I love "Crystal Light" and I end up with tons of containers. I had one in my hand and I thought "Bracelet display!"
Then I thought "How?"
Well it all came together while I was doing it. I took pics during the process in-case anybody wanted the tut, if it worked.... And it did!
Naked Ahhhh!

Basic materials needed:
Crystal light tube or similar size tube. FYI these make great bases for cuff bracelets!!!
Wire hanger "NO MORE WIRE HANGERS" Sorry had a Joan Crawford "Mommie Dearest" moment.
Scrap fabric. I love this fabric..
1. I undid the wire hanger and sorta stretched it out

2. Poked a hole through both sides. I bent the hanger and looped it through.

3.I looped it through.
4.I formed and bent the legs. I then used a pipe cleaner to keep it together.
"I can see Mars!"

5. Measured the scrap and I used hot glue to tack it down. I added the top then.

6. Wrapped and sewn together.

7. Dressed and working. Yeah!!!!!!
