Today’s Autumn craft is a DIY for a gold leather leaf keyring (sorry vegan readers!). It doesn’t take long to make at all and it’s pretty simple.
I love the texture of soft leathers and wanted to experiment with my new craft addiction. GOLD PAINT.
Here’s what you will need. (I find my leather scraps at my local leather bag shop as they often give them out for free).
Start by drawing a leaf shape on the leather scrap.
Using a cutting board and craft knife, carefully cut out your leaf shape.
Paint your leaf with the gold acrylic paint. One coat was enough for me, but it depends what colour your leather is.
Using a cocktail stick or skewer, make a hole in the stalk part of the leaf shape.
Attach the jump ring and keyring attachment through the hole.
Using the craft knife, score veins along the leaf shape.
And you’re done!
