DIY Faux Leather Earrings (Boho Earrings)

Yay another faux leather tutorial. I have been working on leather projects for quite some time now and i intend to add as many different DIYs as possible. Today's post is a jewellery project. A fun and Boho styled Faux leather earrings. I will add more jewellery projects in coming days. And also some General information about the faux leather, its types, uses, and other such stuff. If you want to try out some other cool and easy leather DIYs check out my apron tutorial and this tassel tutorial.

and I'm super excited as I have compiled it to basically show you guys how I embroider using leather and sequins. you too can use them to create beautiful designs that are easy and quick.

Okay, so on to our jewellery project.

You will need:

1. Faux Leather
     I used 2 shades: bronze for background and camel color for the flowers.
2. Flower sequins
3. Small pearl beads.
4. Tapestry needle and thread.
5. Silk or embroidery thread.
6. Little beads to hand at the bottom.
7. The earring hooks.

What you have to do:

1. Cut out two stripes of equal length and width. This is entirely your choice as to how big or small you want your earring to be. My earring stripes were almost 3.8 inches long and I divided it into half for front and back of the earring. The width of the each strip is 1.5 inches.

2. Take the camel color leather and cut out 10 small flowers from it. 5 for each of the two earrings.

3. Take one little piece of leather and begin stitching the flowers to it with the help of tapestry needle and thread.

I added little sequins and pearl beads to make flowers more lively and colorful.

4. Take the white embroidery thread, place the two pieces of leather together and stitch around the border.

5. At one end, fix the earring hook and at other a little dangling bead.

Ta-da! You are done.
Wasn't it easy?

I have compiled a little video on this Earring. Watch me making it.
