DIY Foot Jewelry

Celebrate “Go Barefoot Day” with this bold and bright craft that takes less than 15 minutes! 

What you will need:

  • 1 friendship bracelet
  • 3 large beads
  • 3 small beads
  • threading needle
  • thread (and a ruler to measure it)
  • scissors 

Steps:

  1. First, find an eclectic old friendship bracelet! It was hard to narrow it down but we eventually did! 
  2.  Compile your materials.
     
  3. Measure out 12 inches of thread.
  4. Thread your needle.
  5. Insert the needle in the middle (bottom) of your bracelet.
  6. Pull thread through bracelet and tie a knot.
     
  7. Using the needle, thread your beads through- starting with a ‘large’ one and ending with a ‘small’.
  8. Tie a poacher’s knot around 1.25 inches (give or take a few quarters of an inch depending on the size of your index toe).
     
  9. Taadaa! You’re almost done! 
     
  10. Push your (still threaded) needle back through your beads towards your bracelet to reinforce your creation!
  11. Pull back through the middle (bottom) of the bracelet.
     
  12. Tie another knot to secure your second pull through and cut off the excess thread.
  13. Your beautiful foot jewelry piece is complete!  
  14. Enjoy ‘Go Barefoot Day’ (May 1) in style!
