Leather Bracelets – Guest Post Spoonful of Imagination

Hey everyone, I can’t wait to introduce you to Erica from Spoonful of Imagination! I first met her at the Country Living Fair last month. We are both Atlanta Bloggers. She is a total sweetheart and I know you will love this craft she has to share with you!

Hi!  My name is Erica and I blog at Spoonful of Imagination.  I have been blogging for about four years, but I have just re-branded with this new site.  I’d love for you to come check it out!  I am so excited to be in this blog world, and I can’t thank Kelley enough for inviting me to do a guest post with you all! 

My husband, Matt, and I have been married for eight years and we have two boys and a little girl.  We have started home schooling this year and are loving it.  I love to write about the places we go, things we do, and the creations I make in the midst of it all. I feel like if you add a spoonful of imagination into every area of your journey, it will be a more beautiful life. 

Today I have a quick craft to share with you. 

With the Holidays coming rapidly, I think this leather bracelet would make a great gift and there is so much versatility with how you can finish them off.  Let’s begin the process, and I will show you more of what I mean.

I got a 1/8 of a yard of leather for $1.24 at Hobby Lobby with a package of snaps for my needed materials.

I first began by cutting two 3”x 9” strips of leather.

I then turned the fabric inside out, so the pretty sides of the material were touching and did the following steps.

After, I had the basic leather strip, I simply measured how tight I would want the bracelet to be, and added one of my snaps in the desired area. 

I love this chunky, fun bracelet.  I think it looks amazing just plain by itself, but it would also be very cute embellished with a little button or flower that you could pick up at a craft store.


I decided to embroider a simple heart on the center of my bracelet.  I love the simplicity but fun of this accessory.

This amount of material was enough to make five bracelets!  I think that makes each bracelet cost about $0.50 (by the time you add leather with snaps cost).  I literally did this in about thirty minutes.  It was so quick and easy! You should give it a try! Fabric glue would probably work if you didn’t want to break out a sewing machine. 

I hope you enjoyed this craft and will come visit me at my site, spoonfulofimagination.com.  Every Friday I spotlight a craft project and throughout the rest of the week I share other fun posts of crafts and family adventures.  My greatest hope is that people leave my blog “imagining the possibilities!”
