CRAFT: Yarn Wrapped Bangles


In case you missed it, we guest posted over at Flamingo Toes a few weeks ago and shared this tutorial for yarn wrapped bangles. You gotta love a good project that costs under $2, right? This is one of those crafts that you can do while sitting on the couch catching up on DVR'd shows. Love those!


SUPPLIES: 1 bangle, 2 packages each of 2 different colors of embroidery floss, glue gun and glue.


ONE: First, put a little dab of hot glue on the inside of your bangle and attach the end of one of your colors of floss.
TWO: Next, begin to tightly wrap your bangle with the floss, pushing the threads close together as you go.
THREE: When you are satisfied with the width of your first color, clip your floss and secure on the inside of your bangle with another dot of hot glue. Attach the end of your second color of floss with hot glue and begin to wrap around your bangle like before, making sure to keep the threads tightly wound as you go.
FOUR: When you reach the end just secure with hot glue and you're done!



How easy was that? Now you have a personalized bangle that you can tailor to any outfit depending on what thread color you choose.
