Use your Cricut to make these trendy faux suede earrings — sweet hearts that are perfect for Valentine’s Day. An easy Valentine’s Day jewelry project.
Unless it’s a taco shirt, I’m not one to go all out getting dressed for Valentine’s Day. Red is definitely not my color, and I have one pink shirt in my entire wardrobe. But I had such fun making suede earrings for Halloween, fall, and Christmas that I thought I’d whip up a cute pair of suede earrings for Valentine’s Day.
These heart earrings come together in less than 10 minutes, making them a super easy Valentine’s Day jewelry project. You could whip out a whole bunch and gift them to your girlfriends at a Galentine’s Day party — so fun!
I love working with Cricut’s faux suede to make jewelry—it doesn’t weigh anything and it cuts beautifully. I suggest using Cricut’s Strong Grip mat when cutting faux suede so that it won’t shift while the machine cuts. Cricut’s faux leather is also a beautiful and lightweight choice!
Heart Suede 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
Heart Suede Earrings Directions
Making these earrings is one of the easiest projects EVER. Cut out the downloaded file on your Cricut or other cutting machine. I used red faux suede and the purple strong grip mat and it worked really well. Using your poker, make a small hole at the top of the teardrop shape. 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 teardrop onto the earring using the hole you just poked, and clamp the ring back in place.
They are ready to wear! I spent less than ten minutes designing, cutting, and assembling these earrings. And since I did the design work for you, you just have to cut and make!
Super easy! Hope you’ve enjoyed this easy Valentine’s day craft!
