First, measure a length of leather cord. To measure it, wrap it around your neck at least twice and extend it down to your waistline on each end. If you only wrap it around your neck once, the lariat will be too short for a bow. And the weight of the front will make it fall off.

Wrapping it twice ensures that your DIY Leather Lariat will stay on.

When you cut the leather, consider the quality of your cut so that the ends looks finished.
