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
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! :)
