Five Minute Easy DIY Leather Coasters

Recently, I found a scrap store nearby.  Basically, local business donate their unwanted items to the store before dumping it all in a land fill.  This is every crafter’s dream to have a store like this nearby.  It’s cheap and it helps out the environment.  I was so excited to find bins full of leather scraps.  I thought this would be great to make coasters with.  This five minute DIY leather coasters will give your dining room a simple makeover .  Honestly, I feel a little grown up now that I have leather coasters on my table.

What you will need to make this project:

Leather scraps


Pen for tracing ( I used one that didn’t really work so it didn’t leave an ink mark, finally a use for those dead pens)

Cup for tracing


So here’s how to do it:

step 1: Get the leather scraps in hand


step 2: Trace circles using a cup


step 3: Cut the traced circles

step 4: This is optional, but what I did is run the edges in the fire to get a more finish look.  Just do a quick pass through.  I have a gas stove so it was easy for me, but if you don’t use a lighter.  Don’t get burned!

That’s really it! It doesn’t take much to do this DIY.  It’s so easy and cheap that you can put it away, make more, and interchange it every so often. Plus, since leather has a natural backing, you don’t need to add a felt backing or anything to hold it in place.  It stays in place on its own 🙂

I hope that this five minute DIY will give your dining room a fresh look.  Also, the link here will give you 15 different ideas to create coasters.  It looks easy enough and will definitely try these in the future.  The coasters are so cute that I want to share with you, guys.  When I have more time and want to change my coasters, this would be a helpful link.  Have fun!
