Ready for a seriously budget-friendly fix for your accessory addiction? All you need for these cute bangles are pipe clamps, scissors, and a strip of bright fabric or ribbon.
First, take a trip to your local hardware store, walk right down the plumbing aisle, and pick out pipe clamps that fit comfortably around your arm. Don’t feel weird about adding to your wardrobe in the hardware store, it’s full of glitter and shine just like your other fav stores –promise! You may have to tighten or loosen the pipe clamps by adjusting the screws. Take the ribbon or strip of fabric you want to use and loop it onto the pipe clamp, then continue to wrap it around, covering the entire pipe clamp. Then just knot the end of the fabric and clip off any remaining.
Try covering a bright color with lace, using a pretty floral,
Or a cute Aztec-inspired pattern like the one on this skirt.
