Eco-Friendly Bangles.

I've been terrible about posting lately. :S
I'm sorry. My homework load has been INSANE and I can barely keep up with my own life.

But here's a really quick tutorial (no pictures. ;_;) for eco-friendly bangle bracelets.

Here are the things you're going to need:

-Used glow sticks. Preferably with connectors.
-Hot glue
-Fabric scraps- I used t-shirt scraps and denim scraps from jean refashions.

Step one.

Take your used glow sticks.
If they have a connector, you're going to glue the two ends into it. Basically, put glue on the ends of the glow stick, and shove them into the connector. (You're making the bangle bracelet skeleton here.)
If you don't have a connector, get a small piece of paper, glue one end of the glow stick onto it, wrap it up a little, glue on the other end, and then wrap the rest up. Then glue again.
Lots of glue
(I love hot glue.)

Step Two.

Take the fabric, and cut it into strips, as long and as fat as you want.

Step Three
Glue one end of the fabric to the glow stick bangle skeleton.
Wrap fabric around bangle as tight or as loose as you want, gluing every so often to secure the fabric.
Once you reach the end, glue the end down securely.

Ta da.

Kind of a lame tutorial, I know, but I see a lot of these that have to do with buying new bangles, but I being the thrifty/cheap person I am decided to use the used glow sticks.
They look pretty cool, to be honest. :3
