DIY Faux glass bangle ... really look genuine and easy to make!

Hi! the 'weird-fun-craft'...for you and your kids this summer!  Yes, a colorful summer's bangle!!!

What you will need...
1.  A PVC tube...the one you use for your aquarium will do...not the PVC hose in the garden...unless the bangle is for an elephant..who knows?

2.  A skewer...or wire.. or whatever thin ..long and hard enough!

3.  Some yarn...or rags..ribbons...any some pieces of rags things will do!

4.  Some oil..(now..this is the weird part...why oil for bangle?)

5.  Yup...that's about all.... so, if you happened to have all above on hands..this can be a $0-fun project!


1.  Cut your yarns...rags..ribbons...into small pieces.

2.  Push in bit by bit into the PVC tube.  You will have something like this.

3. yet done...the messy fun part is just to begin....Now, drip in some oil...olive oil...I don't care... as long as it's clear and clean.  See the color of the yarn...rags..clothes turn so vibrant and some sort of glass like way!  It makes the bangle look so glass like!  Let the oil absorb slowly...this may take some times...I leave it for hours!

4.  Now, cut the PVC tube into the length you prefer.  Heat up one end with a lighter and slip into the other end.

5.  Now let's admire what a beautiful bangle you have made!

  16. Have you ever had trouble with the oil catching on fire when you heat the end? I want to make this, but am a little afraid of a fire...

  17. Help ... I tried making this but I cant get the oil to soak through. I put some oil in the end and let it sit over night but the oil is only in the first section of the yarn. Any suggestions?
    How tight or loose should the yarn be in the tubing? How did you put the oil in the tube?

  18. @shari927Well, sometimes it could be the differ in quality of the yarn. Anyway, you can check out the 2nd alternative method in - let me know if you still have any trouble, ok? Love PC

  19. One of my favourite pieces of jewelry is bangles and bracelets. I like the variety of unique jewelry designs. This Faux glass bangle set has a fun mix of 8 Designer Bangles made with enamel, brass, wood, glass and faux ivory bracelets.
