Camera straps aren’t usually expensive (with a few stylish exceptions) but whoever originally coined the term “a penny saved is a penny earned” probably wouldn’t object to a little Do-It-Yourself project this weekend — and neither do we.
So in the spirit of getting you off your couch and doing something fun while simultaneously making something useful this weekend, we present to you: Design Lovefest’s Custom-Painted Camera Strap Tutorial.
Their instructions only take five bullet points, and the resulting product looks at once retro and modern. You can obviously choose to use whatever color paints you want and design it to your heart’s content, but I for one (with no artistic talent) love the cool, classic look they’ve managed to get in just 45 minutes.
If you do decide to take a stab at making your own, be sure to leave a comment down below and link to a picture of your new accessory. The customization options are endless, and we would love to see what unique designs you guys come up with.
