How To Make Faux Leather Earrings

How to make faux leather earrings with a Cricut. Includes a free SVG file. How to Make Jewelry Using a Cricut Machine.

Making earrings with your personal die cutting machine is a current hot topic in crafting. I’ve done it before [see post here], but these leaf-like earrings are my newest design. This version of earrings was made using The Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect. It really made making them and attaching the layers together easy. The tacky glue dries quickly but leaves enough time to maneuver the position of the layers.

Once glued and in place, I used a tile to weight
the layered faux leather down.
Let dry overnight.


I used a T-pin to poke a hole in the faux leather and
attached a jump ring and earring wire.

Learn to Make Easy Fashion Earrings

Learn how to make these easy fashion earrings using the new Mini Maker from Maker’s Movement. I love their earring dies, making jewelry is so easy using them. There are a variety of different sizes but today I am using the teardrop die that comes with the Mini Maker. In fact, all materials except my pliers and paint pen came from Maker’s Movement.


This is the new die cutting machine, the Mini Maker. It is a perfect size to sit on your desktop.

Before we start on the earrings, I want to walk you through the new Mini Maker.

And now for the video tutorial making the fashion earrings: (includes a special appearance by Happy the kitten – who doesn’t want to leave!)

I gave this pair of earrings to my daughter to go with a red dress she just bought. So, now I need to make myself a pair. Thankfully it takes little time and is very easy to do!

Polymer Clay and UV Resin Earrings

I am really excited about the results I am achieving with this technique. I think I have only just scratched the surface of the possibilities. I really like how the paint (DecoArt Interference)¬†changes from white to colors when applied to a dark surface. The UV Resin really enhances the colors and gives emphasis to the dimension. I’ve only made earrings so far but I look forward to making pendants and more. The colors are so pretty and work together well.
