Two weeks ago, I had the privilege of doing my first guest post on another blog, and it was for the amazing Miss Information. If you have not checked out her blog, please do!
Today, I am excited to share with you a quick DIY leather bracelet that I shared with her readers.
With the Holidays coming rapidly, I think this leather bracelet would make a great gift and there is so much versatility with how you can finish them off. Let’s begin the process, and I will show you more of what I mean.
I got a 1/8 of a yard of leather for $1.24 at Hobby Lobby with a package of snaps for my needed materials.
I first began by cutting two 3”x 9” strips of leather.
I then turned the fabric inside out, so the pretty sides of the material were touching and did the following steps.
After I had the basic leather strip, I simply measured how tight I would want the bracelet to be, and I added one of my snaps in the desired area.
I love this chunky, fun bracelet. I think it looks amazing just plain by itself, but it would also be very cute embellished with a little button or flower that you could pick up at a craft store.
I decided to embroider a simple heart on the center of my bracelet. I love the simplicity but fun of this accessory.
This amount of material was enough to make five bracelets! I think that makes each bracelet cost about $0.50 (by the time you add the leather with snaps cost). I literally did this in about thirty minutes. It was so quick and easy! You should give it a try! Fabric glue would probably work if you didn’t want to break out a sewing machine.
Since posting this at Miss Information I have made a few more bracelets. I liked my embroidered one so much, I stayed with that idea.
One bracelet I personalized for my sister, Olivia Joy. She is so true to her name. She brings so much joy to my life. Another bracelet I personalized for my best friend who is a mom to four young kids.
Here is some good news for YOU! The third was personalized for one of you!
I love Kris Allen’s song “live like you are dying.” That was my thinking with making this bracelet, but you can have it mean anything you want! If you would like a chance to win this bracelet, simply leave me a comment on this post. I will pick one of you randomly on Friday to win this bracelet! Add it to your Christmas present for someone, stick it in a stocking, or surprise someone with a “just because” gift.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day! I will be back tomorrow with a quick, kid activity for the month of December to help reinforce and teach JOY to your young ones.
