How To Make Nature Bracelets With Tape!

Step OneWe started this project by embarking on an adventurous nature walk. This was so much fun for the kids! First, we started in the backyard, then headed to the front. We were having so much fun exploring we ended up on our way to the park, finding colorful flowers, leaves, and other beautiful natural materials we could use.

HELPFUL TIP: Grab a bag or bucket on the way out to put all of their new treasures in. It will keep them from getting smashed in their little hands, and also save you from “Here, mom, hold this.”

Step TwoCut two equal size pieces of clear packing tape to start your child’s bracelet (set one aside for later). I used ribbon to measure my son’s wrist before deciding on the length.

Step ThreeLet the fun begin! Encourage your child to experiment with different color combinations from the flowers, leaves, and twigs they’ve collected, carefully placing pieces of them on the sticky side of the clear packing tape.

Step FourAfter they’ve created their own personal touch of nature’s art, grab the other piece of packing tape you put aside earlier and slowly place it evenly over the decorated tape.

Step FiveHole punch each short end of the tape about 1/4 inch away from the edge. Loop your ribbon through the holes and tie the bracelet to your child’s hand making a knot or bow. 

Ta-Da! Now you have a beautiful and creative nature bracelet! Not only are these fun to make with an adventurous nature walk, they are simple to take on and off, making it easy for them to wear again and again.
