Anyone with a locker can attest that one of the first orders of business of any new school year is to memorize a new locker combination to ensure you always have access to books and other supplies. There is truly nothing worse than drawing a blank on that combination with just minutes to spare until the bell rings! Enter today’s project: an easy to make locker combination DIY charm bracelet that will guarantee those hard to remember numbers are always handy. Why write the combination on your hand or a piece of paper that is sure to get run through the wash when you can wear it around your wrist and show some school spirit in the process? Read on for all of the details for this fun project.
- Darice Alphabet and Number Beads.
- Darice 3/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon in School Colors.
- Fray Check.
To begin, find the beads to represent the locker combination, along with any other fun words and messages you would like to use. This is a great way to show school spirit by including a team name, mascot, school name and more. Helpful Tip: To ensure the design of the DIY charm bracelet will fit your wrist, take your wrist measurement with a tape measure, and then make sure the length of the bead design is just a bit longer than the wrist measurement.
Cut a piece of elastic cording that is about 2 inches longer than the bead design. Tie a square knot at one end so that the beads don’t slip off as you string them on in the next step. Apply Fray Check to the un-knotted end of the cording and allow to dry.
