Phew….I’m back! Sorry friends, after an exhausting six weeks completing my Modern Industrial Bedroom for the One Room Challenge, I took a few days off to get my life back together. Now that I’m back to the real world, I came to the realization that we only have a month until Father’s Day so it was time to come up with a personalized idea. Practicality prompted me to make these easy DIY Coasters with Leather for my husband this Father’s Day.

Now… if the men in your life are anything like my husband or father… than they don’t really care all that much about homemade gifts, lol. BUT I like making them. I figure if I can make things that are practical, meaningful, or totally awesome (& frugal!), then they won’t mind.

It took me no time at all to make four of these puppies! I used cork coasters ($2!) I had purchased from Ikea, but you can also use sheets of cork (like I did in this project) and cut them into circles.

Here are the basic steps:

Cut 4″ cork coasters (If you didn’t buy them)

Cut leather to fit coasters. I did this on my Cricut Explore Air 2, setting the material to 1.8mm leather.

Sewing around the edge of your coaster with a needle and thread or a sewing machine.

Attach your vinyl or leather to your coaster using E6000. Protect your hands when using this glue – it is VERY sticky.

I made four of these in an hour and a bit (plus I video taped it and took pictures!). This really is a crazy simple Father’s Day gift that he will actually use. DIY coasters with leather are perfect for the garage or the man cave!
