This Leather and canvas wall hanging tutorial is so easy and cute for the holidays! It uses canvas and leather scraps. I have two versions of this canvas and leather project, one for the holidays and one for any day. You can use the tiniest pieces of leather for the letters, so it’s a great scrap buster.
Today is the last day of Don’t Fear the Fabric: Oilcloth +Leather. Wah! It has been so fun, so thanks for following along!
Leather and Canvas Wall Hanging Tutorial
-1/2 yard canvas bottomweight
–template (includes “MERRY & BRIGHT” and “FOR LIKE EVER”)
Cut out the canvas and cut each letter from leather.
Fold over 3/8″ on each side and press. Sew or glue down.
At the top, fold over 1 1/2″ and stitch or glue down, creating a casing for the dowel.
Slip the dowel in the casing.
Tie on string and use a dab of glue to keep it in place.
Now glue the letter on and you’re done!

kate I feared the leather until now, I should say my machine fears the leather. Love this idea with the lettering and it’s so perfect how the nutcracker’s arm is broken. Keeping it real (because if I see another holiday home tour or food post I might get sick!!!).
hahaha! i hoped nobody would notice. His arm was broken about 2.3 seconds after I brought him home from the store. :)
Very nice DIY !
I am making this now! I need it this in my house THIS Christmas. So so so cute! Love your style, projects and blog Kate!
Thank you Niamh!
