Make a DIY Teacher’s Gift Bracelet for your favorite teacher! We’ll show you how with this easy jewelry making video tutorial!
Hi Kenarry Readers! It’s Jennifer and Kitty O’Neil (the O’Neil Sisters from RunningWithSisters.com), and we have a pretty project to share: A DIY Teacher’s Gift Bracelet. These bracelets are fast, easy, and super fun to make with kids!
A handmade gift is such a lovely way to show appreciation. Wrap one of these bracelets and enclose a gift card or add it to a gift of classroom supplies as a little something special just for your favorite teacher. And if jewelry isn’t their thing, get them a candle and print out our “Scent-sational teacher” sticker!
We’ve included a step-by-step video showing how to make the DIY Teacher’s Gift Bracelet. In it, we’ll show you how to use memory wire, how to add the beads and the charm, and how to finish the ends. And we’ll share a little trick to make adding the beads go quickly! We think a beaded bracelet like this is so wearable, any teacher would love to get one. Plus the added charm is a gold star for Teacher!

- Gold memory wire, 2½” diameter
- Seed beads, size 6/0: black, white, light blue, red, & matte gold
- Star charm with gem and jump ring, 10mm
1. Cut Memory Wire
2. Coil Loop In One End
Next, coil a loop into one end of the memory wire using the round-nose pliers. To do this, grasp the end of the wire in the pliers and rotate to make a complete loop.
3. Feed On Beads
After that, you’ll feed on the beads. You can make any pattern you like. To make one like ours, feed on about a quarter of a coil of turquoise and gold seed beads, alternating as you go. Then feed on 4 white seed beads followed by 4 light blue seed beads.
4. Slide On Charm
Slide the charm onto the memory wire. Then feed on 4 matte gold seed beads and 4 red seed beads.
5. Finish Beading
Alternate 6 black and 7 white seed beads. Then feed on a 8 light blue seed beads, followed by 3 black and 2 white seed beads, alternating. Keep adding sections of these colors and patterns until two coils are completely beaded.
6. Finish The End
Finally, you are ready to complete it! To finish the end of the bracelet, twist a loop into the end of the memory wire using the round-nose pliers.
This is a great project to do with kids. Just set out different colors of seed beads, help them twist the loop in the wire, and let them make their own patterns. They’ll be so proud of their bracelets, they’ll want to make one for every teacher they know! Remember if you have any questions about making this bracelet, leave us a comment, and we will reply. We really love hearing from you!
