Primark to the Rescue - Wooden Beaded Bracelets

You're going to think I am quite mad now …. but believe me, it’s cheaper to buy a new multicoloured wooden beaded necklace from Primark and take it  apart  than to buy  beads or a bead  kit from a craft shop!

The summer fete season is coming up and I wanted to make a few bracelets for a stall, but when I went to buy some wooden beads they cost a small fortune and they weren’t even nice colours!  But then, as I was meandering round Primark, I spyed exactly what I wanted for £4, nuff said, another bargain bagged!

I have added a few beads that I had already had and so far have made 20 bracelets – with enough left for another ten at least.

I know they are nothing special, but put a couple together and they look pretty cute, and for the fashionistas amongst us, they are in this seasons colours!

Pretzel Bags

A couple of people have asked about the pretzel bags that I use in some of my projects …. so I have added this link for today and then will move it to my side bar ….
I have used this seller many times and cannot recommend her more highly (and I am not on commission!!!) – the bags always arrive within a couple of days and a really good quality. 
50 – 2” x 9” bags cost £1.99 + £1.00 P & P – just say Helen sent you!!!!
