I found this really cute idea on HonestlyWTF. Erika uses embroidery floss and sliding beads to expand and fit her bracelets. She explains in an excellent tutorial ~
“You’ll pick 4 colors for each bracelet. A base color, a color for the dots, a color for the dashes and a color separating the dots and dashes.”
But after experimenting, I found the embroidery floss difficult to thread through my smallest seed beads. I also struggled to find the right bead for both ends to slide through snug enough to “fit” the bracelet, and so I decided to simply use basic beading elastic.
Using this online Morse Code Translator and a Morse Code Translator app on my smart phone, I wrote out the codes for some messages I wanted to create in some gift bracelets.
Most my gift bracelets had 3 short words or one simple word. I used the person’s favorite color for base color. I attached the gift bracelets to some cardstock and wrote out the message with its Morse Code. Most folk simply loved the bracelets, but they were really touched by the message when I explained how it worked.
It is a lovely way for your kids to learn and practice Morse Code. Have fun creating!
