Create Your Own Wrist Watch Band




Introduction: Create Your Own Wrist Watch Band

Breaking your wrist watch band sucks.Let's take that problem and make it work for you.

Step 1: Step One: Materials

All you'll need is your watch face and a piece of thin material. This time, I used a scrap piece of floral printed material from a dress I modified. You can easily use almost any material for this. I have used lace, ribbons, thin leather, etc.

Step 2: Step Two: Making Magic

This is too easy. Thread the material through the poles on the back of your watch face. 
*Note: Ensure that the side of the material that you want to see is facing the back of the watch.

Step 3: Step Three: Finished!

Thread your material (face down) very carefully through the poles. If the material bunches up and snags, don't pull or force it. You'll send one of the poles flying, never to be found again.

Step 4: Tying Your Watch Band

I wound the material around my wrist a few times, and used a simple knot to tie it together. Tuck the loose ends underneath the material for a tidier look. Admire your work!

    I agree with mustachecat It's very beautiful your creation. Also to avoid to close it would be better To have a closing system to avoid collapsing the flow of blood in your veins.

    Looks neat! Maybe you could make a closing system, where you don't have to tie it around your wrist everytime.
