mod podged lace bracelet

Make this easy bracelet with scraps from your craft stash and sport your lacy light jewelry on a hot summer day.

Project Estimate:

  • Scrap of lace about 8 inches long, on hand
  • Leftover one-step or similar tie dye or fabric dye, on hand
  • Mod Podge and brush, on hand
  • Wax paper
  • Can or plastic bottle with circumference slightly larger than your wrist
  • Piece of tape

Total: Free and up

To begin, cut a piece of lace that will fit around your wrist with a bit of overlap. It should be loose enough to slide over your hand.

Use any fabric dye or paint to tint your lace. In this case I used leftover Tulip One-Step tie dye formula provided via a sponsored post a few months ago. The dye is supposed to weaken over time. However, it worked fine for this project even though it was weeks old.

My one-step dye needed to sit a few hours while wrapped in plastic. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for setting your dye and then lay the lace flat and allow to dry. Iron lace if needed to remove any wrinkles.

Give your lace a heavy coat of Mod Podge. (White glue may also¬†work if you don’t have Mod Podge.) Flip and brush Mod Podge on the other side.

Wrap your bottle or can with a piece of wax paper and tape using one small piece of tape on the edge of the paper (for easy removal.) Wrap lace around bottle with a little overlap on the back. Allow Mod Podge to dry.
