The fashion and design world is in love with candy colors right now and so am I! These Watercolor DIY Bracelets are super fun and fast to make and will definitely add a pop of candy color to your arm candy! (How many times can you say candy?! Whew!) I love working with the Tulip Dual-Tip Fabric Markers, the brush tip really lets you add a lot of color and it’s perfect for creating this watercolor effect. So let’s get started!
TOOLS & MATERIALS:
Rhinestones or other embellishments (optional)
Starting with your macrame cord, make a loop and tie a knot around the cord to make a circle.
Measure your cord around your circle and cut a little extra (just in case), tie another knot on the other side of the circle.
These knots will slide to make your bracelet larger or smaller to fit your wrist.
The fun part!
Using the “brush tip” side of your fabric markers color sections of your cord.
While your marker is still wet on your cord use your paintbrush with a little water on it to blend the marker. This will give it the watercolor effect.
Work in small sections and be careful when mixing your colors so they don’t get too muddy.
You will also want to work a little quickly as the fabric markers can dry pretty fast and once they’re dry you won’t be able to blend them with water.
Let your bracelets dry.
You can either leave your bracelets this way with just the color or you can glue some rhinestones, glitter, dabs of dimensional paint, anything you like onto your bracelets to add a little extra bling if you want.
