DIY Leather Bracelet

D I Y  L E A T H E R  B R A C E L E T

Cute leather bracelets have been everywhere lately and while I love the selections, most options are not in my price range. On Friday, I got together with craft guru and real life girlfriend Liz from craftervention to re-create some of the cute cuffs I’ve been spotting. For under $20, Liz and I made a bunch of leather bracelets in an afternoon. The creation of my favorite bracelet (inspired by this one from Barneys NY) is documented below.

Materials:

  • Leather strips (1 yard of each color), found at any fabric store.
  • Braided leather (1 yard)
  • Sew-on snaps
  • Super glue
  • A needle/thread

I began by cutting three pieces of braided leather at equal lengths. I gathered the strips at the ends and sewed them together, seeing that the thread went through every piece at least once. The ends looked messy when I finished, but it didn’t matter because I cut a little piece of leather, wrapped it around each end and concealed the stitched up braids using super glue.

Lastly, I sewed snaps onto each end of the bracelet for an easy closure.
I may be a little obsessed with my new Tod’s-esque leather bracelet!
