How to Make Your Own Leather Camera Strap for Under $10


Bored of the standard camera strap that came with your camera? In this 37-minute video by Nick Exposed, learn how to upcycle old leather belts into stylish camera straps.

You can get a leather belt from a thrift shop, eBay, or old forgotten drawer. But make sure you go for brown since black leather is stained and when you cut into it, it’ll have a tan color hiding underneath.

It’s also important to use solid leather belts, and not ones that have two pieces of leather bonded together to thicken them.

Check out the full video above and, if you stick with it, you’ll have your own stylish leather camera strap before you know it!
