Things You'll Need
Wash the plastic knitting needles thoroughly.
Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil.
Drop 2 or 3 knitting needles into the pot of boiling water.
Allow the plastic knitting needles to boil in the water for up to 5 minutes, to soften the plastic so that they can be reformed into handmade bracelets.
Place the drinking glass on the dish towel.
Remove the knitting needles one at a time with tongs and bring them over to the dish towel.
Grasp each end of the knitting needle with a clothespin and wrap it around the glass.
Repeat the process of wrapping the knitting needle around the glass with the other clothespins.
Leave the knitting needles clothespinned and wrapped around the glass until the plastic cools. When the plastic cools off, thirty minutes to be safe, you can remove the clothespins and enjoy your new crafty handmade bracelet.
