Bangleishious

I am seriously jonesing for more wood bangle bracelets right now. I saw this idea in a magazine I just got that I can't seem to place and it is driving me batty. I really want to give this artist credit for writing such an inspirational how to!!! If anyone knows what magazine it is please post it! Anyhow I only got 3 bracelets from Hobby Lobby the other day and I made them quickly. One of them broke but the other two turned out so much fun! I really want to close the store and run and get more. I just love the mixed media feel to these totally colorful fun pieces.


I started them by painting the wood with acrylics. Then I used decoupage glue to put some paper elements on them and used prismacolors to highlight and draw fun designs. I pre-drilled some holes and added some bead accents for a finishing touch. Love the Mexican Art feel that they have and I think I may just keep these two for myself! Watch for more in my store and on etsy!

These are some really bad bangles. I love bangles they wear well with anything.
