Keep a constant reminder of the sunny and sandy summer season with a DIY charm bracelet you hand make! Use Shrinky Dinks sheets and our free printable to create a dangling charm bracelet full of starfish, flip flops, suns, seashells and fish.
Making a charm bracelet with Shrinky Dinks plastic sheets is easy!
First download our free printable and print the design on ink jet plastic sheets or print it on regular printer paper and trace it onto Crystal Clear plastic sheets.
Color your designs.
We used colored pencils with our ink jet sheet charms. The file is already faded 50% but will get brighter upon shrinking. If you’re using crystal clear plastic sheets use alcohol-based permanent markers, acrylic paints and painters paint markers.To turn these into charms, trim your designs making sure to curve any pointed areas. Use a hole punch to turn the cut out shape into a charm. Remember holes shrink too!
Follow the directions on the plastic sheets to shrink your charms in a toaster oven. Shrinky Dinks shrink to 1/3 of its original size and becomes 9 times thicker making these designs perfect for a summer charm bracelet.
Turn your Shrinky Dinks shapes into cute charms with the help of jump rings. Add them to your bracelet to complete your new summer jewelry piece!
