My guys love to accessorize.  On any given day you may see Isaiah wearing a bow tie, cool cuff, arm band and hat all at the same time.  He likes to “layer” his embellishments!  So I decided to combine a love of biking with a love of accessorizing with these bike bracelets.  Here’s how you can create your own…

Gather the following supplies:
leather, hemp or nylon cording {at least 12 inches}
bike charm
2 folding end fasteners
2 jump rings
1 lobster clasp
small pliers

Most of these things can be found at Michaels.  Be sure to use a 50% off coupon *wink*.

Cut two pieces of leather about 5 inches long.

Wrap them around each wheel of the bike charm.

Fasten the ends with the folding end fastener.  Place the ends of the leather in the fastener and crimp it closed with the pliers.

And we are done!  Easy right?  
If you can’t find bikes, Michaels had a wide variety of other charms that this technique would work with.  Arrows, leaves, the tree of life, owls… the possibilities are endless!
