Jodie, a fellow crafty blogger at Ric-Rac
, made some fun, easy bracelets
using plastic knitting needles and a pan of boiling water. Its a fun and fairly simple way to show your love for knitting or simply for cool and slightly wacky accessories.
By simply boiling the knitting needles
to soften the plastic so that it is pliable, she was able to form them around a form to create a cool bracelet. This would make the perfect gift for your awesome and trendy friend that just happens to be a knitting freak.
She does warn that you may want to have a pan you set aside just for this project because the plastic may let chemicals into the pan. As crafters we are more than used to having extras of many things that are just for crafts so that shouldn't be a big deal should it?
The next time you are at your local craft store, pick up some plastic knitting needles
and give this one a try. Have fun but be careful since this does involve boiling water and hot plastic.
