I've been painting my bedroom and, as it happens, I ran out of painters tape.  I was about the throw the roll away and it struck me!  AHA!  Bracelet!  This project didn't cost a thing because I used materials I had lying around the house. 

You need:
- material
- lace
- hot glue gun
- painters tape roll

As my hot glue was heating up, I ironed the material and cut a piece large enough to wrap around the tape roll. I wrapped the material around the roll and folded the excess material inside the roll.  I secured the material by hot-gluing the material to the inside of the roll. I wasn't very concerned with how neat the bottom layer material looked because I planned on wrapping a layer of lace around the roll next. I angled the lace so that it wrapped around the roll easier and it looked cleaner.  All together, this project took a total of ten minutes to complete. 

(I had a really hard time taking a picture of my arm) 



And there you have it!  A ten minute project that cost nothing!

Very clever to make something pretty out of something we throw away. The wrapped around lace is a nice touch.
