DIY Fabric Wrapped Bangle Bracelets
I’m excited to finally share this tutorial today because it’s one that’s been on my mind calendar (and google calendar) for quite some time but I never found the time to make. So today I’m sharing just how easy it is to make some cute fabric wrapped bangles that are just perfect for spring. It’s a great way to use up fabric scraps and create custom accessories.
Watch the video below for the full tutorial!
– unfinished wood bangle bracelets
– strip of cotton fabric, about 1.5″ x 24″
– mod podge
– foam brush
– plastic cup
Once your bracelets are dry, you may notice that they are rough and somewhat sharp in a few areas. This can easily be fixed by using fine sand paper to smooth out the surface.

Love the colorful fabrics! It’s a great way to use all those leftover fabric strips
Brilliant going to try to make one for my lovely daughter sarah for Xmas. Kathy england
Nice idea, these look great! Does it have to be cotton fabric or can it be any kind of fabric? A nice way to personalise an outfit, thanks for sharing this!
I only tried cotton and had great luck with it though I think a rayon blend would work well too. If you want to try another fabric, I’d recommend gluing a small piece to the inside of the bracelet with the Mod Podge and see how it dries first.
Beautiful bracelets! Very Inspiring!
Thanks so much Mary Beth!
Cute, spunky, fun and EASY to make! Thanks for taking the time to do this tutorial! I’m a new fan AND I’ll try this for my next ‘crafting’ with my female family members – we have LOADS of DIY’ers!
You’re welcome! If you get together and make these with your family, I’d love to see a photo! Please tag it with #sarahhearts if you post one :)
This is realty a great project to make for birthday gifts or everyday gifts for that special someone. I have lots of fabric left over and this would be a great project….even for a classroom for Mothers Day. Thanks for sharing :)
Fun!! I’ve got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for tomorrow evening that links to your tutorial:

Sorry about the question marks it was meant to be a smiley face!!! xo
Love this . Going to make some for the summer xx
how do you keep your fabric from unraveling and getting terrible strings?
When you paint the Mod Podge all over the bracelet it dries hard and creates a seal around the entire bracelet, including the fabric edges, and prevents it from fraying.
i love this idea!
Love this, thank you!!!!!!
Very fashionable and easy to make. I am sure the fabric exchange has so many choices of fabric for this kind of project.
Love the idea of using up fabric scraps, but where do you buy the wood bangle bracelets. I saw your pattern in a quilting magazine and I am a quilter so loved the idea of using fabric to make this bangle. Looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Claudette

Hi Claudette! You can find the bangles on Amazon.
Have had a little practice, it works really well pressing along one side, hence no frayed edges.
My husband just got into making wooden bangels. So when I saw this, thought I would try it.
