Magazine Bangle Bracelet #freefromtrash My daughter got to make a bracelet yesterday from drinking straws.  Today I decided that mommy needed a new bangle!

Bracelet Supplies

Supplies:

  • Magazine pages
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint brush
  • Bracelet form (I used a plastic water bottle)

Directions:

I started with a 2″ wide strip from a water bottle (find one that will fit nicely over your wrist) but you could also use an old bangle.  Next I tore out pages from the magazine that were brightly colored.  I found some of my favorite colors Tiffany blue (turquoise), sunny yellow, mango, and green in the pages of the magazine.  Fold the pages of the magazine to 1-2″ wide strips and wrap around the bracelet.  I taped the flaps on the inside of the bracelet then brushed the entire bracelet (front and back) with Mod Podge to seal the pages.  Let dry and wear proudly!

Magazine Bangle Bracelet

Do you still receive magazines in the mail?  I only get a few but I just can’t part with them.  I love the idea in Real Simple and the kids crafts in Family Fun.  Most magazines offer online versions but it’s just not as fun to read them.  Plus, I don’t always take my iPad with me to Karate class when I usually thumb through them.

#Freefromtrash Upcycled Crafting Challenge This post is part of the Upcycled Crafting Challenge (#freefromtrash) that I’m hosting this month.  It’s part of a one month challenge to create from trash.  This challenge will hopefully open your eyes to the number of items that we still end up trashing every day that could be used by ourselves or our kids to create fun and useful items.
