10 DIY Leather Accessories

Leather accessories are all the rage in fashion these days, and I for one love the trend. The look is timeless and fashionable with a tendency toward the modern that I really like. But the hefty price of leather? That’s not something I like so much. Luckily for all of us, DIY leather accessories are popping up just about everywhere these days – from iPhone cases to belts and bracelets, you can make just about anything from leather. Not into wearing leather? No sweat! All of these looks can be made with synthetic leather, too, for a fashionably vegan option.
