I love to decorate with framed photos and lucky for me I am married to a great photographer. Because of that, the walls of our house are filled with photos in frames, and I love it…

But sometimes I want something a little different.

Something to add a little dimension, color, and texture on the wall.

This DIY book holder is simple to put together and it can hold books or magazines. It’s practical AND cute!

Materials List:

Step 1: Gather or buy your materials

Step 2: Stain your wooden craft ring

Use a soft cotton cloth to apply the stain to the ring. Wipe away any excess, and let it dry for a few hours.

Step 3: Cut the leather to the length you want. I cut mine to be 60″ in length. I used leather scissors to cut mine. You can also use an Exacto knife and a cutting mat to cut your leather, it will just take several passes to cut through the material.

Step 4: Wrap the leather through the wooden ring and match up the loose ends. Overlap them about 1/2″

Step 5: Use the leather glue just as you would use any other craft glue. Glue the half-inch of overlap closed and let it dry. If you are sewing, sew the strap together with a 1/4″ seam allowance.

Now you’re ready to hang your leather book holder!

We hung ours with a nail and filled it with a few older books that we had around the house.

Get creative and enjoy your new handmade home decoration!
