Got a leather (or pleather) skirt, pair of pants, or whatever that’s ripped, the wrong size or just plain unfortunate? You don’t have to get rid of it — instead, try Alli’s awesome directions to make braided (p)leather bracelets instead! They’re right on trend (unlike the unfortunate piece you had to sacrifice to make them).
