First you need to decide how thick you want your bracelet to be. Choose between, 2, 3 or 4 fingers.
Take the first strip and at the ends of it make a small hole, do the same for all 3.
Take the first 2 strips and overlap the ends where the holes are, take the other end and pass it through the hole. This way you will connect the strips together. Do the same move with the third strip and you can start knitting.
Start knitting like you can see in the pictures and continue the process until you have 5 inches left, carefully take the loops down from your fingers and secure them by making a knot.
After you have secured the end, tie both ends together in a double knot and a bow, trim the ends if they are very long and you are done.

In our house, now is the time for adorably themed holiday crafts! That’s why we’ve been on the lookout for project ideas that celebrate our kids favourite Christmas characters. Recently we came across the idea of making cute elf themed crafts, which is how we found ourselves looking up all kinds of awesome, kid-friendly tutorials.
Just in case you’re as big a fan of the idea of making elf themed crafts with your kids this Christmas as we were, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas, designs, and tutorials we’ve come across so far in my search.
If you’ve never crafted with actual pieces of nature before then we’re sorry to tell you that you’re missing out on something really fun! We’d suggest remedying that situation by giving these adorable pinecone and felt elves outlined step by step on One Little Project a try! They show you how to attach a wooden bead to make a head and dress each elf up with a scarf and pointed hat.
Are you the kind of crafting enthusiast who loves to use just about any crafting project as an opportunity to recycle or upcycle? In that case, we think you just might be the perfect person to give something like this dancing elf craft featured in detail on Kids Craft Room a try! They show you how to make a funny little dancing character using pieces of newspaper.
Did we really catch your attention with this whole idea of making an elf using upcycled materials but you’re not usually one to keep old newspapers around? Then perhaps you’d get along a little better with something like this empty toilet paper roll craft featured step by step on Homeschool Preschool! They show you how to dress your new elves up with felt and glitter foam paper.
In addition to being huge craft lovers, are your kids also big fans of playing dress up?

This tutorial from Kids Craft Room guides you through the steps of making it and even gives you a template if you need a little bit of extra help.
Have we actually really got you thinking about how much you love the idea of making elves from felt but you’re feeling either a little more crafty for yourself or your kids are slightly older and you think you could use a challenge? Then we would absolutely suggest taking a look at this full guide from Busy Little Christmas Elf that teaches you how to hand sew and embroider a standing elf almost entirely out of felt.
Perhaps we’ve really caught your attention with this idea of hand sewing a cute elf doll but you really would like your kids to get involved in making their own, but you need a much simpler version for their skill level? In that case, we’re pretty sure this tutorial from Happier Than a Pig in Mud is just the kind of thing you’re looking for! They show you how to make it happen using felt, pipe cleaners, and a little bit of beginner’s hand stitching.
Just in case you’re still feeling totally enamoured with the idea of making little elf characters but the two previous ideas we showed you still look a little too hard for your kids, here’s a much more simplified version made entirely from pipe cleaners and a wooden bead! Get the full instructions for making these happen on Line Upon Line Learning.
Just in case you’re still really enjoying the idea of making a little Christmas elf that can stand up all on its own but you’d prefer to use slightly more unconventional materials than just felt and thread, here’s an awesome alternative for your consideration! Take a better look at Project Kid to see how they made this little elf out of beads, toothpicks, and a cork! You’ll even still get a little felt.
In our house, some of the best crafts we ever make are the ones that are also something useful when they’re finished, especially if they’re some kind of toy. That’s probably why these super fun paper bag elf puppets outlined on I Heart Crafty Things were such a hit in our house! They’re easy to do and a blast to play with.
If you’re going to put in all the effort and time it takes to make adorable elf themed crafts, would you rather make something kind of decorative that you can actually hang on your tree?

Even though you’re an overall well rounded craft lover, have you always been primarily a yarn crafts lover? Well, if you love to crochet most of all, then we have a feeling this funny pointed elf crochet pattern might be right up your alley! Big thanks goes to Loopsan for laying out all the steps and details it takes to make it happen.
Have we actually still got you thinking about this whole idea of making some kind of useful toy, especially a puppet, but you don’t happen to have any paper bags lying around and your kids would really like to craft right now? Then we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Kids Craft Room made these adorable DIY elf paper finger puppets!
Just in case your kids, like most, are huge fans of simple cut and paste style paper crafts over just about anything else, here’s an awesome tutorial from Non-Toy Gifts that has just about precisely what you’re looking for! They show you step by step how to make adorable rounded elves with big curving hats and holly leaf details.
Just in case you’re still feeling very interested in the idea of making cute elf crafts with your kids but sticking to the classic kids’ crafting supplies, here’s an adorable idea that will put your drawer full of popsicle sticks to good use! Take a better look at this tutorial from The Resourceful Mama to see how they made these ornaments that also have pipe cleaner hats.

Ever since we were little kids, one of our favorite parts of winter has been making snowmen. No matter what they look like or what size they are, snowmen have always just made us happy! Besides looking cheerful and fun, they’re also a total blast to make. Some days, however, it’s simply too cold to go outside and make a snowman. If you live somewhere warm, perhaps you don’t even have enough snow to make one regardless of the temperature! In that case, your DIY skills come to the rescue.
These hilarious little snowman jars might be the best way we’ve ever discovered to bring the snowmen you love so much inside! Kids Play Box suggests cleaning out a mason jar, covering it in white paint and glitter, and giving it features made of felt, googly eyes, and buttons. Pop some seasonal winter flowers or sparkly branches in the top when you’re done and you’ve got yourself a new centre piece for the dinner table!
Whether you have large coffee cans or smaller tin cans, save them and clean them out for snowman crafting purposes! Cover the cans in white paint and glitter or faux snow flakes and string them together just like Hands On As We Grow did here. Add a cute little face made of pom poms and pipe cleaners and give him a scarf so he’s all ready to hang up!
When we craft with our kids, their favourite projects are always the ones where they get to use unconventional materials. Even if the special tool is a simple household ware like cotton balls, kids always feel like they’re getting a special treat when they get to glue fun things together in new ways. That’s why we love making these cute little cotton snowmen by Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas together every year!
Did you love the idea of making DIY puffy paint but your kids are little enough that you still try to avoid glitter when it come to crafting time because you know you’ll find it still ground into the carpet and the couch in July? Here’s a plain white version for you to paint snowmen with instead! Tips From a Typical Mom shows you how to make it out of shaving cream and white school glue.
Are you looking for a simple cut and paste type craft that’s still snowman themed enough to keep your kids happy, busy, and festive? Then collages are definitely the answer! We love the way Reading Confetti kept things easy by using colours, textures, and pictures cut out of magazine pages to jazz up a simply drawn pencil snowman.
Perhaps your kids especially loved the idea of making cotton ball snowmen but they’re ready for something a little more challenging than just sticking them to a page? Check out how Hands On As We Grow made paper finger puppets shaped like snowmen and covered in cotton snow, beaded features, and yarn scarves!
Maybe you’re happy about the idea of upcycling bathroom supplies into kids’ crafts but you don’t have any cotton balls right now and your kids need to craft their way through a snow storm? Well, the toilet paper rolls that you’ve been meaning to recycle will do just fine! Grab some white paint, buttons, pom poms, ribbons, and whatever else you think will work well and deck your snowmen out just like Crafts by Courtney did here!
Whenever our kids craft, we usually end up hanging their finished master pieces somewhere in the house. That’s why we love finding crafts for them to make that are actually meant to be decor! These little snowman shaped sun catchers are the perfect example. Craftulate shows you how they’re done so you can appreciate the sun shining through your kitchen window just a little bit more on a chilly winter’s morning.
Maybe you and the kids have decided to make cute Christmas cupcakes together but there are certain parts of the process that they’re still just a little bit too young to help with? Instead of letting them get antsy just watching you, put them to work on something else! I Heart Crafty Things suggests handing them a few cupcake liners right from the pack you’re filling with batter and letting them cut and paste using the liners as the circles for their snowmen. We love the button embellishments!
10. Torn paper snowman
VIEW IN GALLERY
Maybe all you have to work with besides glue and buttons are some sheets of paper and some scissors? That’s still enough to make an awesome craft! This DIY idea will be especially appealing to your kids because part of the fun is tearing the white paper into little pieces before they stick it down. Check out the details on Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog’s Tails!
Did you like the idea of a cupcake liner craft because it lets your kids work with something that’s already circular and easy to transformed into a snowman, but you don’t have any cupcake liners right now? Take a leaf out of Hands On As We Grow‘s book and give your kids some cotton pads from your beauty cabinet instead!
Making a rubbery window cling is easier than it might sound! In fact, Rockabye Butterfly is here to show you how you can make one using simple school glue as a base. As if playing with glue isn’t a fun enough idea for your kids, think about how excited they’ll be to decorate it afterwards! You’ll be just as happy as them to hang their hard work in your window for the holidays.
Sometimes a simple cut, paste, and paint is the best craft for a chilly day because you can simply dig into the craft supplies you’ve already got stashed away at home. Even then, however, we often find that our kids have more fun if we add another layer of DIY to the mix. That’s why we were happy to find this idea from House of Burke for making your own paint! Check out their tutorial to see how they used salt to get the job done.
Does the idea of using salt for crafting intrigue you because you have a massive bulk sized container of it and because your kids love food crafts, but you’re not sure they’ll be super excited about yet another paint craft because they paint all the time? Then Childhood Beckons has the perfect alternative for you- creating a snowman with actual salt! We love the realistic texture it gives the whole thing.
15. Bubble wrap painted snowman
VIEW IN GALLERYIf you’ve ever tried bubble wrap painting with your kids for other seasons or just for fun then you already know what a blast it is, and the holidays are no exception. Help your kids cut out some bubble wrap circles, then paint them white and print them onto your page just like Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds did here. If you’re anything like us, you’ll also have fun popping some of the leftover bubble wrap when you’re done!
When it comes to knitting for those you love, choosing a colour and a pattern can be difficult. Not only do you have to choose and colour and a style or garment that you know the person will like, but you also want to make sure that it’s a project you’ll enjoy making as well!
To help you out with at least a couple of the people in your life, here are some of our favourite patterns for dads, husbands, sons, brothers, and boyfriends!
All Free Knitting guides you through the process of knitting a simple cotton tie. The stitch is subtle, letting you get as neutral or as crazy with the colour as you like (or, rather, as the person you’re making it for will like)! Home knitted ties might not sound very formal, but we think they actually look quite smart paired with a nice outfit for a special occasion.
If you ask us, there’s no such thing as “too many warm hats”. So, if you want to knit your beloved something nice, simple, and practical, this striped hat pattern from Red Heart is definitely a safe bet! Choose his two favourite colors or perhaps two colours that match his winter coat well.
Besides the hilarious name, there’s a lot to love about this fingerless glove pattern! It’s simple, it’s visually very nice, and it’s also a useful gift for any man who’s always working with his hands in some way, even in the winter. Get the full patter from The Blue Brick!
The Purl Bee reminds you that, for some men’s style preferences, you should operate on the mantra “the chunkier, the better”. That’s why we love this pattern so much! It’s made of chunky wool, but it’s also done using a “mistake stitch”, which gives you nice, thick ridges as well.
Is your loved one a total tech addict who’s never found far from his tablet? Consider knitting something for his favourite gadget instead of for him! We love this funny little tablet turtleneck pattern by Just B Crafty. If his technology is his favourite thing, then he might actually use this more than he would if you made him a sweater!
Besides looking like funny little bottle sweaters, these drink covers are a quick project that you can make for many people in a short amount of time! They make great stocking stuffers for Christmas and pretty much anyone can use them, but the beer drinkers in your life will probably like them best. Get the quick, easy instructions on Knits by Britt.
Does the man in your life need a new hat and a new scarf? Take care of both at once by knitting him a matching set, like this nice one from Bernat. they’re simple enough that you can choose a brighter colour if you think he’d like that, but the stitches also look classic and nice in a neutral shade if that’s more his style.
If you do a simple search of men’s sweater patterns, you’ll usually find a lot of crew neck styles. What if that’s not really what your husband or son prefers to wear? Luckily for us all, Tricksy Knitter offers this great hooded pattern that looks just as smart as the others once it’s on, but still has the good those other sweaters are missing!
Is your dad the kind of man who can almost always be found on the golf green if he’s not at home? Knit him something he’ll actually use! We love these simple golf club covers by Purl Soho and we’d be willing to bet that he’ll love them too.
Yuko Nakamura suggests making and gifting these simple slip-on slippers that are great for throwing on in the evening when the temperature cools down a little bit. These are a great opportunity to knit your husband or son something in a crazier colour than he’d usually wear because only his immediate family will see them!
As evidenced by the name of this awesome pattern, Sew Wrong knows just how many girlfriends knit their boyfriends warm scarves in the winter! We’re crazy about this simple but very masculine pattern and we’re sure he will be too.
Perhaps you’re aiming to make something a little smarter looking than a hoodie, but still casual enough for comfort? We’re pretty sure that’s the reason knitted vests were invented! This pattern is quite simple to do, particularly if you already have experience knitting vests and sweaters. Check it out on Red Heart!
Very Shannon reminds you how much fun it can be to knit the occasional gag gift! We’re pretty sure this mustache coffee cozy with look hilarious on your husband, brother, or whoever you give it to whether they have an actual mustache of their own or not.
Do you like the idea of a knitted tie but you’re pretty sure bow ties are more his style than long ones? Amy B Stitched has you covered with a simple, classy bow tie knitting pattern that he’s sure to love!
