Leather – Nail Head Sukkos Wall Hangings

Tacks-083013-Sign



I’m excited to introduce my new Sukkos decoration concept. I couldn’t help but notice the variety of interesting leathers and vinyls available on the market. Sorting through the many different colors and textures, it dawned on me that I could easily create Sukkos décor using one of my favorite combinations, leather and nail heads.

To make the project easier and more affordable I replaced the nail heads with simple thumbtacks. The Bruchim Ha’baim is just one idea being shown, but use this concept to create any Sukkah decoration, or wall décor throughout the year.

Supplies:

15”x 21” piece of leather or vinyl to cover the board
1/4 yd  coordinating piece of leather/vinyl for the lettering.
Thumb tacks
12”x 18” -¼” plywood
12” x 18’” -1/4” cork
Gold paint marker
Hook
Lettering-see template

 

 

 

Directions:

1) Place the 15”x21” piece of leather/vinyl face down on a flat work surface, center your cork on top of the faced down leather/vinyl. Next you will place the wood on top of the cork.

2) Pull and staple the leather to the back of the board using a staple gun or a regular stapler, opened. Make sure the fabric is taut and secure, paying special attention to the corners.

3) Create a “nail head border”, by putting thumb tacks all around the board.

4) Copy, cut and trace the letters on to the coordinating leather. Cut out lettering.

5) Place the letters on the board and then smear a thin layer of glue on the back of the letters. Glue the letters onto the board. Work neatly so the leather doesn’t get messy.

6 ) Decorate letters with additional thumb tacks.

7) Outline the lettering using a gold marker for extra enhancement.

8) Use a hammer to bang a hook on the back for hanging.

 

Note-template lettering is slightly different
