Collage and painting techniques make this DIY jewelry pop
These DIY bangle bracelets from June at A Creative Dream are made using a cool collage technique and painted shapes like flowers, leaves and polka dots! Incorporating bright colors of paint, you can make your own bracelets like these by collaging newspaper or old book pages onto your jewelry, then painting bright colors and outlining with a think black marker. Seal the jewelry with shellac or mod podge when you are finished, and enjoy wearing this statement piece on your wrist. Kids and teens will love this craft idea.
