I like making my own jewelry because it’s fun and you can customize them. For this DIY bracelets tutorial, I will be showing you simple ways to make 2 different types of bracelets. I bought all of my materials from Michaels, a craft store here in Los Angeles. I believe they are a chain store that are in most states. For this bangle with charm, you will need a bangle with an opening. The one I used came in a 2 pack, by Bead Landing, for about $5.99. You can use any charms you want, even beads with a large opening. Insert the charm or charms into the bangle. Close the bangle. And that’s it!! For this bejeweled bangle, I found a bangle with flat circles for adding beads or crystals, by Bead Landing, about $3.99. Make sure you use beads with flat backs. With super glue or permanent adhesive, glue the beads to the bangles. I used red and turquoise because they are gorgeous colors, especially together.
Now you have colorful bangles for any occasion. DIY bracelets are simple and fast to make. Keep these DIY bracelets or give them away =)
