Tovolea Mada : Tapa Bangle

Tovolea mada is Fijian for go ahead and try and is Urban Viti’s new DIY blog post series. First up is an easy DIY tapa bangle.

I bought this 3 piece set bangle but never wore the one with the peacock feather so I decided to jazz it up with tapa.



I used ‘scrap’ tapa I had spare from another project, so the width does not cover the whole bangle and I also only covered half of the bangle with tapa. You can cover the whole bangle if you want.

Cut three pieces of double sided tape to fit tapa and peel off backing.

Line up tapa on bangle. Once positioned – press across the surface with fingers to press down firmly and release any air bubbles.

Finished product
