Fashion-forward brides rejoice, my dears! When we talk about BTM being the Wedding Blog for the Sophisticated Bride, we mean it wholeheartedly! Leather jackets are the years’ hottest bridal accessory, and today I am teaching you how to get your favorite leather jacket wedding day ready. This DIY “Just Married” Bridal Leather Jacket made with Cricut is an easy and quick project that will take you “Bridal Goals”.
If you are a bride who does not own a Cricut Digital Cutting Machine, I would highly recommend purchasing one because you not only can use it to personalized every detail of your wedding, but you can use it to create cute decorations for your new home, bridesmaid gifts, and so much more.
In a few clicks and a swipe or two with an iron, you’ll be in rockstar heaven. But, before we jump into the step by step instructions allow me to give a shout out to the amazing group of wedding pros that helped me put together this stunning styled photo shoot.
With a breathtaking Rosa Clara wedding dress and hair + makeup by Ur New Image, Coffee Creative Photography was able to capture these beautiful images. The arid mountainside background was the perfect match for the desert inspired bouquet by Fiori that elevated our bride’s look to a whole new level of fab. Think rock-and-roll meets Palm Spring vibes, with a dash of bohemian glamour. LOVE it!
Ready to play with contrast by creating an edgy leather (or faux leather!) to pair with your elegant wedding dress, and looked straight-up stunning doing so? Here we go!

I resized the image to 11.5 inches wide for a small size jacket, so if you’re using a different size make sure to measure first!
Next up is the cut! Make sure to choose “mirror image” for the iron on!!!
[flo_box box_bg_color=”#da5783″ box_text_color=”#ffffff” ]CLICK GO AND CUT…[/flo_box]
Place the foil side down on your cutting mat, smooth and then feed into your machine. Choose “iron on” on the dial… then click GO to cut your designs and let the machine do all the hard work for you!
[flo_box box_bg_color=”#da5783″ box_text_color=”#ffffff” ]WEED THE DESIGN…[/flo_box]
Peel the designs off the mat and carefully cut the excess trimming around the cut area. Peel away all excess iron-on material, leaving only the desired parts. Weeding. Yes, that’s what it’s called.
If it’s hard to see the cut outline you can always hold it up to a window that has sunlight behind it. You can use the weeding tool or use your fingers. Be careful with inside areas of the rose, make sure you live in the right parts by comparing it to the picture in your design space.

Layout your jacket on the ironing board. Apply your new iron-on decal and set! You’ll need to iron this design for at least one minute total. Give it a really good press. Get it into the leather texture. Peel off the plastic backing, making sure all the foil is on the jacket. If needed, continue ironing until every little part of the iron-on material is secured on the jacket. The leather is very resistant to the heat, so don’t be afraid of burning it… the plastic will protect it!

And now that you have your very own bridal leather jacket, here is how to wear in style!
