These DIY spider web earrings are designed to be cut on your Cricut or other cutting machine using faux suede or leather. This Halloween accessory project comes together in less than 10 minutes!
I’m sort of a low-key Halloween kind of girl. Although I made a beautiful butterfly costume this year, that’s definitely outside my norm. I’m more of a snarky t-shirt and spooky accessories kind of girl. I’ve been wanting to try cutting some faux suede on my Cricut Maker. So I designed these light-as-a-cobweb spider web earrings! Guys, this is a SUPER quick project for you to make and will give you some Halloween style without going overboard.
This project is designed to also work on a Cricut Explore, if you have that machine.
I recently made these earrings as part of my Sunday Facebook Live series! Head on over and watch how easy they are to make, and then join me every Sunday at 2pm PST to make stuff!
Spider Web 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
- Cricut Maker
- SVG Files (download using the box below)
Spider Web Earrings Directions
This Halloween project is scarily easy. Simply cut out the downloaded file on your Cricut. I used black faux suede and a purple strong grip mat and it worked really well the first time. 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 web. 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 spider web onto the earring using the hole you just poked, and clamp the ring back in place.
Done! 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!
