Make the Beads

1 You will need to make 5 colored beads for each bracelet: gold or yellow, red, black, white and green.


2 To make each bead you will need one long triangle (10 inches by ½ inch).

Template 2

For printing on white papers.


3 Cut out the triangles.


4 Roll the beads.
Starting with the base of the triangle, roll it around a toothpick. The toothpick must be thicker than your cord. If you are using a thicker cord, look for something thicker (e.g. a lollipop stick) to roll the beads.
Try to roll as tightly as possible, so that the bead will not unravel by itself later on.
Roll evenly to make the finished bead symmetrical.

5 Glue the beads.
When you have almost reached the end of the triangle (about 2 inches from the tip), apply glue to the tip of the triangle. Then finish rolling.

Once the glue is set, gently remove the bead from the toothpick.

6 If you want to make your beads last longer, you can paint a thin layer of varnish or transparent nail polish over them.
(Young children may not be able to manage this step, and the varnish/nail polish will take some time to dry.)


Assemble the Bracelet

1 To make adjustable bracelets, cut 15 inches of cord for each bracelet.


2 Thread the beads onto the cord in this order: yellow, black, red, white and green.


3 Move the beads to the middle of the cord and tie a knot on each side of the beads.

4 With the two ends of the cord, tie two sliding adjustable knots:
Take the first end and knot it around the second end.

How to Use, What to Say

There are many ways to use the Salvation Bracelet as a gospel presentation tool.

You can make a Salvation Bracelet for yourself and wear it wherever you go. Or you can make a whole bunch of them to give away. Use them as conversation starters to share the gospel whenever opportunities arise.

Alternatively, you can make Salvation Bracelets with a group of children as a craft project. During the session, take the opportunity to share the gospel with them. Encourage them to wear their salvation bracelets and to share the message of salvation with their friends.
