Cheapalicious DIY: Fabric wrapped bangle

I decided to do a quick, simple little DIY on this lovely Saturday. Remember that lovely floral print skirt that I thrifted a few weeks ago from Super Thrift?  Since it didn't fit me, and I didn't really want to part with it because the print is so pretty, I decided to re-purpose it.  Hey, it was only $1, so I don't feel bad for cutting it up.

You know how much of an accessories junkie I am, so I decided to take some old bangles that I didn't wear  anymore and make them "new" for spring.

What you need:
  • Fabric
  • Bangles.  I used some old plastic bangles that I had laying around, but wooden bangles would work also.
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun.  I used E-6000 for the first bangle, but ended up using my hot glue gun on the second bangle because the E-600 got clogged up.  The hot glue gun worked better, though.



What to do:

Cut a strip of fabric long enough to wrap around the bangle.



Put a dab of glue on the inside of the bangle. Press end of fabric strip onto the glue and wrap the fabric over.   Put another dab of glue on the outside of the bangle where the fabric will overlap.  Continue this method until you're done.



Voila!
