A wreath hanger doesn’t have to be boring. Learn how to make a leather wreath hanger for your fall wreath. It’s an extra detail, with a luxurious feel!
It’s time to pull out (or make!) your fall wreath. Maybe you’ve used the same wreath for several years… maybe you’re in the market for a new wreath. In either case, add a little something extra special in the form of a leather wreath hanger. Perfectly warm for fall, the luxurious look of leather is sure to kick your wreath up a notch!
After all, beauty is in the details. An extra detail that goes above and beyond – like leather handles, beefy hardware, or unexpected paint color – is what sets an item apart from the rest. In the case of this fall basket wreath, it’s the luxurious leather wreath hanger that is an extra-special added touch.

How to Make A leather wreath hanger
It’s not expensive or difficult to start making leather crafts. You only need a few tools to get started and leather can be found at second-hand stores. I’ve recycled old leather coats, pants, and belts into scrap leather.

Craft Tools Needed:
1. Cut A Leather Strip
Place the leather on the healing mat so that it is aligned straight. Then, place the ruler over the fabric and use the rotary cutter to cut a leather strip approximately 1-1.5 inches wide. Once cut, hold the leather strip up to your wreath to determine the length and cut as needed.
2. Punch holes in the Leather
Once cut, use the leather hole punch to add holes on each end of the leather strip, approximately 1/2″ from the edge.
After the first hole is punched, wrap it around the wreath to determine the location of the second hole.
3. Insert the Snaps
Now that the holes are punched, it is time to attach the snaps. This is the trickiest part, so make sure to double-check the orientation and follow the package instructions.
First, attach a cap and socket set on each end of the leather.
Then, attach a post and stud set into the remaining two holes.
Once complete, each end of the leather strap should have two hardware sets, as shown below.
4. Attach the Leather wreath hanger
In order to attach the leather wreath hanger, wrap one end around the top of the wreath and snap. Then, repeat for the other end of the leather strap.
Leather wreath hangers for Fall wreaths
While this fall wreath is made from a basket, don’t get too focused on that! You can make leather wreath hangers for grapevine, wireframe, metal hoop, and embroidery hoop wreaths.
Adding leather to any fall wreath is an affordable and quick update. It’s an extra detail that makes a basic wreath feel custom. So, rummage through your scrap leather, and start crafting!
