Learn how to make swirl bracelets using just fabric paint! These DIY adjustable bracelets are incredibly easy to make, making them a great craft for kids, but they come out absolutely beautiful, making them also great for adults.
I originally had the idea for these whimsical and stretchy bracelets at a street fair. One of the stalls was selling these beautiful swirly plastic bracelets for something like $20-30 each. The woman managing the stall showed me how they’re completely adjustable. I picked one up and thought it felt familiar. It took me a minute, but then I realized they felt (and smelled) like window cling paint or fabric paint! Therefore I tried making them myself and was delighted with the results!
Fabric Paint (Various colors)
Choose another color of fabric paint and add dots next to the ones you already made.
Continue filling in as many colors of dots as you would like until almost all of the space is filled in.
Take the back of a paintbrush and starting on one end, move it in a figure-8 pattern through the paint.
Let them dry completely and carefully peel them off of the plastic.
Wrap the swirl bracelet around your wrist and allow it to overlap, sticking to itself.
