Lace & Chain Bracelet Bangle

Hey, guys! I know I've been gone a very long while, but I'm finally back for another tutorial!

This bangle refashion is simple, yes, but pretty too. Let's get started!

Step #1: Gather your materials!

*Lace trim- I'm not sure exactly how much I used, but it was a lot (maybe a yard or two). It depends on  how thick you want the lace to be. Check the lace to make sure it wraps around your bracelet as many times as you want before you begin your project.

*A bangle- It's best to have a large, over-sized one or else the final product may not fit around your hand.

*A chain or old necklace- It should be about 3 times the circumference as your bangle. I say don't take any risks on having it too small. You can always cut it at the end.

*A hot glue gun


Step #2: Let's begin!

First, you'll need your bangle, your lace trim, and your hot glue gun.

Using your hot glue gun, place a small dot of glue on the spot of the bangle that you'd like to begin. Secure the lace on this spot and wrap it around. Place another dot of glue and continue to wrap the lace around and around the bangle with a dot of glue each time. The lace can be as tight as you'd like. I made mine tight and secure for a more simple look, but you can also make it gathered and loose for a more interesting look.

Continue wrapping until you've come full-circle.
 Once you're done wrapping, cut the lace with scissors or pinking shears.

Secure the lace with a line of hot glue at the very edge of the lace.
And, done! (well, not quite...)

Step #3: Wrapping the chain....

You'll basically do the same for the chain as you did for the lace. No need for instructions, really. You can make the rows of chain as close to one another as you want. Just remember to keep the same amount of space in between each one.


On the flowers ;)

Have a great day!
