Make leather earrings

Cut out your fabric 

Using two separate colored pieces of suede/leather, cut out four teardrops - two big ones and two smaller ones. Next, take the two bigger pieces and punch holes in the top corner of the teardrop.

Finish the earrings 

Place some leather glue on the back of the small teardrops and gently place them on the bigger pieces.

Then, finish the earrings by placing small metal hoops through the holes we punched earlier. Finally, loop the ear wire through the same loop and twist the wire to secure it.
