DIY Bangle Bracelets


While I was home for the holidays, I did a craft project with my niece, her friend, and their dolls.  :-)  Some grownups got to play, too.  We made bangle bracelets out of floral wire, wrapped in fabric.  Here are the directions.  My niece is 6 and if someone helped her with the wire and the ties, she was very capable of (and happy to) do her own fabric wrapping.


And we made some bracelets for the dolls.  ;-)  These were actually the hardest because the doll hands are inflexible.

I made a few for myself, too.  I found that using floral wire is easier than an old hanger as it's much more bendable.  The color combinations are endless.  Fat quarters work really well for this project, and it's a great scraps buster too!  Thanks to the folks who put out the tutorial!

What a totally fun idea to do with your niece. I know she loved making these with her auntie. You are the best.

What fun with your niece. She must LOVE it when you come for a visit. You've made so many wonderful memories with her.

Cute idea! Think I'll try this next time my youngest niece (and her American Girl doll) comes to visit!
