The very first tutorial I published here, over two years ago, was a DIY leather bow bracelet. It looks like my love for leather bow accessories and easy & quick DIY projects hasn't changed!
I used vegan leather but genuine leather would work just as well. Scraps work great for this project, as you only need a small piece. However, the leather needs to be quite thin and supple- otherwise, knotting will require an herculean strength.
By the way, I'm doing this project as part of Brittni's Skillshare class, The How-To on How-Tos, which teaches everything you need to know to create a share-worthy tutorial (from coming up with the idea to styling and shooting to getting your tutorial into the hands of editors, and more), all taught by an amazing teacher. If you're interested, you can save $10 if you enroll via my referral link (which brings the class to only $10).
- Small piece of leather, at least 6 1/2" x 2" (17cm x 5cm)
- Sharp scissors
- Hair tie
- Pen or pencil
- Free printable pattern. Click here to open it.
Print and cut the pattern. Trace it onto your piece of leather, and cut out. Add the hair tie and knot. That's it! 5 minutes tops, and you're ready to wear your new bow proudly.
I decided to challenge myself and take a picture of myself with the bow. It's been hard. I'm so uncomfortable with selfies- please be indulgent!
