Bird Bracelet

Make a bracelet for your bird while it’s perched on your hand.

By Jessica Pineda

While your bird is on your hand, it might be tempted to sample your skin or mess with the stone set in your ring. Distract your bird from your skin and your cherished jewels with a fun, colorful bird bracelet! The BirdChannel editors recycled a few bird toys and hit the craft store for this easy-to-make toy.

Create your very own bird bracelet
Distract your bird from your skin and jewelry with a fun, colorful bird bracelet.

What You’ll Need

  • Elastic String
  • Wooden Beads
  • Foam Sheets
  • Hard Plastic Links
  • Colorful beads

You want the bracelet to be loose so you can slide it up to your wrist or down to your hand. Cut out 1-inch by 1-inch squares of foam, and poke a hole in the middle of them to run plastic string through. Slide colorful plastic beads, wooden beads and hard plastic links no the string. (For  added fun, use vegetable dye to color the wooden beads. Let them dry completely before placing them on the string.) Follow whatever pattern you like. Place the bracelet on your wrist, pick up your bird, and watch it chew away!

A necklace to complete the set, too. Add Plastic buttons, leather cut outs, and small wooden cut outs.

Very good idea! Maybe making something like this will detract my conure from wanting to nibble on the collars of my shirts and/or any non-bird-friendly jewelery I may be wearing!

I'm so uncreative and just too busy to think of things like this, so keep the ideas coming! This is terrific! Thank you, BirdTalk!
