Starbucks Cup Sleeve Bracelets {Repurposed Craft}

Fun ideas on how to repurpose a Starbucks coffee cup sleeve into a bracelet. Easy kid craft activity!! livinglocurto.com

Repurposing items for crafts is my favorite. I have been saving my coffee cup sleeves each time I go to Starbucks and I finally decided to craft with them! I thought making bracelets with my daughter would be fun. Little did I know, my son would want in on the crafting too!

So go grab a cup of coffee, and I’ll show you a few ways to create a cute bracelet with that cardboard coffee sleeve and items you probably already have around your home.

Next time you buy coffee keep your cup sleeve, or if you’re at the coffee shop, grab a few extras.

Now cut the cardboard to size, then roll it inside out. You will want to decorate the inside. Rolling it like this makes the cardboard curve the correct way, so you can wear it.

Gather some ribbon, a stapler, hot glue, paint or any other items you want to decorate a bracelet with. I used ribbon for this one. I stapled the ribbon to the end.

Then I made a wavy pattern by using my hot glue gun.

I then found some thin ribbon and wrapped it around as another decorative pattern. I glued it in a few spots.

  5. Very cute idea! But how did you secure the ends to make the bracelet? Did you staple it, glue gun it?

  6. This is a super idea!

    However it’s not really (green) if you are taking extra and not just repurposing your used one.
    Just a thought.
