How To Make Leather Earrings

These fantastic leather earrings are made by pressing heat vinyl that has been cut with the Cricut onto the leather.

This is wonderful because you will be able to see the design on both sides of the earrings.

That’s especially great for people with shorter hair or if you wear your hair up. Okay, let’s get started.

How Hot Does The Cricut EasyPress Mini Get?

This will heat up to 400 degrees F. The heat plate is coated with ceramic and will automatically turn off after ten minutes if not in use.

The Cricut EasyPress Mini works just like the Cricut EasyPress 2, just on a smaller scale. 

Are The Leather Earrings Heavy?

Nope, these leather earrings are lightweight and don’t pull on our ears at all. As soon as you put them on you are going to love how they feel. No heavy jewels like some of the store-bought dangle earrings. Plus, you can make TONS of them so they go with all your outfits.

  1. Cut all leather and iron, make sure to sort your mats so that you know which is leather and which is iron on.
  2. Use the faux leather setting for the leather
  3. Remove from the mat and match the iron on with the leather pieces.
  4. I taped down with heat tape so the iron on did not move.
  5. Using your hot EasyPress Mini, set on medium press the iron on onto the leather, press for about 20 seconds.
  6. Add earring hooks and jump rings accordingly.
  7. See video for reference.

I have heard that people put foil on the back on the earrings for them to be more sturdy??? so they don't curl?? is that necessary?

No it's not.

Did you iron the vinyl on to the back side (cloth) or glitter side of the faux leather?

There is no glitter, but I pressed to the front side, or the side you would see.

IThe rotary blade.


Monday 6th of April 2020

Hi, great tutorial! I have a question... I am not seeing the information on the actual blade and housing you used. I see You mention the fabric mat at the end so I am assuming (you know what happens there) we will need to use the fabric blade??? TIA

Can you tell me how to make the silver designs you put over your leather earrings? Is this an SVG file and if so where can I find it.

Also, I cannot download your leather earrings SVG file.
