I’ve been really swooning over a certain sequin camera strap that’s taunted me on Pinterest for the last month.

After little deliberation and a week or two of procrastination, I’ve finally busted out a DIY version for me… I mean, for you.

Just in case knowing this project costs less than a fraction of the real deal doesn’t convince you, it’s also super comfortable, durable and simple.

Materials And Tools Needed To Make A DIY No Sew Sequin Camera Strap

Soft leather strip — I purchased a beige 42″ length x 1 1/2″ width suede strip for about $10 for my local Hobby Lobby craft store. You can also find leather straps online.

Double-cap rivets – I used 1/4″ nickel rivets.

Sequin ribbon/trim

Rotary punch

Tacky glue

2 x D-ring

2 x Swivel hook — You can find them in the jewelry section of craft stores or this pack online includes swivel hooks and D-rings.

How To Make A DIY No Sew Sequin Camera Strap

First, measure and mark where you want the sequin trim to be placed. I centered mine all the way around.

Next, place a thin line of tacky glue down the middle and let it set for a few seconds.

Then, place your sequins on top.

Tuck each end of your sequin strip under with a bit of glue so that it doesn’t fray over time.

Set something of weight over it so that everything dries flat.

Once everything is dry, measure and mark where you want to place your D-rings. My D-ring was just a bit too wide, so I cute triangles on each side of my leather strap so that it wouldn’t bulge, and then Tacky glued everything in place.

Again, let it dry with a weight on top.

To make sure the rings are completely secure (we don’t want any camera fatalities, you know), we’ll insert rivets.

Using a rotary punch, cut a small hole through the strap and insert two small rivets on both sides.

If you’re new to using rivets, they’re much simpler than they look! This is a great how-to video for them.

Lastly, twist your swivel hooks onto the D-rings just like you would a keychain, and you’re finished!
