Chanda and I are constantly looking for new leather projects. I am not sure what get’s us more excited, the texture and colors or the smell? I just know we both are always attracted to this material, especially every year when we get close to Father’s day. Leather just seems to make any “man craft” legit. With father’s day a little more than a week away it’s time to start thinking of what you can zest for pops. My dad is not much of a coffee drinker but man does he like his iced tea. While my husband on the other hand pounds the coffee all day everyday. But what I love about this craft is that it can go either way- hot or cold! Let’s get to zesting….

  • Leather
  • Mason Jar
  • Wood burner
  • Leather hole punch
  • Leather/Twine/Cording

First wrap your leather around your mason jar to make sure it fit’s pretty snug. I should wrap around and barely meet. A quick snip and it’s time to personalize the leather a bit….
I used my wood burner to scribe some love notes to poppa…
Next it’s time to punch holes all along both ends of the leather so we can create the perfect little mason jar corset
Loop the cording through the first two holes and then begin to criss cross as your work your way through each hole down to the base….
SO easy and so fun!! The perfect gift for dad on Father's Day!
You can slip the leather off when it comes to cleaning the mason jars too!
