DIY-Arm Candy Holder

Today post is DIY idea that was in my head for so long but because of my lazy attitude it took me a while to get along with it.

 Being a jewelry lover that I am; my love for arm candy is even built up more than it used to be, they are just effortless. Simple ways to add a little flavor to your appearance, put on a simple bracelet/arm candy, stacks them all together or just embrace one bold statement piece.
In one word they are very versatile.

This love that I have manage to prolong has made me gather load of bracelet, bangles or arm candy whatever you may want to call it, but it made me make my own bangle/arm candy  holder which I am I proud of and want to flaunt it; so if you even want to know how to make this arm candy holder then keep on reading.

For this D.I.Y you’ll need:

1.   A thread holder i.e. that is cover with thread ( I don’t know the proper name for it but here you can see in the pic below by what I mean)

thread middle section-after the thread is finished

2.      Asoft cardboard paper…i.e. easily foldable and hard enough to be stable like you can use a cornflakes box, tissue paper box whatever you may find in your home or get the cheap cardboard paper whatever suits you the best.

3.      Acrylic paints-color of your choice

4.     and a Paint brush(of your choice -whatever you can find...but on the thicker side would be better -you can see the difference in the below picture)

That’s about it now let get to the 

Process shall we?!?!

1.      Get your thread holder and soft cardboard paper ready and paint them on with your  chosen color…..the first coat doesn't have to be perfect just cover the whole thing up,let it dry and then apply the second coat to give a flawless application .I promise no matter how wacked it look with the first coat , the second coat will do the trick .....see for yourself.

2.       After the paint dries completely, place 1 or 2 bangle on the soft cardboard to get the perfect fit so that you can easily secure it with a tape.
