    Découpage

    Using découpage to decorate a bangle is an easy way to take an old, tired bracelet and give it a new life. You can use craft paper, wrapping paper or wallpaper for your découpage project. Just cut your chosen paper into small pieces that can be bent and moulded around the curves of your bangle. Use Mod Podge or other découpage material to attach the pieces to your bangle and give it a sealed finish.

    Beading

    Adding beads to a bangle can bring real sparkle to your wrist. You can add individual beads in random patterns, or you can create intricate floral or other designs with the beads on your bangle. Use hot glue to attach the beads and cover it with a layer of Mod Podge or other sealant material to keep the beads in place and create a more uniform finish on the final product.

    Ribbon and Lace

    You can use ribbon and lace to decorate a bangle to make it more interesting. Add ribbon bows to the bracelet, or wrap the bangle with a continuous piece of ribbon to cover the entire surface. You can use one ribbon or multiple colours and patterns. Adding lace can make your bangle fancy and dainty. Match the colours of ribbon or lace to your Easter outfit every year. Just remove the items and replace it with the colours that match next year.

    Rhinestones

    Rhinestones catch everyone's attention. You can add them to your bangle in small or large quantities, depending on the look you're trying to achieve. Rhinestones can be thicker than some of the other materials used to embellish a bangle. Therefore, it may be better to use rhinestones on a wood bangle or other bangle material that allows you to recess the rhinestone into the surface of the bracelet. Just make a small hole to mount the rhinestone in your bangle and attach it with glue.
