  • 1.

    On white construction paper, use Crayola® Twistables™ to color bright patterns. Use as many colors as you like, and leave some of the white paper plain. Cut your paper into several thin strips with Crayola Scissors.

  • 2.

    Cover your art area with newspaper. Use Crayola Watercolors and Watercolor Brushes to paint a thin wash of color over the colored strips. Make strips in different colors. Air dry flat.

  • 3.

    Choose one strip for your main wristband. Cut it slightly longer than your wrist. With a Crayola Glue Stick, attach the beginning ends of other, thinner strips to the main strip. Air dry.

  • 4.

    Wrap the thin strips around the original strip. Glue the ends of the strips in place to the bottom of the main wristband. Air dry.

  • 5.

    Trim all strips to fit the original strip. Trim one end of all of the strips, including the original one, into a point. To wear your wristband, tuck the point under the wrapped strips at the other end.
