"Don't Hate" Leather Cuff

When it comes to DIY bracelet craft ideas, what's not to like? Create a "Don't Hate" Leather Cuff and wear it every single day. The positive message and stylish design make this a real treat. This bracelet is so easy to create, you'll want to make more than one. This is also a great gift to make for a stylish friend or family member. If you're new to crafting or just want to create something a little different, this is the perfect project for you. Use a paint pen to add your phrase to the cuff and let your work speak for itself. The next time someone says they don't love DIY, tell them "Don't Hate!"

I loved the wrapped leather cuff design but I don't wear brown leather so up-cycling it with a coat of Krylon Glitter paint and a favorite quote turned it into one of my favorite pieces of jewelry!
