Shimmery Foam Bangles

If you're looking for unique handmade jewelry designs, why not try making your own?  These Shimmery Foam Bangles from I Love to Create are made with fabric and foam, so they are light weight and can easily slip on and off your wrist.

 Shimmery Foam Bangles


  • Tulips Fashion Glitter Shimmer Paint
  • Fabric
  • Stamps (optional)
  • Copper acrylic paint (optional)
  • Paint brush
  • Craft foam pencil holders
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Tulip Beads in a Bottle paint


  1. Using gold shimmer paint, paint a nice thick layer onto the surface of scrap fabric.
  2. If you want some texture, use a stamp and some copper acrylic paint and stamp into the wet surface of the fabric.  The result is a very subtle imprint of the stamps that adds a little texture to the surface.

  3. Now, for the next step your could use wooden bangles, plastic bangles, or anything that will fit around your wrist...but we like to use craft foam because it is a little stretchy and very light.

  4. Cut sections of the foam to create the bangle.

  5. After your shimmer fabric is dry, cut out strips and use hot glue as you wrap the strip around the bangle.

Great idea! I have large hands and it's always hard to get bangles on...but I think this will work great! Thanks for sharing!
