DIY leather hanger


i love to hoard magazines, they sit in piles like makeshift tables around the house! if you have a tendency to keep hold of them too you might like this DIY- a simple leather rack to display them.

you can buy these scandi leather straps online but i knew i could make my own version in a few minutes- it's insanely simple. when i built my leather hanging shelf i ordered an extra strap with this project in mind..

DIY leather strap instructions


1. cut your leather strip into 2 pieces (mine are each 25" long)

2. take a hole punch and punch out two small holes (at opposite ends) that line up together when the strap is folded in half.

3. hammer a nail through the holes in the strap to secure it to the wall. you can nail straight through the leather if you don't have a hole punch!

slip your favourite magazines through to display them! i love how minimal and clean they look..

you don't have to use them for just magazines- i think they'd be great in bathrooms for hanging towels or even useful for craft storage!

would you be tempted to try this?

back soon
