DIY Vinyl Leather Wraps for Any Container, Vase, Jar, Can (No-Sew Tutorial)

September 26, 2018

This super simple decorating project adds a beautiful designer touch to any type of container using marine vinyl or leather and metal rivets. The wrap can be used to cover mason jars, pencil cup holders, vases, bottles, you name it.

For this tutorial, I used marine vinyl to cover an unattractive crayon holder. The simple wrap makes the living room look less like a preschool and more like a well designed space. 

 

Materials needed:

For those new to rivets, see our handy video on how to easily install rivets.

 

1. Measure how tall and wide you want your marine vinyl to be. I measured about 2 inches wider than the circumference of my container, so that the end flap sticks out about 1 inch when pieced together.

2. Using your awl, poke 3 holes (roughly evenly spaced) as close to your container as possible.

3. Insert  a rivet prong through both layers of marine vinyl, starting at the top hole. Don't be afraid to stretch your marine vinyl if needed. It's a very forgiving material.

4. Place your rivet cap over the prong. Then use your  KAMsnaps KX8J professional handheld press or   press to install the rivet.

7. Now you've a simple, yet decorative cover that not only adds a nice designer touch, but also partially hides the contents (in this case, messy looking kiddie crayons, pens, and supplies) inside!
