Water Bottle Bangle Bracelets

Activity Overview

Make an environmentally friendly fashion statement by making these decorative bangle bracelets out of upcycled water bottles. This a fun craft idea for anytime of year. Let your creative juices flow when it comes to decorating. Older children may want to decorate the inside of the top layer of bottle to overlay different designs and color combinations. If you have children in your group who are not interested in bracelets and some who are, use a water bottle to cut and decorate rings for a ring toss game while others work on bracelet making.

Materials Needed

  • Empty Water Bottles
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Sharpie Markers in different colors

How to Make Them

  1. Remove the labels from your empty water bottles.
  2. Use permanent Sharpie markers to color the lined indentations of one of the water bottles. Color them in colored rings.
  3. Cut the top and bottoms off of each bottle. Cut up the back of the undecorated bottle.
  4. Use your scissors to cut through both layeres of plastic bottle 2-3 inch segments and make them wavy if you like by cutting them slightly unevenly but still smoothly.
  5. Use tape to secure the plastic together in the back and to smooth out any sharp edges.
  6. Make several bracelets for a layered look!
