Mother’s Day Cork Bracelet

I wanted to make something simple and pretty for Mother’s Day this year and I came across this Natural Cork Leather with Gold. Once I found the Heart Sliders it just seemed perfect and I knew I had my design.

This Portuguese Cork is nice and light, perfect for spring and summer. The gold really adds a nice touch and because it is so neutral it would go with just about anything you want to wear!

And of course, the magnetic clasp makes it super easy to put on and take off which is always an added bonus.

Materials:

Instructions:

  1. Trim leather if necessary (see Tip below).
  2. Add slider.
  3. Determine which way you want the clasp to be on the bracelet and then apply a very small amount of super new glue to the end of the cork. Insert it into the clasp and let dry a few minutes.

That’s it 🙂

Tip: I found that when I wanted to trim the cork a bit, sharp scissors actually worked better for this than the straight cutter (which is made for leather and really does work great on leather).

Enjoy!
