DIY simple bracelet

While at camp this week I took time to make a simple leather bracelet. I thought I'd show you how to make one yourself seeing as it was so easy and bracelets are so fun to layer with every look. 

Step 1: 
Measure and cut the leather strip to fit once or twice around your wrist. Make room for the clasp at the end. 

Step 2: 
Find a good pair of scissors for a clean cut. 

Step 3: 
Die the leather a color of choice (I went with tan).

Oh and I did one in red too. 

Step 4: 
Pick out your material of choice for the clasp at the end. You could also use some colorful string to tie the ends together. 

Step 5:
Nail a hole at the end of each side for the clasps. I needed some help. 

Step 6: 
Nail the clasps together on a hard surface on each end, make sure you have the right size and pair.

Step 7: 
Wrap it around your wrist and wear it around all of the time!

That's it! Easy peazy. 


  1. Simple, yes - but very clever.

  2. It´s very easy!

  3. I definitely want to try this! So cute.

  4. I love UPBC! Leather Craft is my fav!!
