Today I am going to show you how to make these incredible bracelets.

What you'll need

  • 2 feet of clear plastic tubing with a ¼-inch inner diameter
  • 3 inches of clear plastic tubing with a 3/8-inch inner diameter (sold in most hardware stores)
  • Ruler and scissors
  • Tiny beads or glitter and water

How to make it

  1. To make each bracelet, cut an 8-inch-long piece from the 1/4-inch tubing and cut a 1-inch length from the 3/8-inch tubing (for a fastener). Slide both ends of the 8-inch tube into the fastener, as shown, and try on the bracelet for fit. If it's too big, take it apart and trim it to size, remembering that it will need to slip over your hand.

  2. Remove one end of the bracelet from the fastener. Use a finger to stopper one end while you drops in tiny beads or pieces of glitter -- or anything you like that fits in the tube and can be submerged in water.

  3. When you are done, slowly fill the tube with water, leaving several inches of air so it has room to move. Carefully slide the free end into the fastener as far as it will go. This should create a snug fit that won't come undone without a good tug.

That is how you make a hydro bracelet. Hope you enjoy!!!
