Now you can make your own customized bracelets sorting your personal mantra thanks to this tutorial by the Lumi Blog. This is a great project to do with a bunch of friends and also makes for a great gift idea. You can get creative with these pieces as well, with the option to completely customize whatever saying you place on the piece.

The materials you will need to create these bracelets include some plastic wrap, a raw wooden bangle, some Inkodye and a black paint marker. Essentially, all there is to it is writing your message on the plastic wrap, and then you cover the bangle with the Inkodye and remove any excess. The final steps include wrapping your plastic wrap around the bracelet and then leaving it out in the sun for the color to develop. Once that is complete, you remove the plastic wrap to reveal a beautiful piece of handmade jewelry.
