Jingle Jangle Look at my Bangle (2nd DIY)
I have always had the terrible problem of neglecting my wrists, something about trying to get wrist wear that goes with my ring collection has always seemed too tough for me. However, when I saw some of the bangles being made this year I knew it was time to start.
These bangles are so colorful and look great stacked, plus they are quick’n’easy to make. These were designed by Rosena Sammi, and can be purchased here. But I bet you have some old bangles hanging around in your collection, which you can transformed for practically nothing in a matter of minutes.
Supplies Needed—> colorful vibrant ribbon, old bangles, fabric glue and thin wire (I got 5 spools for a buck at the dollar store).
Step 1—> Glue about an inch at a time around the bangle.
Step 2—> Wrap the ribbon around the glued area. Pulling the ribbon tight and making sure you don’t leave any area of the bangle uncovered.
Step 3—> Pick a starting point on the bangle and wrap the wire around one spot a couple of times. Then start the criss cross pattern by wrapping the wire in a spread out fashion to the right then switching directions at the start point and wrapping the wire around to the left. Make sure that the wire crosses on the outside of the bangle so it will be visible when worn. When you reach the start point again, wrap the wire around a few more times and clip it with scissors when you’re finished.
And voila, you are done!
Step 4 (optional)—> Make multiples and in a variety of colors!
Stack’em and Wear’em!
