The funny story is, I was with my Mom, Grandmother and good friend Elaine having coffee. Walking up to the table, we were all saying our hello's and something felt very strange around my waist. I looked down and my belt had just said it's final goodbye as a belt,~ broken~ right off the belt buckle. Everyone looked at me, laughed and shouted out "RE-STYLE!!"
I still smile every time I think of it.
Of course this belt has lots of life left.
Let's breathe new life into this poor, broken belt and turn it into a bracelet.
Things you need.
I trimmed off the broken leather
Measure your wrist
cut the leather in a half circle.
with the leather hole punch,
Punch a hole at the end.
I used a large rhinestone stud,
I put that through the hole and placed the back on it.
place the bracelet ~rhinestone down~ on a wood cutting board or a piece of wood,
lightly hammer the metal back to fuse it with the rhinestone.
The rhinestone keeps the leather from sliding, once you put it on, like a clasp.
All finished, super easy
and you re- purposed.
Have a great Monday.
Lots of <3,
