{family} bracelets...

similar to a friendship bracelet...
a family bracelet
"families are forever!" (and extra special too!)

to create ours,
we each chose three different fabrics,
then simply tore them into strips and braided them...

for the ends we knotted and shredded them a bit to form
a messy pom-pom...

I like to wear mine with other bracelets too...
a sweet *fun* reminder of my precious family!

"A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
Ecclesiastes 4:12

Hope ya'll have a wonderful holiday weekend!
We're off to celebrate with our family! "See" you Tuesday!
Many Blessings!


  1. i love the connection to the verse this has. so creative! and i think it could be fun for boys too if you use boyish colors. i think my son and i might need to make one. thanks for sharing friend!!

  2. what a fabulous idea to bind them a wee
    bit tighter. :)

  3. oh. ohhhhh. oooooooohhhhhhh! this is darling. truly. but then you tied in the scripture, and i am just over the moon for this! i'd like to take this to my bible study you mind?

  4. ANother great idea, Jill! How DO you do it??!! I bet I know where you are going! Wish we were on the way....:) Lori

  5. Great bracelets. I love the simplicity of them with the great fabrics. And the car in the previous post is so, so fun! Can you imagine driving around in that? Fabulous! Have a fantastic Friday! :) Tammy

  6. I love it, Jill! And just in time for Summer. My kids will love this project!

  7. I LOVE THIS! I think I will make these for my family, and attach that bible verse as gifts! How great!

  8. Very cute and easy too. Hope you have a great weekend Jill:)

  9. I love this! I can't wait to make these with my daughter, thanks for sharing!

  10. I am going to have my girls from my church group make them next Friday night! Thanks for the inspiration, going to buy fabric scraps this weekend!

  11. Holy cow. I just made these with my 4 year old daughter on Thursday. They actually started as a headband, but things went awry when I added elastic, so we cut it in half and made it into 2 bracelets. I didn't think of using the verse as a teachable moment with her, but we'll for sure make more and incorporate it. I have some cute patriotic fabric, so I think we have a project for tomorrow while the kids are out of school :)

  12. Hey Cutie! You had asked me about my new blog address going into your google reader. It should not be a problem!:) Please stop by when you get a minute, Hope you are having a great weekend!;) Lori
