Paper Mâché Bangle

22 Sep

So, I’ve seen a few of these paper mâché bangles about and I thought it was about time I had a go at it myself…

This one was for my friend Lola’s birthday – made with a simple geometric patterned origami paper.

I really enjoyed making it and I think I’m going to have another go for some christmas presents 🙂

    I’ve seen them too and wanted to make one. Yours is BEAUTIFUL! What did you use for the bangle? Where did you get it?

    Thanks Bejeweled!
    I just used an old bangle that I had at home that I never wore.
    I used watered down PVA glue to stick the layers of paper and then I coated the whole thing in another thick layer of PVA to protect it.
    I think in future I might use a proper varnish on the top coat as this would be slightly more waterproof!

    🙂
