Earlier this year during my trip to Paris, I picked up several yards of bias tape from Petit Pan. Not being a sewer, I mistakenly believed it to be ribbon and because of that thought the price was a steal! Back stateside, I was kindly corrected about it’s true purpose and application. Nevertheless, I still thought it was rather pretty and so I decided to these colorful bangles! They are a cinch to make – five minutes tops – and look great alone or paired.
DIY binding tape bracelet
These instructions will make one bracelet in about five minutes, plus a little time for the glue to dry.
- Bias tape* (Petit Pan or Etsy)
- Wood bangle in the size of your choosing (Craftemall on Etsy)
- Craft glue
*A 10mm bangle will require approximately 2 yards of bias tape.
Begin by holding one end of the tape to the inside of the bangle.
Holding the tape taut, begin wrapping it around the bangle. Allow each successive loop to slightly overlap the previous loop.
Continue wrapping until the entire bangle is covered and none of the wood is exposed.
Place a dab of glue on the inside of the bangle where the tape ends, securing it in place.
Trim any excess tape.
Bam! You’ve just made yourself a bias tape bangle!
