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.
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!
