Welcome to day 23 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Craft Projects.
I hope you are enjoying the diversity of all the projects. I am trying to make several different types of projects so you can find at least a couple things you like and want to make.
I love jewelry, especially earrings. I bought a scrap bag of leather a few weeks ago. It came with 3 different colors of leather: teal, brown, black. I love this color and tried to find a bag that had the most teal in it. I have only made one other project with leather so this is another super simple leather craft, but I love how these Metal and Leather Earrings turned out.
Piece of leather
Jewelry hole punch
Jewelry findings can be found at almost any craft store and are very inexpensive. These earrings would make a sweet gift for your girl friends, daughters, sisters, or co-workers.
Trace around the earrings on the back of the leather. I didn’t follow every little curve in the earring.
Cut out the leather earring pieces and mark where the ear wire will be going through the leather and metal earring.
I have a jewelry punch that makes holes in metal so it also works really well on leather. If you don’t have a jewelry punch you can also use a leather punch or a regular punch with a very small hole.
These would be pretty as just leather earrings but I really like the layering and texture of the two pieces together. Place them on the ear wires and they’re ready to wear. If you want to change the look of these earrings just change the color of the leather that’s on the back.
Not a great picture of me but I wanted to show you how cute they are on. Yes, I badly need a hair cut and color, just focus on the cute earrings.
