DIY Leather Flower Drink Coasters

DIY Leather Flower Coasters_Zac Posen_Ecco Domani

Inspired by the beautiful Zac Posen summer floral bottle for Ecco Domani‘s Pinot Grigio, I created these fabulously stylish yet also whimsical coasters to complement it. They’re surprisingly easy to make and finished in just a few steps. I tested the paint pen with condensation and water overnight, and both the leather and the silver ink held up wonderfully.

While I think they’re most chic done in black and silver and tied up with a lime green ribbon to mimic Zac’s Kiko floral design on the bottle, you can make them in any color leather or faux leather that matches your home or table decor. Better yet, make and give them as a hostess gift, including the fabulous limited edition Ecco Domani Zac Posen Pinot Grigio bottle, of course.

Using your grease pencil, trace your pattern on the back side of your leather or faux leather.

Cut your leather flowers out with scissors or a blade and trim off the excess to clean up the edges.

Dot your paint pen on a piece of paper first to make sure the paint is at the tip… and rather than drawing out a flower all at once, follow the steps below to create a graphic that lines up perfectly with very little mistakes. See the image for visuals.

1. Find the center of your flower and create a circle or swirl about the size of a nickel.
2. Following the dips in your flower edges, draw straight lines out from the center to match up.
3. Finish your flower by connecting the lines with with a half circle.

You don’t need a ruler for this if you do each step at a time, but use one if you prefer.

Let them dry and you’re done!

Mine dried in minutes, but just to be safe, allow them to dry for at least an hour before setting anything on them or stacking them on top of each other.

And… Voila!

    These are super darling, and I love the ease. Question tho: while they look like they lay flat in your images, I envision think leather (or especially faux leather) cut small and round to curl up (or down) around the edges. Do you see that potentially happening here? Just curious as this has me brainstorming….Thanks!
