DIY: Leather Wrap Bracelets

I’ve become completely obsessed with DIY projects and after my latest DIY Glitter Shoes I decided to take on jewelry. While browsing Honestly…WTF I came upon a DIY tutorial for leather wrap bracelets and decided to attempt them on my own. My version varies slightly but it’s the same general idea.

my bracelets

You’ll need (for a double wrapped bracelet):

  • 40 inches of 1.5mm or 2mm leather cord (pick a neutral color)
  • 12 inches of crystal chain
  • 60 inches of waxed cotton cord (pick a bright color)
  • a 1/4″ brass hex nut (I bought a pack of four at a hardware store)
  • a pair of scissors
All of these supplies can be found in the jewelry/beading section of the craft store, minus the hex nut. 
 
Since I got a lot of great feedback from my viewers on YouTube saying that they wanted to see a video for how to make the bracelets I just decided to film one instead of writing a blog post. Also don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel! I’m nearing 6,000 subscribers!

May I introduce you to my Brooks Brothers dress shirt. When I wear it I feel like I’m wearing one of my boyfriend’s shirts, except one made just for me complete with pink stripes. There is just something about a crisp, freshly pressed dress shirt that I love. I decided to add a statement bib necklace around the collar of my shirt to add something extra. Wasn’t sure if it worked but after seeing these pictures I may have to pair statement necklaces with dress shirts more often.

Notice I’m missing a cufflink on my right arm? Just got this shirt dry-cleaned and accidentally misplaced a cufflink. Thankfully my boyfriend Nick had the genius idea of using a safety pin in its place. Luckily I found the cufflink later in the day!
