Leather Bow Bracelet, DIY

I love Bracelets, so I make them more than any other accessory.
Here is a sweet little bow bracelet you can make yourself.


Tutorial
Things you need.

  1. Scrap leather Michaels or HERE
  2. Scissors
  3. Ruler
  4. Pliers
  5. X-acto knife
  6. Bracelet findings HERE
  7. Two jump rings  *Wal-mart or Michaels
  8. Clasp Walmart
  9. Pattern

Cut your pattern.
I used the X-acto knife and the  ruler for clean edges 
but scissors work too.
Above is the pattern I used.


put your end findings on the end of your leather.


Crimp them down with your pliers.

Add one of your jump rings and your clasp to one side.

and the other jump ring to the other side.

Take your bow wrong side up and place a small dab of glue in the middle.


Close it then add another dab of glue.
add the other piece wrong side up.


Looks like this.


Now your bow is starting to take place.



Place your bow on your leather bracelet.
 Using your stud and your pliers, clasp it around the leather bow and your bracelet.


to connect the two pieces.





I love leather.  
Have a fantastic Thursday.
Heading off to clean and organize for Thanksgiving.
Lots of <3,
Anne

  1. Really cute. I love the stud in the middle of the bow and how you always buy most of your supplies at stores people can actually shop at. Posted this on my main blog with two photos of the finished bracelet and a link back to your blog.
