We started with some paper rolls (you can use paper towel or toilet paper rolls) and cut them down the middle and cut them to the length we wanted for our bracelets...You could do some skinny bangles :o)

Before I brought her outside, I stripped her...bow and all. She couldn't care less that she was only wearing her diaper, but this is her reaction when she realized she didn't have a bow in her hair...haha! I am telling you, this baby was meant to be my daughter!

After you paint your bracelets, pin the sides together with a clothes pin while the paint drys...

In fact, when Daddy came home from work work he was greeted by a very sparkly driveway :o) That is another benefit of having lots of daughters :o)
I think someone was very pleased with her bracelets :o)
