How to Make DIY Leaf Shaped Earrings

Featured

Inspired by fall, these DIY leaf earrings are a great way to up cycle leather or material scraps. I really like how light they are, and you can make them in many colours!

Watch the video below to learn how to make your own DIY leaf earrings.

The Supplies

Leather scrap
Scissors
Jump rings
Fish eye earring hooks
Leather hole punch

The Steps

Take your leather piece and cut out the leaf shape

Use your first piece as an outline to cut out the second earring

To give the earring more detail I cut five small slits starting from the bottom moving upwards on each side of the earring. Repeat on the on the other earring

Take the leather hole punch and make a small hole at the top of the earring. Repeat on the other side

Open up your jump ring and put one jump ring through each of the holes

Add a fish eye earring hook to each jump ring

Close the jump rings

And you’re done!

I hope you fall for these earrings as much as I did!

Hello!

It’s been a while since I’ve written, but it feels good to be blogging again. During my break I visited New York City, celebrated my birthday and enjoyed the last warm days of summer hanging out with friends. I have to admit I fell out of habit and became unmotivated to write, but I did manage to create some new DIYs and I’m excited to share!

This DIY braided belt is a nice transition back into things because it’s easy to make, and it requires very few supplies. Read on to learn how to make it.
