natural wood and leather layered shape earrings

Make super easy and trendy earrings with pre-cut wood shapes!
Step 1

First, paint your wood shapes. Set aside to dry.

Step 2

Now, click here for the teardrop shape in Cricut® Design Space™.

Step 3

Place your leather piece on a strong grip mat and cut out the shapes using a deep blade.

Step 4

Layer one of your painted wood shapes on top of a leather teardrop shape and mark hole at the top of your wood shape with a toothpick (or pen). Punch the hole in your leather teardrop shape with hole punch pliers.

Step 5

Open a jump ring, slide it through the hole in your wood shape and leather teardrop, add a fishhook ear wire and close the jump ring.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 6

Repeat Steps 4 and 5 for a second earring.
