You know what your arm party needs? AN OLYMPICS BRACELET!
WHAT YOU NEED:
large popsicle sticks
hot glue gun & sticks
HOW TO MAKE:
Place popsicle sticks in a pot of bowling water for approximately 30 minutes.
Strain the popsicle sticks and - carefully! - form them into a circular shape by inserting them into the top of a glass jar. Smaller wrists may need a smaller jar - so be sure to assess sizing needs before leaving the sticks overnight to dry!
Once the sticks are dry, remove them from the jar and give them a nice coat of gold paint! Let dry and apply additional coats of paint, as desired :)
Use a hot glue gun to create the Olympic rings!
Add it to your arm party and cheer on your country! :)
Write inspirational quotes on the inside of your bracelet!
Add your country's flag to the bracelet with printed pictures and Modge Podge! Alternatively, draw your country's flag using Sharpie markers!
