Fancy making a beautiful leather bow ring? Follow Boatemaa's easy step by step guide and have your own one made in a flash!

You will need:
-A leather/ faux leather scrap
-A ring base
- Epoxy glue/ glue gun
-Scissors

Step by Step


Step One: First cut your leather into two strips, about two or three centimetres in width and about twenty in length.

Step Two and Three: Fold your longer piece of leather to create a box bow.

Step Four and Five: You may want to glue this so it does not unravel.

Step Six: Add glue to the centre of the bow before applying the second strip of leather across the mid-section.

Step Seven: You may also want to add extra glue to the second strip to ensure it stays on.

Step Eight and Nine:  Pinch the middle of the bow; you can use something heavy to secure the bow whilst it dries.

Step Ten: After the glue on the bow has dried, place some on the ring base you'll be using.

Step Eleven and Twelve: Then attach the leather bow to the ring base, and leave it dry, after which it'll be ready to wear.
