Hello, Creators! Fashion is not always about the clothes you wear, it also about accessories that goes with. Accessories are a great way to make a statement. For example, bracelets are a means to enhance the clothes you are already wearing. It can help personalize your style or express something you believe in. For today’s DIY, we will be creating dainty bracelets!
The materials you will need: paper, scissor, twine (or anything to wrap around your wrist), shrink dinks, sharpies, hold puncher (not in image), and a gold paint pen (optional), paint (optional), paint brush (optional).
First, find designs you want for your pin. You can either draw them out and get creative or simply just print out the designs you want. But make sure to enlarge them because they will shrink!
Next, place one shrink dink on top of your designs with the pre-sanded side up.
Now, you can begin to color the rainbow! In this case, the rainbow is your designs.
After, cut out the artwork on the line or leave some space around it. In addition, hole punch both sides of the design to make an opening for the twine to pass through.
Then, place the pieces on a tray that is either cover with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
Preheat your oven according to the instructions of your Shrink Dink.
Now, it’s time to bake the goods for 1-3 minutes! You’ll see them curl up during the baking process but that is normal!
Once they are done baking take the tray out of the oven and the foil with the designs off of the tray to let it cool down for 1 minute. After the cooling process, paint the back of any designs that needs to be painted and let it dry for 30 minutes.
Next, take the twine and wrap it around your wrist to measure out the length but add a few inches. Then, cut the twine from your measurements and cut in one more time in half.
Insert the twine in one hole then tie a knot. Do the same steps to the other side. The last step is to tie a knot to both ends to connect them!
Your masterpiece is complete! These dainty bracelets are a great accessory to add on to anything you own. We hope we love them as much as we do!
