How to make YOUR own wooden bangle

 

 

  • tall glass of water (for soaking)
  • mug (for molding)
  • jumbo sized popsicle/craft sticks
  • awl or piercing tool
  • hemp beading cord #20
  • scissors
  • assorted colors washi tape

 

 

 

Start off by soaking the popsicle sticks in water, immersed fully, for at least TWO DAYS, until they are pliable enough to mold.  I added a ceramic plate on top to keep them down, because they will float to the top.
After a couple of days soaking, pull them out of the water and begin carefully molding them into a bracelet shape.  You may want to do this process fast, but don’t.  Bend them slowly, because they will break – I broke THREE!
Place the molded sticks in your mug (one that is the right width to fit your wrist).
Next, is more waiting.  One day is sufficient drying time if the mug is placed in the sun, otherwise it must dry for two days to mold fully.

 

 

 

Now, the FUN part – decorating your bracelets!
Wrap the washi tape around the bracelet using approximately two inch strips to go all the way around, leaving room at the end.
What helped V a lot was ripping off several strips of washi tape at a time, and placing them on the table for her to add to her bracelet in the order she wanted.
While V worked on her two bracelets, I made two bracelets of my own :)
