DIY: Bangle Accented with Silver Linked Chain

I enjoyed my last day of spring break, so I am a day late on my post. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. It has been raining all day and it is a perfect day for some DIY projects (or take a nap).  I have done a previous DIY on an embellished bangle. I wear that bracelet so much I decided to make another bangle bracelet. I got the chain for this bracelet at this etsy shop. In a few easy steps you can make this bracelet.

Items needed for this project are gold metallic spray paint, shimmering silver deco art paint, large linked chain,  E-6000 craft glue, paper towel, and paper plate.

Step 1- I took this wood bangle that I bought for a dollar and spray painted it gold. Make sure to always spray paint in a well ventilated area.

Step 2- Measure the chain, around the bracelet, to make sure you have the accurate amount. My chain is plastic and to shorten the chain each link can slide out.

Step 3: After the bracelet is dry, apply silver paint to a paper towel. Then lightly dab to give the bracelet a patina look. Don't apply to much silver, you still should see a good amount of gold.

Step 4: Apply the E-6000 glue to the middle of the bracelet.

Step 5: Place the chain over top of the glue. Hold in place for about 10 seconds before moving to the next section of the bracelet.

This is a bracelet that will get a lot of use, especially since I have been wearing a lot of gold and silver.

I would love to hear what you think and don't forget to enter my giveaway here.
