I found many of such plain bangles lying around when I was packing my room. I like simplicity, but I have way too many already. Therefore, I seized the opportunity to jazz it up with some DIY work! I mostly paired the bangles up with complementary colours namely, purple & yellow; green & red; orange & blue. After I got the main few colours down, I ventured a little to other colours, as I have a lot of spares remaining. I tried colours like pink & yellow, usually this combination may seem a little off, but I used a nudish pink, and the effect wasn’t all that bad imho. As the saying goes, nothing ventured nothing gained. It pays to come out of the comfort zone and ignore the rule of the thumb.
Things that you need (can be found at any crafts store such as chinatown or Artfriend ):
1. Coloured threads (I used 3 threads per colour. 7 feet each. If you are using mouline threads, 2 will suffice.)
4. Superglue (Optional)
P.s. Mouline threads are commonly used in making friendship bracelets.
Secure the threads onto the bangle with a knot.
Create a loop on top of the bangle with one set of threads
Go through the bangle and from below, through the loop.
Repeat the step II and III twice or thrice before proceeding with the next set of threads.
Repeat till the bangle is fully covered, end off with a knot.
Step VI (Optional)
Further secure the knots with super glue to make the bangle last longer without coming loose.
