I love making decoupaged bangles. I have found great deals on plain wood bangles on eBay and Etsy. Michaels also carries a good selection. You can also recycle wood bangles you find at the thrift store, just sand them a bit and paint in your favorite color. I often use gift wrap as my source of design because there is such a wide range of colors and finding floral or other interesting prints is easy -- check the dollar store for great deals.

Azslp1842 ... this is alittle late , but i have found wood bangles , in diffrent shapes and sizes at Michelles craft store

I had to order the wooden bangles from They don't have them at ANY major stores, craft or otherwise, in my area. I tried this technique today, and it took me a few minutes to get it right. Using one large piece of tissue for a bracelet did not come out as smooth as it looks in the picture. I tried white tissue paper as a background on one of them, and it was totally lost in the wood. I would have had to do a whole bunch of layers, so instead I painted the wood white.I also painted the wood white and used a patterned napkin as the base. The pattern was black and white, and in order to make the white parts look white, and not take on a wooden-tone, it needed to be white underneath. The first two I did were so-so but the last couple I think will be cute when they dry. Be prepared to play around a little at first! I also added my own little touches, like polka-dots around one of the designs.

I cannot find a good supply of wood or plastic bangle bracelets.
