I made seed bead bracelets recently and went down memory lane on how I loved making crafts as a kid. I used to make bracelets with fish tank tubing, air connectors, and filled with seed beads. The connectors never fit right but I found some tubing that fits the connectors perfectly!!

Tube glitter ???? I don't know how I've never heard or seen this but I instantly bought a bunch. 

I found the tubing at Home Depot and the connectors on Amazon
I tried to order the tubing online but it had small black writing with the product info all over the tubing. That doesn't make for pretty bracelets.

Tube glitter from Dollar Tree.

I found these multi color packages of tube glitter at Dollar Tree for only $1!!! 
The SAME EXACT glitter (and so much less) would be $12 at Michael's for three colors.

Measure tubing around your wrist for size and cut. 
I made several at 8" long.

Insert the connector.

Now the fun part! Fill with glitter, beads, sprinkles, chunky glitter, tube glitter, jewels, confetti, glass glitter, microbeads or anything else that will fit! 
Please share if you use something else!

I made a paper type funnel for the tube glitter since it's so chunky. It does get stuck so you have to tap the tube with a pencil to get it to move down. You may need to squeeze gently and tap again. 

Insert the connector in the other end of the tube and you're done!
You could add some glue but I had a hard time pulling the bracelet apart without glue.

I also made a couple with fine glitter that I found at the same time. 

Fine glitter is definitely easier to fill than the tube glitter. I tried cutting a tiny piece off the corner of the glitter package to fill. It worked out okay but very slow.

 I didn't have a glitter/craft funnel but this worked perfectly! I had the idea when I was filling the mini fairy jars with glitter. Wilton cake decorating tip #5. Lol!

Tap the tube to get the glitter to move down. Close and you are done. 
With so many different types of glitter the creative opportunities are endless. 

So easy and they turned out super cute.

I have a ton of extra supplies and might make some DIY kits with everything to create.
