Carved Leather Bracelets

Let's get started!

Father's Day is coming up so Boo and I made Mr. Lil Blue Boo this hand carved bracelet:

Finished project 1

It says "Daddy I Love You" in Boo's handwriting:

Finished project 2

First I started with a basic leather cuff (from Dharma Trading, pre-cut with hardware already attached) and used a razor blade to cut it in half:

You can get two bracelets for one with the wide cuff

A cuff becomes 2 bracelets!


I used small detail scissors to trim the edges to make them symmetrical:

Ready to go!

Boo wrote her message to Daddy on the bracelet:

Write out your message or freehand it

Using a set of basic linoleum cutting tools.

...I carefully carved out the letters:

Next I painted the bracelet with basic leather paint (in English Tan) making sure to get a lot of paint down into the carved letters:

Get the paint down into those lines really well

Next I wiped off the paint using a damp cloth so only a thin layer was on the leather.

Blot the excess

I painted and wiped it off several times to achieve a distressed look. Then let it dry completely:

Boo couldn't keep this secret from Daddy and wanted to give him his bracelet immediately:

A perfect gift to Daddy from his little girl:

I made the "grateful" bracelet for myself:
