Faux Leather Hanging Straps for a Gallery Wall
I’ve seen a trend of leather straps hanging beautiful high end picture frames and really loved the look, however, couldn’t justify the price.. so I created my own take on it.
Measure your straps
I measured out my straps to be 1.5” wide.
i marked 1.5” both at the top and bottom of my leather piece then used my level to draw a straight line between them.
This is what my leather looked like after I had it all measured and marked.
After cutting my leather strips i folded the straps in half then used a small amount of blue loctite to secure the top together.
Apply the blue loctite
As a side note, you could use a hot glue gun or even double sided tape. This step is to keep the tops together and straight.
Pinch the top together
Using a push pin through the center of the top of your leather strip, push it into the wall centered about your photo.
I used smaller excess leather ‘straps’ on this set of photos in our living room to give them a more custom look.
