The little leather pouch just keeps on giving! I paid 50 cents for it and I have more left even after these leather projects!
The original plan was to cover the headband with the leather strip and make a whimsical leaf decoration with the button in the middle. BORING?! YES!
After I used hot glue to attach the leather to the headband I drew black swirls with permanent ink and decorated them with acrylic paint pens for a whimsical colorful headband. I covered the white (inside) with brown paint and attached pretty gold braid with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.
I turned one of the leaves into a pretty pin/brooch by metal stamping “I LOVE FALL” and staining the letters black with some pretty gold accents. I attached a pin finding to the back with hot glue
This project actually took about 20 minutes to make. I cut a piece of leather to fit my wrist and used permanent markers to color sections. Then I metal stamped SEASIDE OREGON and used a silver pen to make the letters stand out. I had a few jewelry clamp findings, they are so easy to turn anything into a bracelet. You just put them at the end of the leather and clamp down with some pliers. WA-LAH you have a bracelet!
Crafters are always thinking about Christmas…only 134 days away! Wow time flies. Leather crafts make wonderful presents that are easy to personalize. Hopefully this will give someone some inspiration : )
