What’s better than having a baby cow in your barn? Why how ’bout wearing one ’round your wrist? I must admit that lately I’m going gaga (or in my case moo-moo) over Leather Cuff Bracelets, but not their hefty price tags. So what’s a gal to do? I’ve figured out how to make my very own cuff bracelet! Needless to say, my bracelet rack is moooooing and overflowing with all sorts of my DIY leather cuff designs, and I’m proud of each and every one of my new babies. We all know how proud mamas like to brag, so here I am sharing my unique DIY project with y’all.
* Piece of soft leather long enough to wrap around your arm. Mine was purchased at a Hobby Lobby craft store for $3.47. I’ve also seen them at Michael’s crafts store.
* A flat ornament. My beautiful stone cross pendant is another affordable ($2.50) Hobby Lobby find.
* Rivet Kit with a riveting tool. I found this one on Ebay for $10, but any crafts store will also be selling them.
* Two medium size buttons. My ‘Jean Buttons’ are from Walmart!
* Tacky Glue.
* Leather cord about 1 yard in length. I bought this multi color suede cord at Michael’s (40 feet long) for $4! Cha-ching!
* You might also need a pencil for marking cuts, scissors to cut your bracelet to size, as well as an x-acto knife (or box cutter). Leather can be tough to cut, and this is when my x-acto knife comes in handy.
And now that you’ve created your own fabulous leather cuff bracelet you will treasure and adore, it is time to show it off and let the rest of the world salivate over it. You can always send them my way This cuff is one of my favorite creations. Regardless of my outfit choice, the cuff always draws attention. Here’s proof:
No ma’am, this bright and cheerful dress ain’t got nothin’ on my fabulous new cuff, but my cowgirl boots might be whistlin’ a different tune, and I know you’ll agree. Could they be another one of my fun DIY recreations? Hmmmm … here is where I spill the beans. Now y’all moooove it along, ya hear.
Don’t forget to give me a holler letting me know how your leather cuff (or boots) DIY turned out.
