I discovered on Pinterest a great and simple idea for turning an old leather belt into a bracelet. Inspired, I took a super-long belt that I bought from the thrift store a few months ago, and decided to create my own bracelet. I made my bracelet a bit different from the image source I was inspired from, as I didn't want a buckle showing. Here's how I did it (it's really simple):
First, I grabbed my old belt and a pair of scissors.
Then, I cut off the buckle. I kept the stitch holding the piece of leather attached to the buckle in place, as my belt was braided and I didn't want it come undone. The stitch kept the braid in place.
Then, I took the end I cut and began wrapping it around my wrist.
I didn't want the ends to show, so I tried to tuck them in as best as I could.
That its! I told you it was easy ;) Since there is no fastener to keep the bracelet in place, I had to readjust it a few times as a I wore it. For some reason I didn't mind this, though. It seemed to add to its charm.
