Spike Bracelet DIY

 This is my first tutorial and a nice easy one to make some original accessories. I have noticed neon and spiky/studded jewellery are a recent trend. But I wanted to make a softer more feminine version of this. To do this DIY you will need:
-Spike bangles(I got mine from primark for £1)
-Spray paint(I used Monster paint)
-Double sided tape.

Spray your bracelets with your chosen colour paint. Make sure you do this on newspaper or on a sheet you don't mind getting dirty. Also you will want to do this stage outside as the spray is toxic and very smelly.

Leave to dry for about 5 minutes and spray the other side. You may need to do 2 coats depending on what paint you use. Wait until completely dry before continuing.


Secure the end of the ribbon with double tape and wrap in-between the spikes. I have used a velour ribbon that I think I bought off Ebay.

Wrap the whole bracelet and trip the end of the ribbon off leaving 1cm loose.

Put double sided sticky tape on the end of the ribbon and wrap around the last spike to secure.

Now your bracelet is finished! For my other bracelet I chose a pastel yellow ribbon and followed the same directions as the other bracelet. You could choose any colour/ribbon combo you want!
