I am so sorry for the TERRIBLE layout of this blog! It was actually pretty nice but one day everything went all amuck ??? No clue what happened....and since I don't really post here anymore I haven't bothered to figure it out. SORRY!!!

Faux Silver Bangle Bracelet From a Plastic Drink Bottle


This is actually a modified version of the bottle bracelet I made last year HERE


Basically, what I did was...  Covered stir straws with glitter, then cut those into "seed beads" that have large enough holes for easy threading.

For the "silver" I stuck some aluminum tape (see source below) onto the bottle plastic before I cut it into strips.... The tape is silver on both sides so it will be silver on the "inside of the bracelet as well.



After I cut the strips I loaded the beads onto the strip,spaced them out then connected the two ends by running them both through one or two beads....add a bit of glue and DONE!  I think an arm load of these would be so pretty and CHEAP!



If you leave the tape off and just add beads they will appear to "float" on your arm, that would be kinda neat if you had a bunch on.

Stay tuned, this sparked yet another idea that I will share soon.
