DIY Wrapped Wrap Bracelet

Not too long ago, J.Crew rolled out with a belt (leather wrapped with thread) that inspired a few DIY tutorials, like here and here. When I saw this leather wrap bracelet and thin cord hanging next to each other at Michael's, I decided to apply the same wrap technique for a bracelet. Keep reading to see how I made it.



Tools and Materials:
Strong glue
Wrap leather bracelet
Thin colorful cord
Scissors


Tie your first color of cord around the leather. Knot and add a blob of glue to secure. Wrap tightly with the cord, covering up the tail of the screen.



To switch colors, tie the second color cord to the first, so that the knot is on the inside of the bracelet. Continue wrapping to cover the knot and tails of the strings. Repeat to add additional colors.

Once you've wrapped the entire bracelet, tie the last string around the bracelet, add another dab of glue to secure, and trim and tuck the end of the cord. Let the glue dry overnight.

    Can you make more then one bracelet with the pack of cords or do you use it all on the one bracelet?

    1. There was definitely enough colored string to make another bracelet. Maybe even two more!
