These DIY fall leaf earrings are designed to be cut on your Cricut or other cutting machine using faux suede or leather. This fun accessory project comes together in less than 10 minutes!
The other day I shared a cute set of spider web earrings, cut using Cricut’s faux suede. That same day, I whipped up these leaf earrings! Similar project, but these are good year round, especially as we roll into these cooler months. Think of them with a cute blanket scarf and boots! Adorable.
And I think you could also cut them in a bright green material and they’d be so cute with a little Hawaiian dress!
I used my trusty Cricut Maker to make these earrings, and they should also cut well on a Cricut Explore.
Leaf Earrings Supplies
- Faux Suede
- Fishhook Earring Findings
- Poker (you can use many things for this — a needle, pushpin, or the piercer from the Cricut Paper Crafting Tool Set)
- Needle-nose pliers
- SVG cut files (download in the box below!)
Leaf Earrings Directions
This is seriously one of the most simple projects to make. Cut out the downloaded file on your Cricut. I used brown faux suede and a purple strong grip mat and it worked really well. You could also try leather or even felt. I think a green mat would also work, provided it still has a nice grip to it.
Using your poker, make a small hole at the top of the leaf stem. It should be about 1/16″ from the top — pretty darn close to the edge!
Use your needle-nose pliers to work open the ring at the bottom of the fishhook earring. Slide the leaf onto the earring using the hole you just poked, and clamp the ring back in place.
Done! Like the spider webs, I think designing, cutting, and assembling these earrings took me about 10 minutes. And since I did the design work for you, you just have to cut and make! I can’t wait to come up with more jewelry designs for you. It’s something I haven’t really done a lot of but I’m really enjoying it!
