Tubular Bracelet (bhg.com)

Clear tubular plastic bracelets with beads and glitter inside

Cut vinyl tubing into a 10-inch-long piece. For a connector, cut a 1-inch-long piece from smaller tubing that fits snugly into the longer piece. Slide the small piece 1/2 inch into one end of the longer piece. Use a funnel to fill the long piece with candy, beads, or glitter. Bend the long piece into a circle. Slide the open end over the exposed end of the connector to complete the bracelet.

  1. So cute! I was at home depot and actually remembered to buy the tubing! Now to find some candy that will fit. Maybe tictacs would be fun in different colors.

  8. I bought the tubing at Lowe's, but there is black printing on the entire 6 ft piece. I tried both kinds of nail polish remover, but neither took it off. Has anyone else had this issue?
