DIY Faux Leather Earrings - Hall Around Texas

I don't know about you, but I have seen these earrings popping up at boutiques everywhere! And I see ads for them on Facebook almost every single day. I started brainstorming and thought I could probably make these with my Cricut. So, I googled and found several tutorials on how to do this. And everything I needed I could get at Hobby Lobby! Today I wanted to share 10 easy steps to creating your own DIY Faux Leather earrings using a Cricut.

o n e |  Open Cricut design space and find a design you'd like to use for your earrings. I chose the basic teardrop shape (free) in Cricut Access. Adjust it to the size you like (height and width).

t w o |  Once I had the height and width of the earring adjusted to my liking, I just duplicated (right click and choose duplicate) my shape so that I had a pair. Duplicate for however many pairs you want to cut out at once.

t h r e e |  Click on "Make It" in design space.

f o u r |  Place your faux leather ribbon face down on the cutting mat. 

f i v e |  Set the dial on your Cricut machine to "custom".

s i x |  In design space under 'set material' chose the leather type that best fits your material. I chose shimmer leather 1mm for this pair because I was using a glittery faux leather.

s e v e n |  Load your mat and push "C" on the Cricut to begin the cutting.

e i g h t |  Unload mat, remove your shapes from the cutting mat.

n i n e |  Poke a small hole near the top of the earrings. I laid the pair on top of one another and used a thumb tack to place a hole through both. Doing it this way ensures the holes are in the same spot and one earring doesn't hang lower than the other.

t e n |  Using a pair of needle-nose pliers, open the loop on the fish hook earring and attach it to the leather cutout shape, then close the loop with the pliers.
