DIY Fabric Covered Bangle Bracelets


Hi there!
I decided to do a DIY post on the bangle bracelets you see in my outfits.
Above you have a picture of me modeling a bunch of them. I don't usually wear so many at the time but for the sake of the DIY, I wanted to show you the ones I just made.


So, you'll need:
- An empty Pringles can
- A glue gun or any strong tacky glue
- Scissors
- A knife cutter
- A sponge sheet or any spongy material
- Tape
- Fabric of your choice (42"x3.5")

Step 1. 
Mark around the can according to the thickness of your bracelet. For me, I measured at about 1 and a 1/4 inch.


Step 2.
Using a knife cutter, cut along the mark.



Step 3.
 Grab your spongy material, wrap it around the piece you just cut and secure it with some tape.



Step 4. (Optional)
  Wrap all the bracelet with tape.
I do this because it makes the bracelet stronger. But if you don't mind, you can skip this step.
P.S.: I use masking tape.


Step 5.
 Fold the sides of the fabric to the middle.


Step 6.
 Warm up your glue gun and glue the folded edge of your piece of fabric to the inside of the bracelet.


Step 7.
Wrap the fabric around the bracelet diagonally.


Step 8.
Once your almost done wrapping add some glue to secure the  edge.



And you're done! ^_^


Since I was doing the tutorial, I decided to make a few more.


Hope you enjoyed the tutorial and that it was clear. 
If you have any questions please feel free to ask by commenting.
