We love making recycled jewellery and this bangle is really easy to make!

Please note: this craft involves the use of sharp scissors, and melting plastic. Therefore adult participation is essential.

Step 1:

Mark out the width of your bangle (we chose 4.5 cm)

Step 2:

Cut along the line you have just measured.

Step 3:

  • Paint the bangle with Blo Pens
  • To seal the paint, I used Acrylic Crystal Clear Spray.

Step 4:

  • Set the iron on medium heat
  • Gently press the plastic ring on the iron, move the plastic in a circular motion until both ends form a rounded edge.

Step 5:

Now the bangle is ready to wear!

CRAZZZZZZZZYYYEE! I nevar knew to ever do this. It NEVAR would cross my mind. omg I LOVE my instructables PAID membership. Worth a membership in 1000K's.

Does this leave a residue on the iron? I'd hate for my husband to have plastic bottle melted into his dress shirt. Otherwise, this is wonderful, and as soon as I find the old iron, I'll have to try this very cool idea. Thank you for posting.

The final project looks so fancy but it looks easy to do! Thank you!

The image of the bracelet on the iron looks so different from the final piece. Was there a step in between, or did the iron somehow make the bracelet look cool and not just seal the edges? Thanks.

I sprayed on more paint after I ironed the edges in, and sealed it with acrylic spray. That's why it looks different.

You should add this as well.

Thanks for your suggestion! I will add that in.

I'm also waiting for info on "blow pen" ! :-)

"Blo Pens" They are kids pens specially designed for stenciling and making a spray paint effect on paper.

You should add this to your instruction Step 5.
