Jewellery Projects: 5 Ways to Make Pretty Bangles
Looking to create some unique jewellery? Well look no further than our Wood Bangles! They are so versatile - the only limit to them is your imagination!
Here are 5 of my favourite ideas for making pretty bangles!
**Tip: Keep the twine tight as you wrap,
Remember when you wrap your bangle, the inner circle will become smaller - so choose a larger size bangle for this project.
Painted Bangle: Choose your favourite colours to paint your bangle!
**Tip: When painting straight lines - use washi-tape to get a crisp edge.
Stickered Bangle: Let your inner child come out and have fun decorating with stickers! I chose to paint the bangle first then added the stickers.
**Tip: Seal the bangle (with varnish, resin or sealer) once done to hold the stickers on and make it more durable.
Glitter Bangle: To create this bangle, I first applied an undercoat of silver paint. I then painted the bangle with glue and rolled it in glitter.
**Tip: Use a sealer over the glitter to hold it on and stop it from falling off (and leaving sparkles every where!)
Decoupage Bangle: This bangle was decoupaged using glue and newspaper. Tear your newspaper into tiny pieces and coat the paper completely in glue as you apply.
Tip: You can decoupage with any paper. Thinner ones are the best choice. If you choose newspaper - be sure to use happy stories - so you have nice words around your wrist!
