DIY Faux Leather Earring Supplies
- Cricut or other cutting machine
- Standard Grip Mat
- Faux Leather (find Etsy (US)” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow noreferrer noopener” aria-label=”tons on Etsy (opens in a new tab)”>tons on Etsy also)
- Oval Jump Rings
- Earring Hooks
- 2 pair Jewelry Pliers
- 1/16″ Punch (optional)
Notes on Split Circle Earrings
It is best to use oval jump rings vs. circle jump rings. The ovals have the slits on the sides and with the oval shape, the slits stay on the side. Circular ones tend to end up with the slits at the top and the connection is then weakened and your earring has a good chance of coming disconnected/unattached.
You will need 2 pairs of pliers to easily open the jump rings. I use jewelry specific ones (small, rounded plier ends, comfort grips) but you can also use SMALL ones in your toolbox!
How to Make Split Circle Earrings
Time needed: 15 minutes
- Upload the SVG
After downloading the SVG to your computer you will need to upload it to your respective design software.
– How to Upload SVG into Cricut Design Space
– How to Upload SVG into Silhouette Studio
Resize the earrings if desired!
- Set Up Design Space.
Click “Make It” in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Click “Continue” on the Mat Screen. Connect your machine and select your material.
- Prepare and Load Mat
Using a Standard Grip Mat (green) place your faux leather GOOD SIDE DOWN for best results. When the arrow button flashes, press it and load your mat into your machine.
- Cut the Earrings
When the button with the Cricut C begins to flash, press it to begin cutting your earrings. When finished press the flashing arrows to unload the mat.
- Remove material from Mat
Carefully remove the mat from the material. You will see here I cut several earring styles. We will be using the semi-circles today
- Prepare Earrings
If the tiny holes did not cut with your machine, use a 1/16″ punch or a safety pin to finish punchin the holes
- Open Jump Rings
Using Oval jump rings and 2 pairs of pliers, open the jump rings. It is important to open the jump rings on the same plane versus opening them to make them form the letter C. See the picture below
- Connect Earring Halves
Slide the earrings onto the jump ring and then close the rings in the same fashion you did to open them.
- Add Earring Hooks
Using Pilers, open the small circle at the bottom of the earring hook. Slice on the earring and then close the small circle.
Now you have a super cute pair of split circle earrings made from faux woodgrain leather. You can make these custom with different colors of faux leather, perfect for sporting events, team colors and holidays!
