Revamping an old bangle into a Comic-Con Accessory


Whist I'm very much a Marvel mad fan I do have a little soft spot for Wonder Woman, so when I saw these old bangles in the charity shop for 50p I just knew straight away which material I was going to use to cover them!

Last year I'd created my own geeky shelf to home my POPs by using some lovely material I'd sourced on eBay and I've been dying to use it again!

Using up my Wonder Woman material
I used a piece of ribbon to measure the width I needed to wrap around the bangle and cut the material accordingly.

Because I didn't fancy using a tape measure

Marking out the width needed for the bangle
Once the material was cut to size I covered the entire bangle with Mod Podge and slowly worked the material round the bangle.

One half of the bangle completed
Because the ribbon helped with the actual width needed the second half of the material folds over nicely into the inside of the bangle and the Mod Podge holds it all in place perfectly.

Brilliant, quick and easy fix to a 50p bangle for any accessories fan - Geeky or otherwise.

Yes this may have been worn a few times to work, no need to wait for the next Comic-Con to come to town.....
