A fun and inexpensive way to re-vamp old jewellery
This is really easy to make. Simply wrap an old bangle with some ribbon and embelish it with an old brooch. For something more, you can add some paper doily all around for a little romance.

  • How to make a wrapped bangle. Ribbon Wrapped Bangles - Step 1
    Step 1

    Step 1. Cut a long strip of ribbon and finish the edges by flickering it over a naked flame to prevent fraying. Next, take your bangle and on the inside, dab a little super glue. Press the ribbon on to the bangle and begin wrapping. Dab a little more glue on the inside of the bangle each time you pull the ribbon over to the front.

    Step 2. Once you have finished wrapping your bangle, start arranging your doily over it. We trimmed this one down and cut it into few pieces to fit the bangle. Once satisfied, start gluing them down! Next, paint a light coat of clear nail polish over the doily to make it water proof. This step is important.
