Leather Rings DIY- What You Need And How To Make Them

leather ring diy

I didn’t know how beautiful leather rings look on your fingers until I made a few. Once again I was looking at stuff floating around in my craft room trying to come up with ideas of what to make with things I’ve already got.

As I make all of my families shoes, you can imagine how much scrap leather I’ve collected over the years. Lots of pieces too small to make anything with, or so I thought.

Leather rings, of course, are a great way to use up tiny pieces of leather, I could make hundreds of them …

I decorated the rings with the batik technique, I wrote about this technique before in this tutorial which also shows pictures of me applying wax and dyes.

How to assemble the leather ring

  • Make a paper pattern trying out different shapes, transfer the shape you like onto thin cardboard and cut it out
  • Apply the batik technique on your piece of leather, more on batik in this tutorial
  • Transfer the pattern onto the rough side of the leather drawing around it
  • Cut out the ring and burnish its edges with the edge slicker
  • Apply beeswax to the surface of the leather to protect it and beautify it even more
  • Close the ring with a rivet using the setting tools
