These colorful bangles are an easy to make recycled craft and perfect for a teenager or preteen! All you need are inexpensive bangle bracelets and some old t-shirts to make these pretty fashion statements. These would be a great girl scout craft or camp craft as well. Because the braided material will make the opening of the bangle smaller, it’s important to get bracelets that are big enough to allow room for your wrist to get through the finished bracelet. For example, due to my plus size frame, my wrists are considerably larger than my teenage daughter’s. Therefore, the bracelets fit her great while I was unable to get them on. [Full printable instructions below] Cut t-shirt material into strips, braid them together and wrap them around a metal bangle. Secure with hot glue!
