Use leftover string from crafts projects to make textured bracelets. Purchase plastic bangles from a jewelry or crafts store. Using craft glue, attach 1 inch of the tail end of the string to the inside of the bangle. Wrap string around bangle until bracelet is covered. Cut the string, leaving a 3-inch tail; thread through a needle. Thread the tail under strings on inner side of bangle to secure. For a striped effect, alternate string colors as you work.
