Handmade gifts are truly personal, so why not get busy making some beautiful presents for friends and family?
If you are keen to make some inexpensive handmade gifts, then this easy to make charm bracelet will be ideal for you.
The template I used for this bracelet is my own design and is available for instant download in my Etsy shop - click here to find it.
You pay £2.40 (including VAT) and once you have downloaded the template, you can print it off for your own use as many times as you want.
Just think of everyone you could make handmade gifts for on your birthday list - how many are there? Ten, 20, more?
Once you have the template, you will only need to buy charms and split rings to put on them because the beads themselves are made from the template that you can print off again and again.
Unique handmade gifts are a lovely way to give presents that mean something.
Handmade gifts are a great way to show friends how much they mean to you. And when we don't have loads of money to splash out, spending our time making something special instead can be good fun.
Finding supplies for your handmade gifts can be time-consuming so why not visit my Amazon storefront where you will find links to many craft supplies.
These are just suggestions for supplies if you don't have easy access to them but if you are lucky enough to have a craft sore near where you live - have a look round there to see what you can get.
The products listed on my Amazon craft supplies page are a guide to what you should be looking for.
The products are the same or similar to those I use.
One that I can recommend first hand is the Glossy Accents as I use it all the time. The rest of the products are my suggestions but do shop around further to compare prices and read reviews.
Regarding the bead tool I use in the video, I manufacture my own 5mm, large hole bead tool called The Easy Beady. My tools are handmade to order in my workshop and are available in my Etsy shop for £6.50 plus shipping. I ship to Europe and the US.
