DIY Leather Bird Ring

DIY Leather Bird RingI love simple DIY’s that are quick and easy but have high impact with the results. I found several variations of leather bird rings being sold on etsy when browsing through Pinterest and was inspired to try making my own version of a DIY leather bird ring during a fifteen minute work break. I had happened to have all the materials needed with me and was able to get it done in under five minutes flats!

Materials:

DIY Leather Bird Ring

Leather Scraps | Scissors | Leather Marker | Scrap Paper

Directions:

On a piece of scrap paper, sketch out the bird pattern. For my size US 5.5 finger, the overall pattern measured 1.5 inches long for the stretch between the bird body and wing.

Trace pattern onto the pieces of scrap leather. If you’re thinking this looks far too short for a ring that would fit me, you’re right! This was my first test run and found that the optimal length for my finger was the 1.5″ between and 2.25″ in total from beak to wing tip.

I recommend that you thread through the wing before cutting the fringe on it because it is easier to wiggle it back and forth without the chance of any leather ripping.

After the wing is threaded through, cut the fringe detailing on it.

Add an eye dot if you like the look of it. Then you’re all done!
