Having a real “girly girl” daughter means we make a lot of DIY jewelry in our house at weekends. We’ve already tried making popsicle stick bracelets, TP Roll bracelets, papier mache bracelets and now we’ve added Aluminum Foil Bracelets to the jewelry box.

Aren’t they so striking?!

This craft activity is so fun and engaging for children of all ages – as shown here it’s more suitable for children age 8+ and if you take out the raised twine step younger children will love gluing and layering the brightly colored tissue paper on the shiny foil.

Aluminum Foil & Tissue Paper Bracelets

Materials you need:


Start by gluing the twine onto the surface of the toilet roll, in whatever pattern you wish. The benefit of using a glue gun is that it dries instantly and you can move on to the next step straight away.

Next paint craft glue over the surface of the toilet roll and cover it in aluminum foil, carefully manipulating the foil around the twine so it doesn’t break.
