Here’s a fun way to give those old glass bottles a makeover and turn them into simple leather wrapped vases!
It’s time for a new Int’l Bloggers Club & this month’s theme is “leather”. Unfortunately, just the other day, during my grand organising rant, I threw out a perfectly fine leather tote I wasn’t really using anymore. As a tote! But it could have lived a new life as a planter cover! Wouldn’t that be so cool? Yeah it would’ve been! But that’s me, I throw out. And sometimes just too fast. Anyways. When we set the new theme for our IBC challenge this month, I wanted to kick myself in the butt. But! I had another purse that I wasn’t using that much either and used it’s faux leather for my idea instead. It was a cheap purse that I can live without.
I didn’t participate last month, but you can find the post prior to that one here.
Simple Leather Wrapped Vases

If you don’t have an old bag or purse you want to cut up, you can use leather pieces for crafting.
You’ll need a hot glue gun, empty glass bottles & scissors to cut up the leather.
Cut up strips of leather, more or less in a straight line, long enough to wrap around each vase.
Using a white permanent marker, add a design, in my case simple dots, to one of the strips.
I actually cut an extra strip because at the end I decided to have them plain, without any design on them. But I can always change them out.
Next, wrap the leather around each vase and glue the ends on top of each other, using hot glue.
Fill vases with water and flowers or greens or leave empty.
Pin this for later!
Would you add more design to the leather or leave them blank?? I like how they add a warm touch and some texture to the glass.
