New Style : Wrap Around Watch DIY

The new watch trend going around is the wrap around look. This look goes well with stackable bracelets too! The watches vary in price, but here are two I saw online. These are from La Mer and Avon. The La Mer retails for $130 and Avon is $40. There are tons of variations of the watch, but rather than go out and buy one I decided to make my own!

I had a pair of old shoes that I didn't wear anymore and they were perfect for this project! This was super easy to do! All I did was cut the straps off the shoes and sewed them to the watch face. You can use an old watch or pick up the watch face from a craft store.

Here is part of the strap that I cut off. The shoes already had a buckle, so there was no need to add another! This made the project even easier! I just attached the two sides to the watch and that's that!

Here is the finished watch! It is a shiny patten leather with rhinestone detail. The camera flash reflected off the material somewhat, but I love how it turned out!

Here is a picture of the shoe I used and the finished watch!

Hope you enjoyed! Check back soon!
