Beaded Nativity Charm Bracelet Craft Kit
Attractive and festive
I bought these to make as a craft at my child's birthday party. Though most of the girls chose to go with their own pattern, the directions were pretty self-explanatory.
Someone had mentioned getting more elastic bands at the store. I did, but I didn't need them. The ones enclosed worked fine.

great gift for teachers
I bought these to give to my kids teachers for Christmas. They were so easy to make and looked great. The teachers loved them.

I have been purchasing craft & other items from Oriental Trading Co. for more years than I care to remember -- having been involved with public, Christian, and Sunday schools and VBS for 50 + years. Never before have I felt inclined to complain. Yet, this craft contains poor quality beads, in my opinion. In order to put the elastic through some of the beads, (while making the sample) I had to use the hole reamer. Therefore, I will have to check all (plastic) beads and ream before giving the kits to children to make. What an unnecessary waste of time! In the photos you will see that I used a few different beads (purchased at other times from OTC). The photos may not show you the difference, but it is there. The charms are the redeeming factor! They are small but detailed and colorful.

Bought these bracelets for the kids to make as Christmas gifts. Very easy to make and beautiful finished product. Everyone LOVED receiving their special handmade gift, and the kids enjoyed making something from the heart. 12 gifts for under $8.00! You can't beat it!!

Fortunately I was able to use the charms and beads to create "holiday necklaces" because the bracelets were not big enough for adult hands. Also, while the spare set of pieces was handy, it was disappointing to try to put things together and have so many beads that weren't drilled all the way through. I was very frustrated and disappointed with this product.

Me and my mom were looking at this product, and we absolutely loved it!!!!!!! I thought it would be cute to wear myself, then my mom brought up the idea of what if we got these for the cousins? Perfect! My cousin would absolutely love it, but I would love it even more.

The bracelet was a hit!
I purchased the bracelets to sell at a church bazaar. They are very good quality charms. Although I was short a Wise Man, I had an extra Baby Jesus, which I made into a necklace. I even made up a few kits and sold them to people that wanted to change the color of the stones. I was very pleased with this purchase.

Cute, but not complete
My children made this years ago at a homeschool function, so I ordered them for my 1st/2nd grade Sunday School class to make as gifts for their moms/grandmas. I believe that each bracelet is supposed to come with the clear, stretch cord, but it was missing in all of mine. However, trying to knot the cord that is supposed to come with the bracelets is almost impossible. I went to Wal-Mart and bought some thin elastic ($1.97) that is sold in the beading area. It is so much better to work with. Also, you will need to re-crimp the wire loops that the charms are attached to or else they will fall off of the bracelet very soon. If you are prepared with the elastic and the pliers, it is an adorable craft that is still cheap to make.

These were individually kitted, which made them easy to use. The kids had a lot of fun making these charm bracelets
