fabric wrapped bangle bracelets :)


I’ve got tons of projects going on the studio. (I have the mess to prove it.) But every once in a while I need a just-for-fun -super-easy-instant-done project. You know the kind – the kind of project you do for no other reason than because you want to.

Just when I was feeling the itch for one of these little projects, Mark Montano posted this video on his YouTube channel. And all the scraps I’ve been shoving around the studio suddenly seemed to have purpose. Picked up some bangles at a craft store to use as a base and last night before heading off to bed, I made these:



So fun! 🙂 I don’t know how durable these will be (maybe if I sealed them in some matte medium) but I kind of like that they will continue to fray and show their wear. I’m all for letting fabric be fabric and do it’s thing.

Kind of addicted. Kind of want to make a hundred more….



You know what this means right? Every. Single. Scrap. Will be saved from here on out. (I think I need a twelve step program…)

    Hah! Another way to make fabric bracelets… thanks! I recently started using polycrylic to seal mine (protect them from being soiled), and I like it… easy to use, and it makes the bracelets a little sturdier than before. I wrap clothesline coils with fabric, and they were a little soft. Now they feel more like jewelry. Gotta go watch that video!

    Congrats to the winners! I am dnlteiiefy buying one of each come January. I LOVE them so much and wish I could have them for wrapping gifts and such, but I love the inspiration on other ways to use them as well! I look forward to purchasing them and finding new ways to use them!
