Free Instructions: Ladder Bracelet

Free Instructions Ladder Bracelet

Get bead weaving with pony beads! A fun, tactile bracelet... we designed a stripy design, but you could do anything you like! Which colours will you go for? A great project for little beaders, it may require a little teamwork with an adult.

Materials Needed: 1.5 cotton covered elastic (we used EL13), 66 pony beads in total - to make an approx 7.5” bracelet. We choose to use 33 mixed colour beads ( PLCN), and 33 opaque grey beads (PLCG19).


Legend:A= Mixed colours of Pony beads, B= grey pony beads

Tools Needed: a sharp pair of scissors (SCIMX).

Instructions

  1. Thread 3A, 3B onto your elastic, leaving a 10cm tail (photo 1)
