- Round cork mats in various sizes
- Leather scrap pieces (big enough to use for pocket(these were found at my local fabric shop)
- Small upholstery tacks
- 1/2″ wide Leather strips
- Hot glue and a hot glue gun
- Cut the leather pieces 1/2″ smaller than the cork mat you will use.
- Cut the ‘top’ of the circle to create ‘pocket’ shape.
- Put hot-glue around the round perimeter of the leather piece and carefully glue it the cork mat on all sides but the top.
- Add upholstery where desired to accent the leather and to reinforce corners.
- Once dry, hold corner tack down with one thumb and carefully stretch the leather to give it some room for the ‘stuff.’
- Glue the leather strip to the perimeter of the cork, making sure the ends of the leather strips are glues together neatly at the bottom of the cork board.
- Tie a knot in the top of the leather strip to create a loop to hang the cork mat from.
