Step 1:
Cut leather to size by measuring how much is needed. Make sure you fold the leather as you will need double the size. Fold the piece of leather in two and glue one of the African beans between the two sides of the fabric.

Step 2:
Glue the two pieces of fabric together (2 cm) and secure it for the moment with a clothespin. Repeat this process until you have 5 cm of leather left. Glue these pieces of leather together.

Step 3:

Apply glue to the backside of the leather. Now, wrap this leather around the transparent cylinder vase. If you don't want to smear your vase with glue, you can use transparent tape to wrap around the vase. This way, the leather will be glued to the tape instead of the vase.
