"HOPE" for Haiti Friendship Bracelets

Girl Scouts all over the country have been creating beaded bracelets and key chains as fundraising items for Haiti.

One of the most popular fundraiser crafts are beaded friendship bracelets. Alphabet beads accented with colored pony beads or faceted plastic beads are a great combination. The beads are budget friendly and the projects are simple to make.
Beaded friendship bracelets can be strung on elastic cord, knotted onto hemp, braided or knotted embroidery thread. Cube shape alphabet beads are recommended if you would like to use thicker cord since cube shape alphabet beads have larger holes.

The friendship bracelet pictured features blue and red colors from Haiti's flag, created with plastic pony beads and plastic alphabet beads that are strung onto stretch jewelry cord.
