Painting Leather Handbags-Video
If you are thinking of letting your well-used handbags go because they look bland and you have lost interest, I found a video for those who like to be creative. You don’t have to be a professional to start painting leather handbags but be open to the idea. You can give your bag a complete makeover decorating it as shown in the video or touch it up to your liking.
The video features ‘tooled leather’ handbags which is leather that has been worked on, having a design like initials, a pattern or any type of decorative look to it. The leather is soft and easy to work with. Along with painting and decorating a handbag, you can also use a wallet or belt. This can be for a man’s bag, wallet or belt as well but adding an initial or favorite symbol they like. If you don’t have a tooled leather bag you can find one online or at a thrift store. There are many sizes and styles available along with colors to choose from.
Martha is well-known for many things including cooking, entertaining and crafts. In this video from one of her previous shows she has guests who show how to paint tooled leather bags and other items. Featured are older bags and giving them a makeover with paint and decorations. The video is just over eight minutes long, and has a short article written with a list of materials needed and the steps which I added here for your convenience. Leather bags are one of the best quality materials being strong, sturdy and enduring long time usage and weather changes. Following the instructions in the video properly will leave you with a long-lasting new-look for your bag.
Below are the finished products of two tooled leather handbags. They are quite embellished and colorful giving ideas for how you can decorate your own.
I hope you enjoyed this video and will have fun painting and embellishing your tooled leather handbag or which ever item you decide. It’s a great gift idea for anyone of all ages. I have other do it yourself projects and one is Making Your Own Handbag where you can make a quality messenger bag for both women or men. It’s easy to follow the tutorial and it’s only about thirty minutes!
