Leather Mason Jar Mug Coozie!

Turn a pint sized jar into a rustic looking mug with a simple leather jacket!
Great gift for fathers and other guys! Great life hack for handleless jars!

Perfect for a Summer barbecue on the patio!

This doesn't take much leather-working skills or NEED specialized tools.

In my experience, specialized tools make a job easier...but are not always necessary.

Step 1: Supplies

Love it! Also like what you said about not needing specialized tools. Was a time when a person would think nothing of making the whole thing (minus the jar) with no tools but a single flake of stone :)

nice job, looks nice,..just wondering though wouldn't it get messed up from the condensation?

Oh.. this is so cool :). What a genius Idea.

Thanks, means a lot coming from you! :)

Great idea! Mason jars are so in right now to use as drinking glasses, but they are way to big for my small hands to hold comfortably. I should make one of these :)

Thank you! Yes, mason jars and leather are all the rage...so the combo was a natural! :) and I too have small hands!

This looks like a terrific leather starter project! I've wanted to try working with it but it seemed a bit daunting. Thanks for posting :-)

Thank you! I felt the same about leather projects...but my husband had all the stuff, so I busted it out and tried something simple to start! I'm ready to do more! :)

I would put a leather strap or cover on the bottom to prevent the jar from slipping over time.
doodlecraft (author)  laffinm1 year ago

Yes you could! So far, I've had no problems. :)
