How to Make Earrings with Leather and Iron on Vinyl

Vinyl cut designs make personalizing leather earrings super quick and classy. Did you know you can use iron on vinyl with leather? Yep! Test a small section of your leather with your heat press or iron, just to make sure the leather will work well with high heat. Once you've tested your materials, you can have fun creating your own cut design art with vinyl. Let's make some pretty flower earrings with this technique today!

Materials

Add pretty beads to your earrings for a unique look. I think these beads give the rose-colored leather a boho style look.

Instructions

Create an earring design with two layers. One layer for the leather shape and one for the vinyl cut art. You can add in extra vinyl layers for a more detailed jewelry piece. Make sure to include a tiny hole for the jewelry findings for your earrings.

  1. Follow the Cricut Design Space on-screen instructions to cut each of your material layers.
  2. Using an iron or your EasyPress, heat-set the vinyl to the leather, one layer at a time.
  3. Add extra embellishments like beads or tassels.
  4. Add the jewelry findings to turn this flower into an earring.
