Drink Up! DIY Holiday Gift Idea: A Leather-Wrapped Flask DIY to Spread Holiday Cheer (and Alcohol)

Ready for a DIY Holiday Gift Idea? Check out this one for a (stamped) leather-wrapped flask. These are more toward the girlie side, but you could totally recreate a more masculine version for guys with a different flask. #holidaygift #christmas #colorful #leather #stampedleather #giftideas #gift #christmasgift #stockingstuffers

Using this leather wrapped gift idea as a jumping off point, I made some DIY gifts anyone on your list will appreciate (as long as they like alcohol or cute stuff): leather wrapped message flasks!

It helps that I used (possibly) the cutest flasks on the planet to bring this idea together. But you can recreate this DIY holiday gift idea with ANY flask (and any style) – which means you can make one for ANYONE on your list – guys included. Also makes a fun stocking stuffer!


How to make stamped leather wrapped flask for holiday stocking stuffers, etc. #holidaygift #christmas #colorful #leather #stampedleather #giftideas #gift #christmasgift #stockingstuffers

Materials:

How To:

1. Wrap a piece of leather around your flask and make a mark where the two just barely touch. You want the leather to meet in the back (or be close at least) without overlapping.

2. Next, arrange your stamps in the order that they’ll be stamped for your message. Place the first letter straight up and down onto the leather strap and strike the hammer down onto the top of the stamp handle. In case you’re wondering, you can use a regular hammer too, but I think a stamping hammer is easier to manage, personally.

3. Remove that letter and start the process again with the next letter. Continue this until your message, note, or name plate is complete.

4. Then punch two holes on each end of the leather strap with a hole punch, as shown in photo. Wrap the leather strap around the flask. Then, stitch the leather ends together through the holes you just punched, with a needle and thread. Double or triple knot the ends and cut of excess. If you can knot it underneath so it’s not visible, that would be ideal.

And that’s it! From there you can throw them into holiday stockings as DIY stocking stuffers OR wrap them up and give them as holiday gifts to friends, family, and everyone else!

The versions that are stamped with names would be cool placecard alternatives too for holiday dinners or and other get-togethers. What do you think?

It’s very original! I really love it, because it’s so fresh , colourful and it’s like Alice in Wonderland “Drink me”, “Eat me”.

I hadn’t thought of the Alive in Wonderland reference, but you’re totally right!
