These simple leather circle ornaments couldn’t be more simple. See how scrap recycled leather turns into super cute modern farmhouse Christmas ornaments to decorate your tree or give as Christmas gifts to your friends and family.

STEP 1: TRACE AND CUT CIRCLES.

I used the bottom of my string holder to trace a circle on the backside of my leather. It is about 2.5 inches wide, similar to the size of the drinking glass so you could use something from your kitchen that is perfectly round or something else you have nearby. Trace and cut 4 circles.

STEP 2: STRING BEAD ON TWINE.

Take your waxed string and string one wood bead on the string. This is going to be the string that goes through the middle of the leather ornament. You’ll see in the next picture how to just bring both ends of the twine up through the middle of the ornament.

STEP 3: GLUE CIRCLES TOGETHER.

Using 3-in-1 craft glue (or a leather glue if you have that), start gluing the leather circle pieces together. Fold the circle in half and apply glue to just one half. Press half of another circle on top of the glue.


Keep the string in the middle of the circles as you glue.


STEP 4: ADD TOP BEAD & TIE HANGER.

Add more wooden bead to the twine poking out the top of the leather Christmas ornament and then simply tie the pieces together to make an ornament hanger.

Aren’t these easy leather Christmas ornaments cute? I love the rustic look of the leather mixed with the modern farmhouse feel of the ornament.

    Thrift stores are often a good source to find pliable leather suitable for crafts, at low prices.

    Look for leather garments such as skirts, in small sizes.
