Introduction: Snake Bracelet
I really like snakes, so I decided to make a bracelet, which looks like a snake, cheap, but nice.
Step 1: What You Will Need
First of all, what you will need:
-gold spray paint
-tin plate (I used 40mm by 10mm)
-different kind of sandpapers
-universal drill (it will be used for sanding, so it's good if you have different tipe heads)
-'fake diamonds' Thease are little stickable pieces of plastic, which look like diamonds. You will need two bigger one, which are different color (I used purple)
Step 2: Measure
The first step is to measure the wrist you want to make the bracelet for. I measured 15.5 centimeters.
Step 3: Draw
As you can see in the picture i drew a 1 centimeter wide, 15.5 centimeters long line and then added 1 centimeter at the end to the perfect lenght. After that I drew a snake head and a snake tail shape, then I used the markers to highlight the best line.
Step 4: Cut It Out
Now you can cut the snake shape out with the plate shears. Be careful with the round lines.
Step 5: Making the Shape
You can make it round very easily on the bottle of the spray paint, but you will need to use your hands to, because the bottle is too thick. There are sharp edges, so it's time to use your drill to sand it, so it won't hurt your wrist.
Step 6: Fill and Sand
You have folded the bracelet in shape, so you can fill it. After 1-2 hours you can sand it too.
Repeat it four times or more if it's necessary. It doesn't have to be perfect after the first coat.
You can use your finger to add more filler to the smaller parts.
Step 7: Painting
In this step you have to paint the bracelet with the spray paint on a paper you don't need. You can add about two coats.
Step 8: Decorate
Now here comes my facourite part. You stick the 'fake diamonds' on the bracelet. You can use universal glue and tweezers to stick them in place. I started with the eyes.
Step 9: Wear :)
Now you have finished with the snake bracelet. I hope you enjoyed making it as much as I did.
We have a be nice policy.
