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

Supplies:

Mason Jar (pint size)
carving leather

2 sets of rivets

cat gut thread and heavy needle

leather hole punch (or heavy needle)

hammer

Cutting mat, rotary cutter/hobby knife, ruler

Voted! I love the idea of it!
<p>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 :)</p>
<p>nice job, looks nice,..just wondering though wouldn't it get messed up from the condensation?</p>
<p>Oh.. this is so cool :). What a genius Idea.</p>
<p>Thanks, means a lot coming from you! :)</p>
<p>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 :)</p>
<p>Thank you! Yes, mason jars and leather are all the rage...so the combo was a natural! :) and I too have small hands! </p>
<p>This is fantastic. Wonderfully documented! I will be making a set of these this weekend. Voted.</p>
<p>Awesome, thank you! :)</p>
<p>Very cute! I like how you made the stitching so decorative :)</p>
<p>Thanks! It was super easy to make, and a great guy gift! </p>
<p>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 :-)</p>
<p>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! :)</p>
<p>I love it!</p><p>[img]http://rb.revolvermaps.com/w/3/s/a/0/14/1/ffffff/ffffff/ffffff/1jw0k1kvcev.png[/img]</p>
<p>Thank you!</p>
<p>Awesome :) Looking great !</p>
<p>Thanks! :)</p>
I would put a leather strap or cover on the bottom to prevent the jar from slipping over time.
<p>Yes you could! So far, I've had no problems. :)</p>
<p>I love this. Thanks for sharing.</p><p>sunshiine </p>
<p>Thank you Sunshiine! :)</p>
<p>Love it</p>
<p>Thanks! :)</p>
<p>Nice job miss! I love how you stitched the sides up! :) </p>
<p>Thanks Holly! :) I love all your leatherwork projects, I was totally inspired! </p>
<p>I love it!</p><p>[img]http://rb.revolvermaps.com/w/3/s/a/0/14/1/ffffff/ffffff/ffffff/1jw0k1kvcev.png[/img]</p>
