Gear up for autumn with this DIY woven leather bracelet, you won’t believe how easy it is to make.
You will need:
-1.5cm x 20cm piece of leather
-1 m leather cord
-1 button stud
-Strong craft glue, such as E6000
Step 1: On the back of piece of 1.5cm x 20cm leather, mark a dot every centimeter down the center.
Step 2: Take your multi-hole punch and punch holes over the dots you have marked.
Step 3: On one end of the leather, punch three holes in a larger size to fit the button stud.
Step 4: On the other end, add a button stud to the last hole.
Step 5: On the reversed side, next to the three large holes you have made, take your leather cord and tie a knot on the forth hole. Do not trim the end of the cord.
Step 6: On the front side, start weaving the cord around the piece of leather from top to bottom.
Step 7: Keep going until you have completed the full length.
Step 8: Then on the reserved side, tie another knot leaving a bit of cord.
Step 9: Trim the end of the cord a little smaller and glue it onto the leather. Repeat this on both knots. Allow to dry.
Step 10: Take a small pair of scissors and cut small slits into the three large holes, this will make it easier to pull over the button stud.
