I had this nude colored leather belt that I never used. It was meant to be tied around my waist, but because the leather is so stiff, it just didn’t look good… just sort of awkward… So, I used it as a material for two diy leather bracelets two get something out of my two euro impulsive purchase.
I cut two pieces measured so that I could get my hand through the bracelet. Then I used a leather punch to make holes to it. Then I made some decorative stitches on the other and attached two chain pieces to the other. Then I stitched them from the back to form a round bracelet. And here’s how they look finished:
I think this is something even men would like to wear, if it was brown or black and from a wider leather belt. Am I right? So, a great gift idea too..
I’ve had these flats for about three summers now and while they are still usable, the tips were starting to look a bit scratched. I’ve seen a lot of flats or heels with a painted tip, so I thought that coloring the tips of my flats would improve the look so that I could use them for one more summer. Instead of using spray paint I decided to use a black permanent marker. It was easy to just tape the tips and color them with the marker. I also changed the laces for black leather string for more contrast. Here’s the after:
They look almost like new! The result is cute and saves some money too… so I’m happy!
