Snowman Charm Bracelet Craft
The full list of materials, tools, and instructions are found in the printable tutorial card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through before starting this project to ensure that you have everything required and understand the steps and timings involved.
I used to LOVE making jewelry when I was a younger. My sister and I would go into London, to the Covent Garden Bead Shop and stock up on lots of different beads to make our own necklaces, earrings, and bracelets.
It’s one of those hobbies that I have, that I like to pick up from time to time as it can be quick and easy, and gives you a lovely thing at the end that you can wear.
It’s such a simple project that young kids can have a go at making a bracelet too (as long as they’re past the “putting everything in their mouths” stage!). Actually, it’s a pretty good task for improving fine motor skills.
No specialised equipment is needed to make this winter bracelet as the beads and charms are strung onto bracelet elastic, so all you need is some scissors.
This sweet snowman charm bracelet is made using a variety of different beads and charms. I’ve made some suggestions in the materials list, but you could use any type you like, or adjust depending on where you live and what you are able to source online or in stores.
Whatever type of beads you use in your bracelet I hope you have fun making it, and don’t forget you can always share with me on social media – find all my details in the footer of this post!

How Do I Make a Snowman Charm Bracelet?
Just check out the how-to card below with full materials, tools, instructions and demonstration photos. You can print the card out too (don’t worry, the pics don’t print to save your ink!).
- Measure the bracelet string around the wearer's wrist, plus an extra 4"/10cm to allow for tying off the bracelet. Cut with scissors.
- To start the bracelet, loosely tie one silver bead to the end of the bracelet. This will stop the beads from falling off the end when you string them on.
- Use the various beads to layout a pattern of choice and when you are happy with it, string onto the elastic.
- Tie off the bracelet and then trim the excess string with scissors.
- Slip the bracelet over your wrist and show off your new bracelet!
