Enchanted Bangle

This week I decided to try out the popsicle bracelet project I’ve seen on several blogs. My initial result did not go as planned, as I discovered that the sticks began to stretch once covered with Mod Podge and newspaper. Using some modification I crafted a one-of-a-kind bangle using Mod Podge, newspaper, sticks, tissue paper and rub-on transfers.

Here’s my results:

I soaked popsicle sticks in water for 2 days until I could easily bend the sticks into a glass. Expect breakage so use more sticks than necessary. I let the curved sticks dry for a day and paper mached newspaper and Mod Podge, covering the surfaces. After the Mod Podge dried, I used clips and made a circle. Using more newspaper remove a clip and paper mache the ends together until sealed (repeat on the other side). Dry and paper mache tissue paper onto the surface. Dry again and apply rub-on transfers and add gems (if you wish). Using a paint brush layer a final coat of Mod Podge over the transfers, and gems to seal them in. Allow one evening to dry and wear it to work the next day to show off :)
