How to Create Wrapped Bangles Out of Old Fabric

If you have some old bangles you don’t wear or are no longer looking their best and some long fabric scraps you can make these scrap  fabric-wrapped bangles.

Materials Needed –  Fabric Wrapped Bangles

– Old Bangles/Bracelets – Long fabric scraps – Washi tape (optional) – Needle and thread (optional) – Scissors

Step 1: Cut or Tear your Fabric Strips

I used an old men’s shirt that was in my ‘to do something with’ pile. I tore it into strips very approximately 2cm wide.

Step 2: Attach Fabric Strip and Wrap

I used a tiny bit of washi tape to attach my fabric strip to my bangle just to keep it secure for the first few wraps.

Step 3: Sew the End or Make a Bow

To finish your fabric-wrapped bangle bracelet off, you can trim the end once you get back around to where you started, turn the end of the fabric strip under, and sew it in place.

If your strip of fabric is extra long, you could also keep the strip untrimmed, tie a knot, and create a bow embellishment for your bracelet.

To create the bow you cut what is left of your strip in two after making the knot and use the two strips to make your bow.
