Cute and Colorful Floss Bracelets.

Aloha Crafters,

Today’s Idea and Inspiration, I will be sharing with you how to make cute and colorful floss wrapped charm bangles. They’re super easy, fun and anyone can do it.

DMC embroidery floss in your colors of choice.
5MM jump rings (30102572)
Memory wire bracelet (30061087)                                                               
Tea party charms (30142787) (or your charms of choice)
22G silver wire (30085091)
Wire cutters
Needle nose pliers

To begin, let’s start by cutting our memory wire. For this bangle I cut 3 wraps of wire. When that’s done, let’s form our bangle and wire wrap the ends together. You can add a bit of glue for a little more security. Once we have our bangle shaped, and our ends wrapped, we can start with our floss. Start by picking a spot to begin, and add a little glue and start wrapping your bangle. In the beginning make sure that you are wrapping tight over the glue so nothing falls apart. Keep wrapping until you have just a little bit left to wrap. Add a little more glue and wrap tightly to finish our wrapping. Next, add your charms and your jump rings to the bracelet and you’re done!

Now you have a colorful set of bracelets that you can wear, or even give as a gift!

Happy Crafting!
