This Instructable will show you how to build a cool looking bracelet with integrated LED's. You only need a few materials and some basic skills.

The materials you need for this are:
- leather belt
- fabric
- smd-LED's/LED-strip
- fastener
- 3V button cell
- thread
- wire
- push button
- jumper socket(optional)

The tools are:
- soldering ion
- hot glue gun
- sewing machine
- knife

Step 1:

In the first step you've got to cut a fitting piece out of the belt. It's a good idea to use a sharp knife and a ruler to do this.
Now you've got to make some holes for the LED's. You can either use a special tool for this or, if you haven't got one, you can easily take a hammer and a metal tube to make them.

<p>This looks pretty awesome</p>
This is a pretty cool idea, and I'm sure that you are full of more good ideas. That being said, there are some things that might peak your interest. There is a printable ink, for fabric, that will act just like copper wire. Do what you will with this info, and enjoy creating :).
Thank you. I just looked it up on google, I'll keep that in mind for future projects :). <br>
This is such a great idea. I imagine anyone who walks or bikes in the evening or early morning when it's dark are going to knocking these out to improve the visibility. Great Safety idea as well as a cool bracelet.
I didn't even thought about this aspect, but you're right it's great for better visibility at night.
This is awesome!
Neat! Now I know what to do with my old belt and those 400pcs of pink LEDs :-)
very cool. May make similar for bike trouser clips. thanks for sharing
nice idea:-P
