How many of you loved making jewelry as a kid? With a room full of arts and crafts, it’s easy to whip up some fun jewelry. If you don’t happen to have a craft box, head to your local hardware store and pick up some easy essentials that will offer hours of fun and creative thinking!
Over the weekend, we had all the kiddos together running around and playing, but for some of the older girls, I brought along supplies for them to make a back to school accessory, a brass and bead leather bracelet!
The best part about this craft is there is no right way to make it, since each can be creative and unique. Some of the girls made bracelets and a couple made key chains to add to their backpacks! However, here are the steps for the bracelet.
Leather Cord or Lacing
Cut the leather into the lengths that are long enough to wrap around your wrist and brass ring.
Feed the leather evenly and loop it around the brass ring. Add a bead on each side to secure the leather.
Add a bead on each side to secure the leather. You may need to cut the ends of the leather at an angle to easily feed it through.
Push the bead as close to the brass ring, and wrap your embroidery color to keep it in place. Leave a little room on the length of the string to tie it off into a knot. Dab a little glue and you are good to go!
Tie off the ends of the leather and you are ready to wear it!
Here is a peek at the keychains and wrap bracelets a couple of the girls made! We love how creative they all got.
