- Felt Flowers
- Low-mask Masking Tape – Blue
- Craft Knife
- Water Bottles
Remove all labels from water bottle. Mark off desired cut lines with blue masking tape. I use different widths of tape to determine the widths of my bracelets.
Use a craft knife to cut between masking tape lines. Use scissors to straighten any cut lines on water bottle bracelets.
Remove masking tape from bracelets.
Tear fabric into 3/8" strips.
Apply dab of Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue™ to inside of bracelet.
Press end of fabric strip into glue and begin to wrap fabric around bracelet.
When you have covered all of the water bottle with the fabric, cut away excess, leaving enough fabric to bring around to the inside. Glue end of fabric in place.
Apply dots of Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue™ on outside of bracelet wherever you want to glue a felt flower. I have found that I like to space my flowers close together to give volume to my bracelet.
Glue all flowers in place on outside of bracelet.
Add dot of Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue™ to center of all flowers.
Place felt dots in center of all flowers.
Once your flowers and centers are glued in place, set aside to let dry.
