This project didn’t cost me a cent. I had drop cloth material on hand as well as paint and stencils. The pine greenery was even clipped from my property.
DIY Vintage Looking Satchel
I wanted something vintage looking to hang on the hook in my entry and this is what I came up with!
Basically fold your drop cloth material in half depending on how large or what shape you’re going for will determine where you should glue.
You should only have to glue two ends using the fold as the third side. Hot glue works best as it dries quickly. Once you’ve glued your ends together turn it right side out. It’s kind of like a pillow case.
Cut a strip for the strap.
Then glue each end inside the satchel, like a purse.
I placed a piece of cardboard inside while stenciling my letters so the paint would bleed through.
I used a dark gray paint but I think red would look nice too.
It’s already looking vintage!
Once the paint was dry I filled the satchel with pine.
You can really personalize this project. Pine cones, antlers, bulbs, bells.... I hope you enjoyed this project!!
