This nifty way to make a bracelet out of a recycled plastic bottle is a fun and fashionable way to upcycle. Once finished, we could hardly tell what the bracelet started out as. My daughter loves any craft that adds to her accessories collection!

How We Did It

Water Bottle Bracelet

The first step is a grown-up only step. I did this before I sat down with my daughter to craft. Using an X-Acto knife, cut the bottom off of the bottle and then cut out some bracelet bands. They can be as wide as you'd like.

Next I used a piece of masking tape to hold one end of a ribbon to the inside of the bracelet. This held it in place so it would be easy to wrap.

Now you can hand off the bangle to the kids to wrap the ribbon around and around until the bracelet is fully covered.

You could do one color ribbon or do several layers and different widths of ribbon to create a fun multicolored bangle. Once you reach the end of the ribbon, seal the ribbon with a dab of tacky glue.

We had some fun decorative flower buttons we added on. You could also make a felt flower for a sweet bangle look.

My daughter adores her new bangles. She chose everything about them, so she should!

My 4 year old child and I completed Water Bottle Bracelet. Loved it! I gave her my scrap ribbon and leftover gift package bows. We made a few together and she made more by herself the next day!
