Ankara Bangles

  • Using the scissors, cut out a large piece of Ankara fabric. This piece should be long enough to wrap the plastic bangle completely; including its interior parts.
  • Apply the glue around the bangle. Ensure that you apply it evenly to all parts of the bangle.
  • Wrap the Ankara fabric around the bangle. Ensure that you have enough fabric which will be used to cover the insides of the bangle.

  • Wrap the excess fabric inward to cover the inner part of the bangle.
