DIY Bangle Bracelet Holder
My New Year’s resolution this year is to stay away from the $10 bangle stacks in the Little India neighbourhood here in Toronto. I know that this seems like a very easy thing to do, but for me this is very difficult. We all have weaknesses and mine are bracelets and bangles. On top of my overwhelming collection of them, my dresser surface looks like a mass of jewellery instead of a tidy organized area. When I was speaking at the Calgary Home Show this year, I ran into a fellow bangle and bracelet collector, and she shared this genius idea. Why not use a paper towel holder to stack them up and tidy up your dresser? I loved it, but knew I could do one better! Why not buy one with a rail around it and rainbow wrap the whole thing in yarn to give your collection a soft place to stay? It might sound crazy, but follow along, and you’ll be a believer in the end!
Materials to Make a DIY Bangle Holder
To make my DIY bangle bracelet holder you’ll need: a paper towel holder, several colours of yarn and a pair of scissors.
Step One: Weave or Wind
Think of this project as a mini weaving project if you have a paper towel holder that has spaces to weave in between. If your paper towel is a solid rod, you’ll simply wind the yarn around it. Either way, neither requires a great deal of skill, and both look beautiful!
Step Two: Knot Your Yarn
Find a starting point and tie off your yarn and begin weaving in and out of the paper towel holder or winding around and around. You can change and replace colours as little or as often as you need. The idea is that this becomes a textural dream and a soft storing place for your cherished bracelets.
DIY Tip: Keep it Colourful
Introduce new colours as you work to create unique designs like zig zags or colour blocking. Consider the colours that’ll work best in your room, and with your bangle collection!
Step Three: Knot Your Yarn
This project moves quickly and gives you instant and really fun results! Once you finish the rod, knot your yarn ends and trim them. Then you can start on the base. You can wrap yarn around the edges of your paper towel holder, or wrap your yarn right across (as seen here on the base) for a more solid and colourful look. The most important part of this creation is styling up your bangles on it and cleaning off your dresser! Hop to it!
