Homemade Popsicle Bracelets

Here’s instructions for a homemade wooden bracelet that we’re putting in our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  Are you crafty? Popsicle crafts like this are easy and cheap to do. Please feel free to make a bunch of these and donate them.  If you live in Chicagoland/Northwest Indiana I can take them off your hands.
