Recently at Remodelista, we’ve been having a moment with leather laces, using them in all sorts of ways: as gift ties, napkin rings, and drawer pulls. Here are a few of our latest uses.
Above: For a casual table setting (particularly outdoors), it’s nice to have an alternative to napkin rings. Simply source some leather laces, double them, and knot the ends together; voilà—an instant napkin ring.
Above: Leather ties make for easy DIY shower curtain rings. Use 16-inch lengths of leather cord, loop through, and knot together.
Above: Replacing the standard chrome curtain rings with leather ties adds texture and a bit of color to a simple bathroom.
Above: Be sure to reuse any extra leather laces or ties you may have around your house. If you need a fresh stock, you can purchase them (or a faux leather variety) at your local hardware store or order online; Tandy Rawhide Lace is $19.99 for a 20-yard spool at Amazon.
