Project By: Janice Parsons
In almost no time, you can make a very cool wrap bracelet with three ingredients. We can’t say it makes itself…but almost! For a great weekend look, for the guy in your life, for that person who likes simple, this simple band design can go from a once-around-design to wrap and wrap as much as you like.

- Begin by loosely fitting the leather strap around your wrist. Decide how many times you want it to wrap. The clasp will only add 1/4 inch to the finished length. Cut the leather straight across using sharp scissors to the desired length.
- Keep the two sides of the clasp connected, but glue one side at a time.
- Insert glue into one side of the clasp. Use only a quick-drying, 2 coat epoxy, like Zap Glue. You want an adhesive that is intended to work with leather. Insert the leather into the opening of the clasp. Carefully wipe away any excess glue, using caution the glue doesn't smear onto the leather. Make sure the preferred side of the leather is facing up. Allow time to dry (see package instructions for manufacturer's suggested drying time.)
- Wrap the leather around your wrist to check again how many times you want it to wrap. Repeat Step 3 for how to glue in the second side. You're ready to go!
