How to Make

  1. Draw a spiral shape onto your tube in pencil, creating the shape that you want the bangle to be. These are going to be the cut-out lines. Once you’ve gone around the whole tube, cut out the spiral. Trim on end so it’s rounded like a snake’s head and the other end into a point like a snake’s tail.
  2. The card should retain its spiral shape now that it’s cut. Mix a little gold glitter with gold acrylic paint and apply to the outside of the spiral (the side that’s going to be visible when worn) until completely covered. Leave to dry.
  3. Stock two self-adhesive red gems to the snake’s head to give the appearance of eyes to finish.

Top Tip

Don’t worry if the cutting is untidy and jagged at first, you can neaten it up afterwards
