Wire-Wrapped Beaded Leather Bracelets

leather cord bracelet DIY

Today I want to share a how-to for these wire-wrapped, beaded leather bracelets.
As I posted previously, I have a ridiculous amount of leather cord, so I used a little of it in this tutorial!

These bracelets would make a nice little gift for anyone, as you can pick colours and beads according to their personal tastes.

Adventures in Leather Cord

When making a costume last year, I ordered some 4mm leather cord for a lace-up detail. When I came to use it, I realised I'd bought the wrong thing for the job.

Ten metres of the wrong thing.

So it has been stashed away in my cupboard for over a year.
After finding it the other day, I decided I ought to do some crafting and use it up!

Having looked for inspiration online, I've seen a lot of bracelets. Mostly they used much thinner cord.
I have my thinking cap on. I'll try to come up with something different.

In the meantime, my next couple of posts will probably be bracelets ;)

Keep an eye on the blog to find out what I end up making. There might be lots of things (I do have ten metres of the stuff, after all...argggggggh!)

Have you ever ordered the wrong thing and only realised when it was too late to send it back? (Or decided to keep it anyway, in case it's useful?) 
What did you do with it in the end?

Easiest Christmas Pine Cone Ornaments

Alright, so I haven't updated here for ages, and it's been even longer since I shared a DIY!
So here I am, with a shiny new tutorial for pine cone baubles!

This how to is ridiculously easy and obvious, and there's a no-sew version, yay!

You'll need:
Pine cones
Drawing pins
Needle and thread to match ribbon (skip this if going for the no-sew option)
Fray stopper/clear nailpolish/glue to stop ribbon fraying
Scissors or pinking shears
