DIY Fabric Wrapped Bangle Bracelets

April 10, 2014

Make your own spring accessories and give these fabric wrapped bangles a try.

I’m excited to finally share this tutorial today because it’s one that’s been on my mind calendar (and google calendar) for quite some time but I never found the time to make. So today I’m sharing just how easy it is to make some cute fabric wrapped bangles that are just perfect for spring. It’s a great way to use up fabric scraps and create custom accessories.

Watch the video below for the full tutorial!

Supplies:

- unfinished wood bangle bracelets (I found my on Etsy)
- strip of cotton fabric, about 1.5″ x 24″
- mod podge
- foam brush
- scissors
- plastic cup

Make your own spring accessories and give these fabric wrapped bangles a try.

Use up fabric scraps to create fun bangle bracelets.

Wrap a wooden bangle with a strip of fabric to add a pop of floral to any outfit.

Make your own spring accessories and give these fabric wrapped bangles a try.

Once your bracelets are dry, you may notice that they are rough and somewhat sharp in a few areas. This can easily be fixed by using fine sand paper to smooth out the surface.

Nice idea, these look great! Does it have to be cotton fabric or can it be any kind of fabric? A nice way to personalise an outfit, thanks for sharing this!

    I only tried cotton and had great luck with it though I think a rayon blend would work well too. If you want to try another fabric, I’d recommend gluing a small piece to the inside of the bracelet with the Mod Podge and see how it dries first.
