This is a little DIY I’ve been dreaming up for a while, but I had a hard time deciding on the simplest way to make it happen. I’m pretty sure I figured it out, so this one is as easy as can be! If you want to make one (or seven, like I did because I just couldn’t stop), gather your materials:
- leather (or faux!)
- super glue
- key ring
- rubber band
Start by cutting two strips of leather — one that measures 3″ by 1/4″, and one that measures 10″ by 3 1/2″.
Fold the smaller strip in half, through the keyring. Apply glue to the ends of the strip and affix them to each other. Hold with a clip until they’re dry.
Cut 1/4″ fringe into the other piece of leather. Leave a 3/4″ strip uncut on one long side.
Starting at one end, apply glue and affix the short strip with the keyring.
Begin rolling the fringed piece tightly around the smaller strip, applying glue approximately every inch or so.
Glue the end of the fringed strip down onto itself. Secure with a rubber band until the glue is dry.
That’s it! So simple, right? And I love how put-together and expensive it looks. I had a little fun experimenting with different lengths and sizes, so feel free to mix it up! And this little guy is now part of my daily essentials. Have fun! xoxo
