Get your kids in on some painting fun AND make a beautiful accessory in the process. These watercolor painted wooden bangle bracelets are bright, colorful and fun for kids to wear or hand out as handmade gifts.

DIY Watercolor Wooden Bangle Bracelets – Materials:

Liquid watercolors
– Paint brushes
– Small cups (we used disposable drinking cups)
Wooden Bangles
– Tray and parchment paper to dry your bangles


Step 1. Dilute your watercolors in a bit of water in your cups The more diluted the less bright the colors will be so the ratio is up to you.

Step 2. Ask your child to paint away, creating colors, stripes, designs, whatever they like. Keep in mind the watercolors will bleed quickly on the wood bangles so having fine paintbrushes will help in preventing the colors spreading too quickly. Also make sure colors dry in between if you want to paint designs on top to prevent muddy colors. Of course if that happens it’s fine too! As long as your child is enjoying the process.

Let the bangles dry on a parchment lined tray and you’re done!

Aren’t they beautiful? The liquid watercolors add such vibrant colors to the wood.

You can wear them, hand out as handmade gifts or stack them!
