Create simple + stylish jewelry to wear this holiday season, like these faux suede Christmas tree earrings!
I’ve always felt a little bit like a fraud when it comes to jewelry.
Doesn’t every girl like make-up and pretty earrings and necklaces? Or at least, aren’t they supposed to? I never did, and still don’t to this day.
Mostly you can find me in my pajama pants and t-shirts when I’m at home and I’m not too upset about it. And maybe my wedding band if I’m not doing any cleaning. But usually not…because my toddler likes all the shiny things to pull on and try to destroy.
So I typically go without which I figure means I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to that stuff. But sometimes I do like to dress up a little.
And so I’ll go and buy a nice pair of earrings from Kohls and wear them for all of 10 minutes before my ears start to hurt from their weight. Then that nice pair of earrings I just spent $20 0n gets thrown into a drawer somewhere and I’m lucky if I find them a year or so later.
I finally just said enough is enough. I’m tired of buying something and not being able to wear them. It’s stupid and a waste of money.
After I made my faux wood earrings I realized that I never had to waste money on store bought earrings again, because I could easily make my own!
That’s not to say I won’t go buy a pair of studs at some point, but if I want dangly earrings I now know how to make my own that won’t hurt my ears!
These faux suede earrings are a tad untraditional but I like it that way. They’re so stylish and they add a little bit of holiday cheer to all my outfits this season.
Plus, the bronze kind of looks like gold and that makes me so ridiculously excited! I don’t like gold jewelry in general but tiny gold Christmas tree earrings are just….perfection.
I’ve found (from trial and error) that there are two types of leather you can use and one is most certainly NOT like the other.
Faux Leather vs Leather Remnants.
I truly and honestly believe that if you are going to make these for yourself or as gifts for others, save yourself time and a terrible headache and use faux leather. It’s thin and really easy to cut.
On the other hand, leather remnants are incredibly thick and I have never been able to get my Silhouette blade to cut all the way through it.
I’ve wasted so much time and materials trying to get it to work. It’s not worth it. 😭
But really, these faux suede earrings are just so perfect for anyone who hates wearing heavy jewelry. The lightweight factor is what sold me on trying them and I am so glad I did!
These faux suede Christmas Tree earrings are:
- lightweight, and
- only take 10 minutes to make!
The faux suede Christmas tree earrings are the perfect accessory for that holiday party you’re bound to be invited to!
