How To: Dipped Pastel Wooden Bracelets

10 Aug

So I’m guessing by now you can see a theme to this week. I guess I’ve just been so inspired by these amazing sunsets we’ve had this week – I’m convinced that is the origin of pastel ombre. This week I found an old wooden bracelet in the back of my cupboard, and decided the hideous zebra pattern on it needed to go. This bracelet need a new life, and so I sanded and made a DIY out of it. The two larger bracelets are from Spotlight, and are just $3.99 each.

Things You’ll Need:

* Acrylic Paint – I mixed the colours myself for these, but you can choose whichever colour you like.
* Paintbrush
* Masking tape / Washi Tape
* Wooden bracelet – you can recycle old ones like I have, or grab some cheap ones from Spotlight or Lincraft

Make It:

1. Measure your bracelet and divide it, using a pencil to mark it if you need.
2. Wrap a small piece of tape around the line.
3. Paint, paint, paint.
4. Wait for it to dry, then peel off your masking tape.
Note: Make sure you press the tape onto the wood so no paint can get underneath.

Cute huh? All you have to do now is match it with a pastel top and rock it. Here to a new life for old jewellery. Have a fun weekend.

    I think I might just! They’re really cute. The colours are very you :) Also, I bought some polymer clay recently which could come in handy to make some jewellery for myself :)
