{five minute friday} Leather Basket Labels

I hope you haven't hit leather overload yet, because I have one last leather project to share with you today for Five Minute Friday.

I've heard from many of you that are now planning to add some leather belt drawer pulls to your dresser, but for those who love to the look but don't want to go as far as adding belts to your furniture...this post is for you!


You all know that I love a good label and I'm always looking for new ways to make labels pretty, and this might just be my favorite label EVER!


I purchased a Marche basket from the Container Store to keep Beckett's library books separate from the other books on his shelf, but what's a basket without a label? And if it's a leather label - even better!

After cutting apart belts to make the drawer pulls, the hanging belt shelves, and the belted lampshade, I had a few extra strips of leather lying around. I couldn't bring myself to throw them away because I was sure I'd find a use for the extra leather. And sure enough, I did!

I simply used a leather punch to create a hole in each end of a strip of leather {you could also try a regular hole punch, or could use a small drill bit}.


To make the label really shine, I used a gold water based Sharpie paint marker to write on the leather.


And then I tied the leather strip to the basket with some cute brown and white baker's twine.



So if you have any old belts that are headed for the donation pile, why not repurpose them instead?!


Someday when hubs and I have our dream closet, I envision that even drawer and basket on his side will have a leather label!


P.S. If you liked my DIY leather belt drawer pulls, would you please take a minute to pop over to The Bold Abode to vote for me to be the Mega Rockstar of the week?! Thanks!

  1. I love your all the projects from your littles room! Btw you have a lot of leather belts :) Who knew there were so many uses for them! I should have kept all of mine from high school! I grew up in the 90s, we kind of dressed like boys...
