First you need to soak your jumbo size craft stick for 5 hours or so. (Note: the colored craft sticks do not absorb the water as well since they have already absorbed the dye)

Test one of your craft stick by slowly, gently applying pressure to bend it. I put ours in a small glass to take that shape. Leave it to dry thoroughly, about 24 hours. (Note: you will have some sticks break, just make sure you soak more than you think you’ll want.)

We cut scrapbook paper just smaller than the craft stick. Then Minnie (5) painted the outside of the bracelet with mod podge. We pressed the scrapbook paper on and worked to get out any bubbles. Apply another thin layer of mod podge to act as a barrier and to add a nice shine to the bracelet.
