Mother’s Day is coming up quick! It can be really hard to know what to get your Mom when it might feel like she already has everything she wants. But really, can a girl have too much jewelry? An easy Mother’s Day gift idea is to buy some wooden bangles and paint them to customize them in her favorite colors!
I love how cute and custom this gift idea is. Or you could do this as a craft for a girl’s birthday party or something. Want instructions for making your own DIY Painted Bangles? Read on!
I started out with everything you see below and a few other items.
- Blank wooden bangles, available at most craft stores
- DecoArt Americana paints in Teal Mint, Bright Salmon, and Cotton Ball
- Sponge paint brushes
- Pouncer brush
- Decoupage glue
- Glamour Dust
- Gloss spray
First I painted the bangles in the colors I wanted, both inside and out. I let them dry.
For the larger bangle, I used the pouncer to put glue in perfect circle shapes.
Then I lightly sprinkled the Glamour Dust on the circles and shook off the excess. I let it dry for awhile.
I sprayed them in a gloss spray afterwards to seal the Glamour Dust and make them shiny.
For the skinny bangle, I mixed Cotton Ball with Teal Mint to get a lighter mint color (I changed my mind after painting it in the Teal Mint.) I painted it several coats and let it dry. Then I did a swirling and dipping method to get this cool marbleized effect. Watch the video below to see the tutorial. It’s easy!
