B. Original Bangle


The other day I was watching B. Original with Michele Beschen and she had a great idea of taking an old bangle and reinventing it. The first thing you do is cut strips of paper from a magazine and glue them down. I started with matte gel medium and then put varnish on the top for shine. I used an unfinished wooden bangle that I got for really cheap, I think 25 cents, at Michael's. When I saw the show I thought to myself I can make that. So..I got up off of the couch and did it!

Wow, that was great!
I usually watch home improvement shows so if I get off the couch to make something it will be a new kitchen!
