Wrap a scrap of ribbon or fabric around an inexpensive wire bangle. I purchased a set of 10 at a discount store. The length of ribbon depends upon how wide it is and how much you overlap it on the bangle. I generally need less than 24 inches Use a bit of fabric glue to secure this at the beginning and end. Note: It is not necessary to glue the entire length of ribbon; just wrap it tightly as it will be further secured with wire.
