"Don't Hate" Leather Cuff


"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!

Primary TechniquePainting



  • Leather cuff         
  • Scrap paper
  • Pencil
  • Tape



  1. Spray paint the cuff with a few coats of Krylon Glitter Blast Starry Night.
  2. Lay out the placement of the letters written on tape when the cuff is on your wrist.

  3. Practice your hand lettering on a piece of paper with the Krylon Silver Leafing Pen.

  4. Write your quote on your cuff with the Krylon Silver Leafing Pen.
  5. Add a "stitched" look on the edges of the cuff with the Krylon Silver Leafing Pen by drawing dashes. Outline the holes on the cuff with the Krylon Silver Leafing Pen to create a faux grommet look.
