Bangles are one of those contemporary jewelry pieces whose history is rich with traditions from ancient civilizations. Ancient bangles as old as 4,000 years have been discovered scattered around Asia. These bangles were typically made from seashells, copper, bronze, gold, and other common ancient crafting materials. Today, bangles are made from a multitude of materials familiar to jewelers and crafters alike. In this DIY craft for teens post, we cover 3 bangle DIY project ideas using materials that DIY crafters are sure to be familiar with. These projects utilize wood, yarn, and assorted fabric. Here are the weekly top 3 DIY crafts for teens featuring a painted wood bangle, yarn-wrapped bangle, and a crochet bangle.

Here’s a bangle DIY where you can really test your creativity. By having the ability to choose different yarn color combinations and weaving techniques, coordinate different styles and colors to match different outfits. You can also go a step further and experiment with different materials such as string or ribbons to vary the textures. You can use wooden craft bangles or even reuse old bangles that you find from the thrift store for some sustainable fashion. My Poppet recommends using the fluffy yarn for winter accessories and embroidery floss for spring and summer.

For those more advanced DIY crafters out there, why not try out this full-on crochet bangle. No wooden bangle base is required for this project. Lebenslustiger recommends crocheting bangles from fabric yarn to give the bangle thickness & stability. Another added benefit from fabric yarn is that the cotton breathes so it feels cool to the skin.

These three DIY crafts for teens are the perfect projects for those looking to add some fun, personable accessories to complement your wardrobe for all seasons of the year.
