One of the hottest materials right now is leather. Here are a ton of gorgeous DIY leather projects you can make using your Cricut or by hand.
One of the most exciting things about the release of the Cricut Maker and Cricut Knife Blade is the ability to cut leather more easily. Leather is such a fun, trendy material and it works in so many decor and fashion styles. Today I’ve gathered a ton of amazing leather projects, made both with the Cricut and by hand, that you can make! There are so many great leather home decor ideas, fashion statements, and craft projects to make here. Tell me your favorite in the comments!
Where to Buy Genuine Leather for Craft Projects
There are a lot of online shops to buy genuine leather, but I’ve had good luck with Tandy Leather. They have locations in many cities if you want to stop in and take a look. Etsy has a lot of options as well.
Where to Buy Faux Leather for Craft Projects
If you don’t like the idea of using animal leather in your projects, there are a lot of great alternatives. I’ve had a lot of good luck with Cricut’s faux leather, particularly for smaller projects like earrings. Again, Etsy is also a good resource—I’ve had great luck with Pink Antler Sparkle in particular.
How to Cut Leather on a Cricut
I have a really detailed post on cutting leather with a Cricut Explore or Maker. I go into which machine, mats, and blades to use to get the best result!
