Cute! Make A Stylish Bracelet Using A Recycled Soda Bottle

Cute! Make A Stylish Bracelet Using A Recycled Soda Bottle

I love this craft idea for re-using plastic soda bottles from Innova Crafts. Use the bottle to make a bracelet! Simply cut around the soda bottle, leaving the circle intact. Then use an iron on medium heat to soften the plastic edges so it will be comfortable to wear. Next, just decorate the inside of your DIY bracelet with nail polish…couldn’t be easier!

If you have beautiful paper around, you can definitely use that too! Just measure and cut the paper to the size of the inside of the bracelet, and use Mod Podge to decoupage it on to the inside. The skinny one (pictured) is my favorite — I’m imagining a whole gold and pink theme all stacked together. Ahhh…so cute for Spring and a totally unique¬†look!
