Plaid Bangle Bracelet

plaid-bangle-braceletI have a fun, simple, and quick project for you today that can also help you with your scraps stash (you know you have one!). It just so happens that plaid is super trendy right now. And it just so happens that I have some leftover plaid flannel from my Glam Plaid Blanket Scarf project a few weeks ago. I never know what to do with my leftover fabric from a sewing project so I was super excited to create this Plaid Bangle Bracelet with it!


This project also utilizes another scrap… an empty roll of tape! I tend to hoard things I think can be upcyled and this acrylic ring has been in my stash for a couple of months now. The roll was from Super Sticky Red Tape but you could also use the cardboard roll from Duck Tape (see my Halloween Bangle Bracelet)

Along with the tape ring and scrap fabric, you will also need epoxy, wire cutters (or a shank remover), and some fun buttons.

wrap-bangle-braceletCut a long strip of fabric (~36″) that is approximately 1-1.5″ wide. If you are working with short pieces of fabric this is still doable, you will just need to use multiple strips to create the bracelet.

Fold over one edge of the fabric to hide the unfinished edge (see arrow) and glue to the inside of the tape roll.

Begin wrapping the fabric around the roll overlapping as you go, continuing to fold over one of the unfinished edges as you go. The other unfinished edge should be covered by the fabric.

wrapped-plaid-bangle-braceletTrim any excess fabric when you’ve wrapped the entire bracelet then fold the unfinished edge under and glue to the inside of the ring.

buttonsYou can leave the bracelet as is or bling it up a little with some fun buttons. Remove the shanks from the backs of the buttons with the wire cutters to create as smooth a back as possible.

Go ahead and arrange the buttons the way you want to add them to the bracelet then glue them on.
