I have to admit something.  I’m getting tired of writing tutorials!  LOL!  They take so very long to write.  I am, however enjoying creating with a purpose.  The purpose of sharing with all of you.  I don’t know how many of you are really reading these because I know commenting takes time.  Comment if you’d like, I do love comments.  Or don’t comment.  That’s totally fine with me.  :)  Does anyone else have a hard time reading the Google Analytics stats?  I know what some of it means, but not all.  Anyway… back to the tutorial!  :D

So I don’t really wear jewelry.  Like ever.  But my girls love jewelry, so the other day while at Michael’s I picked up some plain bangles to decorate for them.  Can you believe they were only $.79 each!  BARGAIN!  :)

In this post I’ll give you about 5-6 different ideas to decorate them… I’m looking forward to seeing how yours look and if you create something different!  Be sure to share links with me!  :)

Bangles (I bought mine at Michael’s)

Options for decorating:

Scraps of fabric

Paint

Necklace chain

Glitter paint or Krylon’s Glitter Blast

Martha Stewart Clear High Gloss

I took one of the bangles and wrapped it in plain red mesh type fabric.  I used just dabs of hot glue throughout the project to hold the fabric in place.

Once the entire bangle was covered in the fabric and the end was glued down, I grabbed some necklace chain and wrapped that around a section of the bangle to give it an edgy fun look.

For the next bangle I took strips of 2 coordinating fabrics I ripped from bigger pieces and wrapped the bangle with them.  Alternating the fabrics.

When I was done, I made a small bow tie and was going to attach it… but decided not to.  But that’s an option too!

The next bangle I just sprayed with Krylon’s Glitter Blast spray paint.  Ooooh!  Sparkly!  :)

For some reason I didn’t take a picture of the process.  Nice going Shey!  Here’s the finished bangle!  :)

The next bangle was just painted with Martha Stewart’s High Gloss clear coat.  I like the way this one turned out.  Just natural.

The next one I just used washi tape and formed two triangles on the bangle… then I got a chevron look.  ;)  Once it was dry I painted it with Martha Stewart’s high gloss clear coat.

So there you go!  5 different ways to make really cool bangles.  And I had everything on hand except the bangles and the necklace chain!

So my friends, go forth and make many a bangle!  :)

Enjoy!

  1. um, hi… i need like 20 of these in my life asap. please fly here and make them for me (i’ll buy the supplies) since I’m afraid to fly. :)

  2. These are great! I don’t know much about how Google reads stats. I know that I read everything in my Google Reader now, so I don’t know if it counts pageviews that way, or if someone actually has to open the page on the blog for it to be counted. A lot about blogging confuses me, ha!

  3. hey I love them!

  4. I just love your tutorials! Im gonna make some of these but Im going to use the fabric tape you showed earlier!

  5. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as
    long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog?

    My blog is in the very same niche as yours and my visitors would truly benefit from some of the
    information you provide here. Please let me know if this alright with you.
    Thank you!
