39 Easy Leather Crafts

Easy leather crafts need to be on your list of crafty things to make. They look so stunning and classy, and they aren't as challenging as they look! These leather craft ideas include leather scrap crafts and other projects to make with leather. You'll even find crochet patterns and knitting projects with leather elements, like leather purse straps and fringe. One of the most popular projects to make is leather jewelry, and you'll find a DIY leather bracelet or two to make below, along with earrings and necklaces. Maybe you're just looking for a cute small project to make and give as a gift. There are plenty of ideas for those below, too! See what you can make with leather with all of the great ideas in our collection.

Leather Craft Ideas

Begin with these leather crafts! We have several standard leather craft ideas in the list below, including accessories, bags, and some upcycling ideas! Make a precious coin purse for an easy gift during the holidays, or refashion a leather shirt you hate and turn it into a cute throw pillow cover! If you've never sewn bags before, giving one of the cute purses below a try. They're so cute and it's so exciting to tell people you made it!

Scrap Leather Projects

There is almost no feeling so satisfying as using up your scraps in crafting. If you have a pile of scrap leather hanging out in your craft room, now's your opportunity to use it! These scrap leather crafts include cute keychains, tassels, charms, and more. I love the Ear Buds Taco in particular. What a crazy easy project to make, great gift idea, and actually useful storage solution! Find more of our favorite projects below.

Crochet and Knitting with Leather

Leather elements take knitting and crochet projects to the next level. Seriously, I love the classy look of leather and yarn! Below we have a selection of knit and crocheted bags with leather elements, a gorgeous leather trimmed scarf, coasters, and more.

Leather Jewelry Making Ideas

One of the most popular items to make with leather is jewelry of course! Use up some leather cord with the ideas below. Jewelry naturally lends itself to scrap projects too since they're such small gifts! 

Does leather intimidate you, or do you think it's totally easy to work with?
