Leather Embroidered Bracelet DIY

These bracelets are a fun way to add a bit of warmth and color to the muted tones of your fall wardrobe. Here's how I made them:

These bracelets have no rules. All you need is some leather strands (I found precut strands in the leather section at my local craft store), embroidery thread, and a Crop-a-dile. First, I connected two different colors of leather to one another by punching holes in the strands and attaching them together with embroidery thread. Mine were roughly ten inches long each. Then, I added different colors of embroidery thread throughout the bracelets by punching rows of holes and threading it through, and wrapping it around in various clumps on the bracelet to add pops of color throughout. Lastly, I punched a hole on each end and attached a clasp. 

To style, wrap the bracelet around your wrist, arranging it so that the embroidered sections are on top and clasp it closed. My favorite way to style these are with lots of gold jewelry, a black dress, and brown leather boots.
