Jelly Bean Visiting Teaching Bracelet

The April 2012 Visiting Teaching Message is how to love, watch over and strengthen our sisters as visiting teachers. I’ve made some jelly bean bracelets to go along with the nine suggestions in this message:

To make the jelly bean bracelets, you’ll need jelly beans in pink, yellow, purple, green, red, orange, white and black. Brach’s has ’em. I used 12″ lengths of tutti frutti flavored dental floss to string them together, and a couple 6″ lengths of blue ribbon (to take the place of blue jelly beans) for the ties.

Thread the dental floss through a clean needle, and place the eye-end down on a cutting board. Carefully press a jelly bean onto the tip of the needle, then slide down the floss. I cleared the sticky pieces off the needle with my fingers after each pass.

Once all the jelly beans are strung, use a clean needle to pierce the floss through the end of a piece of ribbon.

Pull the needle off the floss, and tie the floss and ribbon together in a secure knot.

Do the same on both ends.

Then you can use the ribbons to tie the bracelet on with a pretty bow.

You can package your jelly bean bracelet in a ziplock baggie, with a bag topper stapled to the top. I printed the bag topper from You can then print my colored list from this month’s message, and glue it to the front or back of the topper, however you prefer. Hope you enjoy! You can download the list below:
