2. Men’s Leather Wrap Bracelet
In this video tutorial by Potomac Beads, you’ll learn how to make a DIY men’s leather bracelet using a combination of leather with lava beads.
I think the use of lava beads is genius here because they naturally have a rough, rugged look. Pairing them with leather is a combination many men will love.
3. Paracord Bracelet DIY
Paracord bracelets are easy to make and you can create many different styles. The lightweight nylon rope is available in several colors and patterns so you have a ton of options to choose from.
These bracelets are also referred to as survival bracelets because they started out as an easy way for soldiers, fire fighters and outdoor adventurers to carry a lot of extra cord around. This can be quite useful, especially in case of emergency. Check out some practical uses for paracord bracelets.
The video below by CbyS Paracord and More demonstrates the creation of a simple quick deploy single strand knot and loop paracord survival bracelet. That’s a mouthful and luckily, the bracelet’s a lot easier to make than the name suggests.
If your gift receiver is an outdoorsy guy, this may be right up his alley.
