Finally Friday and almost weekend! Today for my Friday inspiration post I wanted to share some DIY finds with you. I’ve been seeing so many great ones using leather straps lately, so I have compiled my favourite ones below. Leather straps are so versatile, I absolutely love the idea of using them as magazine holders or handles on a cupboard.. Would love to hear if you have used them for anything else creative! Now, lets get ready to start the weekend! Maybe time do to a little DIY project?

You can find links to them all on my Pinterest page or click on the sources below the image collage.
