We’ve all owned bangles and bracelets at some time. Perhaps you still have a collection clogging up your jewellery box today. Beaded and woven, clunky and chunky or delicate and demure – if you don’t have them lying around there are a huge variety available for mere cents at your local thrift store.
The trick is to look at these little treasures in a different way.

Here are some clever uses for the humble bangle around your home.

As a curtain tie-back.

Using Bangles as Bird Toy

I even linked a few together for the birds to enjoy.

There are a multitude of ways that we can use old bangles and bracelets instead of tossing them away. Just imagine what you could do with rings and necklaces!
