DIY - From belt to bracelet!

I have tiny wrists that unfortunately give me problems in looking for arm candies that normally are way too big for my wrists and as a result I always had to walk away from them disappointed. Recently I had this idea of making my own leather wrap bracelet using a few things I found around the house..

THE INSPIRATION

THE IDEA

I used an old leather skinny belt I bought from Mango a few years back for this purpose and used my gardening scissors for cutting.


THE METHOD

I wrapped the belt a few times around my wrist and marked the desired length.


I then cut the belt as marked using the scissors


THE RESULT

The result is a leather bracelet that fits my tiny wrist perfectly!

  18. Great idea! I have same problem: most of the bracelets I try are way too big for my thin wrists. Where it's possible I ask to customize for me the design I liked but in most cases I just have to leave empty handed.

  21. Great post! I also have tiny wrists, and I don’t own a lot of bracelets because of the fit issue.
