I will admit – I may have had a little too much fun making this craft project out of previously colored coloring pages for adults. In fact, I am planning on making several more! And I’ll show you how to make your own coloring page bracelets here.
First, collect your supplies:
- (1) or more previously colored coloring pages
- Foam paint brush
- (1) or more wooden bangle bracelet
For the coloring page, I chose one of the pattern designs from our Club ColorMonthly membership pages. I figured they would work nicely for a decoupage bracelet, but you can literally choose any previously colored page you’d like.

I got the wooden bangle bracelets off Amazon, and the Mod Podge and foam paint brush from my local art supply store (Hobby Lobby or Michaels).
First, I trimmed off the white from the colored page, and cut it in half.
Next, I cut each panel into small strips, about 1 – 1.5 inches wide. It doesn’t have to be exact. In fact, you’ll want a bit of variance in this piece to give it individual flair.
Now it’s time to decoupage! The way to do this is to understand that you’re going to get messy. And that’s ok! Mod Podge will wash off your hands. So have fun with it!
You’re going to want to paint the back of your strip as well as the spot in your wooden bracelet you’re applying the strip to with Mod Podge.
Then, once they are both all wet and gooey, wrap the strip around your bracelet.
Overlap your strips slightly as you move around the bracelet, making sure all the wood is covered. You’ll want to kind of smear the Mod Podge over the top of the pages as you go along as well to make it nice and shiny in the end.
In the end, I almost completed two bracelets with the one coloring page. I think if I had planned a little better, and not overlapped quite so much, I would have had a bit more material and been able to complete them both. Also, you’ll notice a little color bleeding in my bracelets. I like the effect. I used Sharpies to color the pages, on regular paper. If you don’t like the effect, try using pages colored in colored pencil, or even gel markers.
