Make a bead bangle
When you're looking to make a quick, fun bangle using any beads of your choice … look no further, this is a great design! Especially fun to make with children, as they can thread all the beads on … and if you don't have beads to hand, painted uncooked pasta shapes can also be fun for threading!

    Step 1

    Depending on the overall length of the bangle, cut about 10” of 20-gauge wire. Using the tips of your chain nosed pliers, fold the end of the wire back (about 2”) and squeeze together with your flat nosed pliers to double up. Leaving about 1” of doubled wire, wrap the rest around the stem to secure. Cut off any excess.
