Leather or vinyl
Measuring tape

Tips: Use these same steps to make a leather coffee sleeve or beverage koozie.

1. Measure the vase diameter.
2. Add one inch to the diameter of the vase measurement for fabric overlap, and choose the height of the fabric piece. Flip over to backside of fabric and outline size of fabric piece with the square ruler and pencil. 
3. Cut out outline of the fabric piece. 
4. Pull the fabric around your vase and overlap the ends. On the overlapped edge, measure for your rivets. Make two dots 1 inch and 1.5 inch from the top and bottom of the fabric.
5. Punch the holes of your fabric on the dots created in step 4. 
6. Using the rivet tool, hammer the rivets into place.
7. Slip the fastened fabric cover over the vase. 
8. Style and enjoy!
