DIY – Leather belt bracelet

diy - leather belt bracelet

When belts break it’s almost always at the end. You can throw that broken belt away, but you can also make it into a beautiful leather bracelet!

What you need 

– a belt
– a hammer
– a nail
– scissors
– pencil

How you make it

Wrap the belt around your wrist three times. Mark where there should be a hole in the belt. Now take the nail and the hammer and make a hole. Cut of the belt at the desired length.

Now wear your new leather belt bracelet. Or make another one for your boyfriend!

      You just need an old leather belt. If you don’t have one there are a lot of them in thrift stores!
