The 2nd episode of my “DIY Marathon” YouTube Series 🙂 – DIY Bracelets Out Of Hot Glue And Washi Tape. Easy, beautiful and waterproof! 🙂 Warm hugs! Oh, and yes – check my new video (DAY 3) next day!
In this video I show how to make bracelets using hot melt glue sticks for glue gun, washi tape and iron. This is the second of seven videos from my DIY Marathon (July 9 – July 15). New video every day – so don’t miss the next ones. 🙂
For this DIY Washi Hot Glue Bracelet you will need:
your favourite washi tape
hot melt glue stick (7 mm diameter)
iron (turn it on high)
a piece of velcro
Probably I should explain the part of the video where I hold the iron above the bracelet. It is needed to make the surface glossy. The glue melts and becomes glossy when it’s cool.
– Make sure the baking paper you use doesn’t stick to the hot glue after it (glue) cool.
– Also make sure your washi tape is a real washi 🙂 I mean it is made of paper.
– When ironing – try to smash the air bubbles in melted glue between two sheets of baking paper.
– Instead of using a hot glue gun for covering the tape – you can use excesses from flattened glue stick. And also you can sew the velcro to the bracelet.
These bracelets are waterproof, flexible and glossy. But the main – they are AWESOME! 🙂
Good luck! And watch my next DIY project with glue gun!
