Creating a beautiful floral wooden bracelet can easily be done with coloring pages and markers for a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry.
Here's a fun craft that makes a nice gift at any time of year. Using adult coloring graphics that traced onto raw wood bracelets, creating a beautiful floral effect.
How to Make a Floral Wooden Bracelet
Print out a graphic. You can print out one of the flower strips here as shown above.
Use a piece of carbon paper placed on the bracelet topped with the floral graphic and trace the pattern on to the wood with a pencil.
I also tried stencils and rubbing pencil lead on the back of the graphic but neither of those options worked as well at the carbon paper.
Then enjoy coloring in the flowers and leaves with colored markers. You could also use colored pencils, sharpies or acrylic paints. I used regular colored markers because I have a set of 100 markers so there were many color variations to choose from.
At this point, you can protect the finish with a poly spray or you may want to add a bit of stain or antiquing wax to darken the entire piece.
That is exactly what I did. I really like the effect. To me the antiquing gave the piece a more finished look.
Follow with a protective spray or paint on some poly acrylic, just in case you get caught in the rain with your pretty bracelets.
Such a pretty little bangle for the flower lover in your life or maybe just for yourself.
