In continuing my DIY kick, I decided to make a few simple bracelets. I've made wire wrapped bracelets (tutorial here) and I wanted to try something different. I spotted a tutorial online (through this website) about painting leather and I really liked the idea. Except instead of paint I ended up using nail polish on colored leather lace. It was a super easy project that took all of 15 minutes or less for each bracelet. I even had most of the materials at home.
First I cut a 10mm leather cord a little longer than my wrist. I decided on the colors of nail polish I was going to use and then painted my design. In some cases I would paint one color and then wait for it to dry and go back to paint another color.
Once the bracelets were all decorated and dry I took a magnetic clasp (aren't the hearts cute?!) and used E6000 glue to glue the cord in. I trimmed my leather a little more before gluing in the other side. Before wearing it, I let the glue dry for 24 hours.
