DIY Studded Leather Wrap Bracelet

I was very excited to receive a reader email requesting a DIY version of Tory Burch's wrap bracelets. (If anyone else has an idea, feel free to tweet or e-mail me!) It was perfectly coincidental that I had wrap bracelets on the brain and was already cooking up ways on how to DIY something similar. After a trip to Michael's and less than 30 minutes, I made this little number. Keep reading to find out what those studs really are!




Tools and materials:
Leather wrap bracelet (mine's pre-made from Michaels, but a skinny strip of leather would work too!)
Wire clippers
Leather punch
Brass paper fasteners/brads (found at office supply stores or Michael's)






Begin by measuring and marking on the wrong side of the leather where you want the studs to go. Use the leather punch to make holes on your marks.

Trim down a brad, and push prongs through the hole in the bracelet.


Fold back the shortened prongs. Make sure to fold them in well, or file down any ragged edges.


Repeat to fill the remaining holes in the leather with fasteners.



Enjoy! I'm already having lots of fun pairing this with my other simple, metal wrist gear.
