diy leather axe coverAxe-traordinary!

This DIY leather axe cover is a truly axe-traordinary holiday gift idea! A perfect handcrafted gift idea for all the lumberjacks and jills in your life. Designer Meagan was inspired to design this after a camping trip with her boyfriend Nathan. With his freshly sharpened axe in toe, he accidentally sliced his hand. Meagan created this axe cover as a safety precaution (that also happens to be quite stylish!). Make a trip to your local leather supply store to pick out your material and then gather the remaining supplies listed below. Craft along with our step-by-step photo tutorial to make one of your very own just in time for the gift-giving season.
