Jelly Bean Bracelet — Fun to Wear & Eat!


I remember having the candy necklace and bracelet’s has a child. With Easter quickly here I wanted to make something different using the candy I had. Jelly Bean Bracelets.

jelly bean bracelet



Various colored jelly beans 

String (I used ribbon 1/8 width)



First  I measure my child’s wrist so I knew how long to make the bracelet, I made it a bit longer so I had allowance for tying the knot as I slipped the bean through the ribbon.  I poked holes in the jelly bean and then took the tip ohe toothpick with the ribbon on the tip of the rbon (somewhat using the toothpicks a needle) and then threading the ribbon through.  I had to use 3 toothpicks because the sugar coating inside the jelly bean  kept sticking to the toothpick and it got caked up so when this happened I used a fresh toothpick about every 4 jelly beans. I alternated the colors with a pattern and once I had the length I wanted I  tie both pieces of the ribbon together into a knot.

  1. That is the cutest idea ever! I love it and would love to make some for my kids!

  2. You just saved my day. My son has been wanting to sew since he has been watching me do it. I bought him a set of plastic needles but had no idea what to do with them. This is perfect!! He can sew and mom does not have to worry.

  3. Oh so cool. I love how easy this is and how cute.

  8. What a fun edible craft to do with the kiddos!

  9. I think I need to make one too.

  10. That is just the cutest and most colorful thing. I love how cheery it is!

  34. My mom saw this and said β€œooh, that’s a great craft we can do with the kids at Junior church”. I was NOT like that. I was thinking how each one of those little girls in their cute Sunday dress would be licking their wrists during the church service and their moms would be coming for me AFTER service. roflol. I love it, though.

  35. How neat! My nephew would love this, he loves candy and would love having it around his wrist so he can eat it anywhere! Haha. πŸ™‚

  58. nicole dz says:

    Jelly beans are good to use for this, it almost looks like beads and not something you can ear. My kids love the candy necklaces, bracelets, and rings. They also make a snack necklace on movie night with any food item that can go on a string.
