DIY bracelet-bracelets Are SO Easy to Make
This tutorial will teach you how to DIY bangle bracelets with your favorite paint, paper and Mod-hodgepodge. So cute and simple!
But I excited hope.
I went with a bit of a different color palette this time, but I still have the Dimensional magic and the microbeads. These DIY bangle bracelets are so bright and fun – and I can assure you in the autumn. Here’s how to make them!

you do need to make some preparations for the pentagon bangle, because you have to cover five flat areas with paper.
With a parchment scrap and a pencil, I rubbed around the edge of the shape, a template for the cutting of paper – kind of like pencil rubbings did when they were small.
you Do only one thing? No – I recommend all five pages, and then numbering. I like the forms of my paper to fit exactly.
tape the parchment to your sheet of scrapbook paper and then cut the five individual shapes. The way I kept track is numbered.
If you have a number to write on the clasp and on the back of the scrapbook paper, you’ll never see it; it Mod Podged down.
Cut to bangle the paper suitable for your home as well. Set aside the paper.
Basecoat listed their bracelets to the colors as in the instructions. For the blue floral, I bangle uses petroleum as a base color and then forest moss for the inside.
with a layer of Pink to start. Give at least two coats and allow to drylet.br> The brown bracelet is in distress. You can candle not easily by rubbing a wax, all over the bracelet, especially on the ribs.
RUB and then all the brush off extra wax chunks that are left. Remember that the more wax you add, the more they are worried about the bracelet.
Paint your second color directly over the wax, and the first color. Color, until the first layer completely covered and allow to dry.
you RUB a piece of medium-grit sandpaper over the edge of the bracelet – you’ll find the areas in which the wax is only rubbing (very easy), and you can be the first layer of paint. Sand-more-for-more burdensome.
Add the paper pieces to your distressed bangle with Mod-hodgepodge (also Mod-hodgepodge of the paper on the blue floral bangle). Let it dry for 15 – 20 minutes, then give it a top coat. Add a couple of layers of Mod-hodgepodge for closing the bracelets.
time to add the beads. To do this, paint Mod smorgasbord to the edge of the paper and sprinkle the beads on it. You’ll find here that I used Mod-smorgasbord in an old Dimensional magic bottle, so that I could get more control (I have a very shaky hand).
If you don’t have an old bottle, use a smaller brush and drag the Mod smorgasbord all around the edge.
to Sprinkle the micro beads, let it dry and then turn and repeat. When dry, the blue floral bangle is finished! You still have one step more on the brown distressed bangle bracelet.
Once the beads are completely dry, add Mod smorgasbord-Dimensional magic through the oval part of the bracelet, right on top of the paper. Unfortunately, this is a slow process, but that's only because of the dry time.
The good thing is that you can add the Dimensional magic and let it dry (DM-side-up). Please come back later, and then you rotate the bracelet, add more DM.
means a Total exposure time of about 15 minutes, but on the whole a dry time, this project is at least over night. Once the Dimensional Magic is dry, and your bracelet is ready.
