Leather and Rhinestone Bracelet, DIY.

I love the look of leather and rhinestones.

 Tutorial
Things you need
  1. Scrap leather
  2. Snaps* Michaels in the leather section or HERE
  3. Rhinestones * Michaels in the leather section or HERE
  4. Leather Hole Punch *Michaels or HERE
  5. Pencil.
 Cut a strip of leather 1 inch wide by 8 inches long.
 or measure your wrist to get a measurement for you..make sure the leather over laps about a inch.


Use your hole punch and punch a hole on each end
Following the snap instructions attach your snaps.
 Make sure your snap fits, and it does not hang over.  *I measure about a 1/2 of an inch in.
 Mark where you want to put your rhinestones.  * Start in the middle and work your way to the end.
 I marked  mine almost an inch apart.
 Punch your holes.
Put your rhinestone through the hole.
 Turn it over and put the back on.
Then lightly tap with a hammer to lock it into place. 
I am going to stress lightly.


New Bracelet.
HERE and HERE are some other rhinestone and leather bracelets I did a while ago.
Happy Thursday.
I hope your Halloween was Spooky and wonderful.
Lots of <3,
Anne

  1. These would make really great gifts (if I could somehow get the measurements of a few people's wrists)since I'm already starting on holiday gifts! You could change the leather and rhinestone color to match the tastes of the recipient. Posted the top photo and a link back to your blog on Trueblue.
