Tips for DIY Popsicle Stick Bracelets:

  • Boil extra sticks. I recommend that you boil double the amount of bracelets you will be making. Many of the sticks will break and this way you will have plenty for your project.
  • Embellishments. We used washi tape from the craft store to decorate these, but you can easily use duct tape or markers. Just use what you have on hand. Use your imagination and get started.

How long does it take to boil Popsicle sticks?

Boiling the Popsicle sticks does not take long. It’s the drying process that is lengthy and can vary depending on environment. However, it should not take any longer than 2 days at the most.

How do you bend sticks?

Some might break but it is ok. Remember, that is why we made extras. You will carefully bend the sticks by starting to shape them.

Gently bend them in the center. Move to the edges so the wood bends.

It’s very important you let the finished bracelets dry. I suggest a full 2 days.  I think you could comfortably and easily dry these in an oven as well.

When you do this, I recommend placing the mason jars (or something oven proof) on a baking sheet. You will want to make sure the jars you use are the small mouth jars. I used the 4 oz jelly jars.

Make sure the oven is cold and set it to 200 or 250 degrees. I would check after 30 minutes and then every 30 minutes until the bracelets are completely dry.

If you aren’t sure if they are dry, remove them from the oven. Let them set overnight to cool and complete the drying process.

Keep in mind that if you live in a more humid environment it will take longer to dry. A less humid environment will dry faster. 

Now, some of the bracelets aren’t perfectly round but they seem to work just fine as bracelets when you decorate and wear them.

How to make a bracelet out of popsicle sticks

  • Step 1. Fill a pot with water. Place popsicle sticks into the saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn off heat and let cool.

    Because wood floats, I carefully set a glass bowl on top of my popsicle sticks to keep them submerged in water and from drying out. Let cool completely.

    This normally takes about an hour but will vary. Remove from hot water and discard water.

  • Step 2. Shape the sticks. Begin to shape your sticks by gently bending them in the center. Move to the edges so the wood bends. Place into a small jar, continuing to shape in the jar.

    I was able to put several sticks into one jar. Let set to dry. They will need to dry overnight or up to 2 days depending on how humid the environment is that you live in. Just keep an eye on the bracelets when you make them especially the first time.

The craft sticks bracelets turned out great. 

I’m sure the kids are going to love making these. It’s so fun to decorate them and see how they all turn out. If you have a favorite team, decorate the bracelets in team colors or maybe school colors.

I made a few with mod podge and then sprinkled on glitter. You could probably even do a monogram and seal it with the mod podge.
