Plastic Bottle Bracelets

youtube Innova Crafts Plastic Bottle Bracelets

I have presented my knitted or crocheted bangles from plastic bottles previously.
They are great and can be adapted in size.
But if you don’t want to cover them with knitting or crochet, try these plastic bottle bracelets :)

Plastic Bottle and Button Bracelet

I’ve really taken a shine to this simple bracelet from a piece of a plastic bottle and a matching button. With the plain hole pattern at the edge I find it really nice.

Do you remember the plastic bottle beads?
The bracelet with recycled plastic beads has been made the same way – and I find it really beautiful!

Bracelets with Colouring Pages

Persia Lou Day Bracelets with Colouring Pages

These bracelets with colouring pages are great!
There you transfer the painted colouring pages to the bracelets.
If this also works with a self-made bracelet from recycled paper or with a bracelet from a recycled plastic bottle?
Well, and when you don’t like or make bracelets, take a look at what else you can make with colouring pages :)

Plastic Bottle Art

OTYGLIGT

If you still have plastic bottles after you’ve made embroidered plastic bottle bracelets you can make you some plastic bottle art :)
It remembers me of the plastic bottle vase and the plastic bottle owl vases – that way everybody can live out their style with similar techniques :)

Knitted/Crocheted Bangles

unikatissima Knitted Bangle
Recently I wanted to make some knitted napkin rings as a gift and looked for a way to 1. keep their shape and 2. make them washable.
And I really found a solution which is also great for making bangles ;-)): use a core of recycled plastic bottle and a knitted or crocheted all over cover.

 

That’s what you do:
unikatissima Knitted Bangle Cut rings in the desired width from a plastic bottle.
I cut here two rings because the circumference of the bottle was too small for a bangle for me.

 

unikatissima Knitted Bangle Where the rings are to be joined you need an overlap of about 2 cm.
I pricked 3 holes with a pointy needle and threaded the yarn I used later for knitting through them to fix both sides. The big advantage is that you don’t see anything of this later.

 

unikatissima Knitted Bangle Then knit the ‘cover’. I worked with quite thick acrylic yarn and began with a stocking stitch part for the inside whereas outside I used a moss stitch pattern.
Depending on the used yarn the inside diameter can get a good deal narrower, in this case make the plastic rings a little bit larger.
When the cover is finished sew the sides together.

 

unikatissima Knitted Bangle That’s how the finished bangle looks.
Originally I wanted to have the seam at the inside of the bangle but I ‘produced’ always a thick bulged seam. Therefore I knitted the ‘folding line’ between both patterns with purls and sew at the rim (which is much easier, too ;-)).
The bulged seam looks similar to the purled row and now I like it.

 

unikatissima Knitted Bangle The plastic ring core has more advantages (besides the fact that it is cost-saving): the bangle keeps its shape but is flexible so that it doesn’t interfere with writing (usually I don’t wear bangles for just this reason).

 

unikatissima Knitted Bangle What is more I can wash it: That’s how my bangle looks after I machine-washed it at 30°C together with dark(!) cloths.
No problem there ;-)
But this depends strongly from the used yarn.

 

I used thick acrylic yarn here and find that it looks like a winter bangle, but it can surely be crocheted as well with fine cotton thread or knitted in stocking stitch with variegated sock yarns or simply be wrapped with fun yarns, possibly even be wrapped with a sewn fabric cover…
If you try something like this I would appreciate if you’d link it in the comments!
Have much fun.

Swatch Bangle

See Me Knit Swatch Bangle

Another beautiful idea: if you knit something you often knit a swatch first.
You can collect these swatches and in the course of time get enough for a blanket.
But you can also make a swatch bangle, matching your sweater :))
For that purpose you simply sew the swatch around a ready-made bracelet.
If you don’t have aready-made bracelet you can also make the bracelet yourself from a plastic bottle (see the knitted/crocheted bangles) or from paper (see the bracelet from recycled paper) :)
