DIY Hanging Wine Rack - Home & Family
- To find out how large each pocket will need to be, use a soft measuring tape to find the diameter of a bottle of wine you will be hanging.
- To find the overall length of each leather panel, divide the bottle measurement in half, then multiply that by the number of bottles you want to store. Add about 8 inches to that for the rivet spacing, bottom detail and top grommets.
- Decide on the desired width for the panels, based on the wine bottle, ours is 8”, then mark out and cut the leather panels with an x-acto knife on a cutting mat.
- To create the pointed bottom detail, use a ruler to mark a few inches up from the bottom on each side of both panels then use a straight edge from the center to mark out a pointed bottom on each panel. Cut the bottom corners off.
- Place one panel on top of the other with the rough sides facing each other. Mark out the spacing for each bottle and the spacing for the four top grommets.
- Punch a hole where each rivet and grommet will go with the punch sets and a hammer. PRO TIP: place a wood block underneath each time place you punch or hammer set to protect your work surface.
- Place the grommets then secure each in place with set and hammer.
- Place rivets then secure each in place with set and hammer.
- Tie off a length of leather cording to each grommet at the top, then tie all the lengths into a knot at the top to form a triangular shape.
- Hang on a cup hook inserted into a wall stud for stability then enjoy!
