.  push the needle down on the table to fully insert it through the candy.  continue to pull the needle completely through and push the candy further down the floss.  don’t worry about the floss and needle getting sticky.  it’s all part of the fun.bowl of hearts v2

push needle 

3. repeat the above step until there are enough hearts threaded for the desired length.  be certain that the bracelet will be able to fit over the hand once tied.  girls 5-7years old needed 8 hearts on each of their bracelets. hearts on a string
4. tie the two ends of floss together to make a bracelet.  trim the ends. cut floss
5. tie short pieces of ribbon in between the hearts. Love of God bracelet

each girl was encouraged to wear their bracelets often. 

*they were instructed to complete an act to show their Love of God, before eating a candy (and checking with mom).
