Start by applying 2 or 3 coats of the white chalk paint

While that is drying, cut (2) 3 inch long and 3 inch wide strips of the faux leather

Trifold your faux leather strips. Fold one inch over the top and fold the remaining inch on top of that. Using the hot glue gun secure this together. You now have (2) 3 inch by 1 inch faux leather handles for your pot.

2 pieces of cut faux leather strips

Once the vase is completely dry using the hot glue gun add a dab of hot glue in the middle of the upper curved section of the pot. Place the faux leather on top. On the bottom section of the vase add some hot glue and fold the faux leather piece back so that it creates the curved handle piece. Repeat this on the other side.

Be careful to not carry the vase by the faux leather as it is just for decoration.
