‘Tis the season for Christmas-y crafting, so somewhere in-between stuffing stockings and hanging twinkle lights, why not make a cute little holiday treat for yourself (or friends!)? Just dust off those skills from your elementary school days, and get into the spirit with this paper chain-inspired cutie!

 

The things you’ll need:

Liquid Stitch (or a similar permanent, CLEAR drying adhesive)

Ribbon (as many or as few as you like!)

Fabric Scissors

Optional: tweezers, cotton swabs, patience

 

First things first: Snip your ribbon into 1.5″-ish pieces. It’s helpful to do this ahead of time so you don’t lose track of the size.

Then: Spread a little glue on the end of the ribbon (it helps to use a cotton swab for precision), then loop it into a little circle and press the ends together. It’s okay to get a little sloppy, the glue dries clear. Voila! The chain begins…

Keep it up: Loop another piece of ribbon through the circle you just made, then repeat the process above until your chain has reached the desired length. This is where a pair of tweezers comes in handy to swoop into those tiny spaces.

That’s all folks: Yep, it’s that easy! When you’re done, and your glue is dry, simply snip another small piece of ribbon and tie the ends together in a neat little knot (or a bow, if you want to get all fancy), and slip it onto your festive little wrist!
