  • Craft knife

  • Piece of shoulder leather, cut into strips

  • Glue, such as Magna-Tac

  • Plastic lacing


  1. Using knife, cut 1 strip to desired width, and twice the length needed for a bangle (it should slide over your hand). Ours were approximately 16 inches long. Cut a piece of plastic lacing 65 inches long.

  2. Loop leather strip to desired bangle size; apply a dot of glue, sandwich end of lacing between layers of leather, and squeeze.

  3. Working an inch at a time, glue layers together and wrap strip tightly with lacing (creating strips or crisscrosses). To finish, tuck end of lacing between leather, snip, and glue.
