Hometalk: DIY Leather Projects

Upcycled Leather Crafts

How you heard of Hometalk? It’s a great site where you can find  home and garden related DIY tutorials posted by homeowners and bloggers. I was referred to Hometalk by a fellow blogger earlier in the year and fell in love with the site immediately.

Unlike Pinterest, Hometalk focuses exclusively on home and garden related projects. The best thing about this site is that these projects are truly tested and created by those who post them. Don’t get me wrong, I love Pinterest, but there have been many times I have tackled a DIY and had it fail.

Hometalk asked me to curate a board of leather crafts today. Since that is a material I love to work with, I was thrilled for the invitation.  Many of the tutorials I found were based on upcycling leather. I love it when you can take something considered “trash” and turn it into a work of art. As in the case of my two leather projects: the Kirigami Leather Planter and the Leather Air Plant Pockets, I used leather scraps for an old leather jacket I purchased at thrift store for $5 and left over pleather from an upholstery project.

Enjoy browsing through the projects and gather some great ideas. I am sure after you look at the leather belt door mat, you’ll be heading to the thrift store today!
