DIY: Leather wrapped chain bracelet

I've been looking for leather wrap bracelets for quite some time. I've found many that I liked but they were way too big for my wrist. After many attempts, I thought "why not make my own". I found this useful tutorial and decided to give it a try.



My local Jo-Ann's has a very slim section for chains and I couldn't find anything I really liked. I was so happy to stumble upon this Forever 21 chain. The style/size is exactly what I was looking for. It's available in silver-tone as well if you don't like gold-tone. I followed the tutorial and below are step-by-step instructions.














{Paring with my Michael Kors 5128 in rose gold}

I had so much fun making these bracelets. If you're interested, I encourage you to give it a try. They're very easy to make. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comment section.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

  13. Thanks for sharing this DIY, Sydney!! I always have problem finding a bangle/bracelet as my wrists are very narrow! I can still get away with bracelets ( the elastic ones) but I've never been able to find a bangle for my wrist in this country till date! Thank you very much for your sweet comment!
