- Pumpkin seeds (we used a bag of store-bought roasted seeds)
- Food coloring
- White vinegar
- Clear elastic cord (.5mm)
- Slotted spoon
- Cookie sheet
Set out cups or small bowls to dye your seeds. Pour ¼ cup of water and 1 Tbsp vinegar into each bowl. Add several drops of food coloring to water and vinegar mixture. Try different color combinations and see how the seeds turn out! Drop a handful of seeds into each bowl and stir to make sure all seeds are covered. Let seeds soak for a few hours.
Scoop seeds out of bowls with slotted spoon and spread single-layered on cookie sheet to dry overnight.
Cut a 10- to 12-inch length of elastic cord. Tie a double knot a few inches from one end. Thread the needle with the cord and push through center of seed, continuing this until you have enough length of seeds to wrap around your wrist. Double knot the ends together, trim extra cord, and you have a colorful fall bracelet!
