Are you as excited as I am that spring is here? When the weather gets warm and the flowers start blooming, I can't help but start wearing bright colors too. These Marc by Marc Jacobs bangles are so bold and cheerful — and guess what, so easy to make!

  • An old bangle bracelet that you don't mind covering up

If you want to add in a section with a different design, just cover up the ends of the horizontal cords when you start wrapping with a new color.

When the wrap goes all the way around the bangle, finish by cutting the cords and hot gluing the ends in place. Then wrap a small section of cord around the starting point to cover up any exposed ends.
