DIY Project: Aluminum Gold Bangles

June 27th, 2012

I saw something great during my trip to Paris while I was walking down Boulveward Beaumarchais that I was excited to recreate at home. I was passing by a store that sells nothing but painter’s tape and I thought to myself, how cool would it be if I used the tape to make bangles…I realized it could be used for a ton of DO IT YOURSELF projects. I bought a big roll of aluminum foil masking tape before I had a specific project in mind because I knew I could put it to good use. I also picked up some small rolls of masking tape in different colors at Merci.

Step by Step:
Step 1: You can pick out any inexpensive cuffs in your jewelry drawer that you don’t wear anymore and give them a new life or just pick up some cuffs at your local Goodwill. I’m using some old Club Monaco plastic bangles.

Step 2: Measure a strip of the tape the same size as the perimeter of the outside of the bangle and cut it.

Step 3: Peel off the tape and stick it on the cuffs. Fold the sides of the tape down over the edge and attach to back side.

And there you have it. Easy-breezy! After making these, I couldn’t help but think that these bangles are something Margiela might have in their collection. Something about the uneven texture and unusual materials remind me of MMM.

Have fun revamping and remaking! And remember, this DIY doesn’t require a steady hand. Be sure to tweet me and tag me in your facebook or instragram photos of your gold DIY bangles. You can find these fainter tape at any hardware store or even eBay just type in aluminum tape. Have a creative day! xoxo Nini
