Leather Wrapped Vase

5 Materials
30 Minutes

Give your old vases new life with leather and wood tags!

We’ve all got those random vases laying around. And if you don’t, a quick trip to the thrift store will get you all set up. I picked these up for $1.99 each and found the rest of my materials in my craft stash. If you aren’t someone who keeps random

craft supplies, then a bag of wooden tags is less than $10 on Amazon and some string and faux leather or fabric will set you back another $10ish.

These vases are staggered sizes and coordinate perfectly!

All of these things I had on hand. The gold leaves are from a pack of jewelry making supplies from 10 years ago!  Here are some similar.

Step 1.

First I had to sew my fabric together because it wasn’t long enough to fit all the way around the vase.

Step 2.

Next I marked where it would meet and cut. Leave a little extra so you have enough to overlap.

Watch your fingers!

Step 3.

Sew together to make a circle. This is a little tricky as it’s a small area to work with.

Perfect fit!

Step 4.

Slide your covers onto the vases.

Step 5.

Draw your designs on your wooden tags! I have lots of these tags so I plan to swap them out for different seasons.

Step 6.

String! Run the string through the hole and make a larks head knot.

Wrap your string around the vase and tie a knot. Cut off excess if you would like to.

That’s it! Then you can fill them with a candle or some water and fresh stems!

And enjoy a festive little scene with your new modern vases.

    Instead of buying the vases, use Yankee Candle or Bath and Body Works empty candle glasses, combine all sizes and clean up quite well. I use them all around the house formal kinds containers.
