Paper Bangles

I feel like I’m on a decoupage trend lately and my new obsession… paper bangles.

If your not interested in taking on a larger project these paper covered bracelets are the perfect thing. To help inspire you and show you how gorgeous the results can be here are some of my favorite etsy finds.

If you are interested in making a bangle of your own I found this super simple how-to from Martha Stewart

Step 1 

Whitewash bangle: Dampen paper towel or rag, and dip it into paint. Smooth paint onto the surface of the bangle, inside and out. Let dry.

Step 2 

Balance the bangle on a small bowl. For each stripe, brush one side of tissue with the adhesive, and smooth the strip onto the bangle. Leave the excess tissue at inner edge. Let dry.

Step 3 

Trim excess tissue using craft knife. Brush adhesive over outside of bracelet to seal. Let dry.
