Phone Number Bracelet Beads

Moms and teachers love this ideas for little ones who are still learning phone numbers. Plus, with home phones, and each parent with a cell phone, there are so many numbers to remember! These cute beaded accessories made with pony beads and number beads can be discretely worn as bracelets or anklets. You can even create a lanyard that hooks onto the inside of a backpack.

Phone number bracelets are especially helpful for field trips or family vacations. Because kids will always have their parents phone number with them when they wear their bracelets.

Our example is made from plastic pony beads and plastic number beads. We recommend using the cube shape number beads because the holes are larger, this way you can use thick sturdier 2mm elastic cord to string the beads. For decorative touches to personalize the bracelet, add cute shapes like hearts, stars, butterflies, flowers, or sports ball beads like football beads, soccer ball beads, volleyball beads, baseball beads or basketball beads.

Halloween "Spells" - Halloween beads & alphabet beads

My little nieces love these chunky alphabet beads and we have been using them to create garlands and decorations for every holiday. For Halloween, they wanted to make a decoration for their bedroom doors so we created a door hanger with “Happy Halloween” spelled out in alphabet beads and embellished with hanging bat beads, cat beads and jack-o-lantern beads, all strung and knotted with yarn. Have fun creating Halloween theme decorations, jewelry, key chains and other crafts with Halloween beads.

We have so many adorable alphabet beads and Halloween beads.
