I shared the theme for my Thanksgiving Table today over on Babble, I decided to go with a Nautical theme. One of my very favorite details is this golden leather anchor napkin ring, which I’m going to show you how to make today.

Gather your supplies;
Veggie Tan or tooling leather – for this project I used the 6-7 oz variety
Anchor Napkin Ring download
Hole Punch
Rubber Cement
Leather Paint

Start by getting your leather wet.

Using something sharp, carve the anchor image into the wet leather.


Cut out your anchor.

Wet and shape a 1/2 inch piece of leather about 6 inches long. Shape into a ring with a clothespin.

Once both pieces of leather are dry, paint them any color you like.


Glue the ring closed, secure with a clothespin until dry.


Glue the anchor to the ring and secure with a clothespin until dry.
