How To Make Ribbon Wrapped Bracelets
30 Metal bangle bracelets
30 Charms, gold
6 Crystal bicone beads, 4mm, 6 of each of rainbow colors
1/4″ wide satin ribbon, rainbow colors and gold (30″ for each bracelet)
26-gauge wire, gold
Beacon Fabri-Tac glue
1. Cut a 30″ length of ribbon. Glue one end of the ribbon to a bracelet. Wrap the ribbon tightly around the bracelet overlapping the previous wrap slightly. When the whole bracelet is wrapped, glue the end down.
2. To add a charm, cut a 30″ length of wire. Leaving a 1″ tail, wrap the wire around the ribbon-wrapped bracelet about 30 times all the way around, twist the ends of the wire together two times, slide a charm onto the wire, twist that end back, and wrap around the other wire. Trim the wire. Press the ends down with pliers.
3. To add bicones, cut a 30″ length of wire. Leaving a 1″ tail, wrap the wire around the ribbon-wrapped bracelet about 5 times, slide on a bicone that matches the ribbon, wrap the wire 5 more times, add another bicone, and repeat until the bracelet has 6 bicones and is wrapped with wire. Twist the ends of the wire together two times, slide a charm onto the wire, twist that end back, and wrap around the other wire. Trim the wire. Press the ends down with pliers.
