Instructions

First, cut 2″ wide strips from scrap leather. You can buy scrap leather or cut up an old leather jacket from a thrift store.

Next, cut the 2″ strip of leather into 3″ segments.

Once the rectangles are cut, use a straight edge to cut off two triangles from the top edge. This will create a point.

Now that there is tag shape, use a leather hole punch to cut a hole for the cotton twine.

Leather Ornaments

Supplies

Instructions

Cut the tag shape out, as described in the Leather Gift Tag Instructions, above. Instead of leather punching one hole at the point, punch two holes in each corner of the straight end. Thread the cotton twine through the holes and tie knots.

Use a paint marker to decorate the ornaments. I added Christmas-related words to each mini leather pennant. Decorate a small tabletop tree with the leather ornaments, or give sets of 3 as a cute handmade stocking stuffer!
