Easy DIY Suede Fringe Earrings

Looking to try the popular suede fringe earring fad and don’t know where to start? This is a non-Cricut version of this fun craft. It’s super simple to cut the earring patterns out and assemble them with a machine die cutter.

These earrings are super easy to make using a rotary cutter and mat. The styles and colors are endless to what you can create!

Suede is such an easy material to work with. When you paint it, it literally dries in minutes and you can cut through it very easily with a rotary cutter.

I made some Bohemian Style Suede Fringe Necklaces and along with them, I made matching suede fringe earrings!

Let’s go make some earrings!

In this boho earrings collection, I made three different types of leather earrings to go with my suede fringe necklaces:

  1. Geometric Painted Suede Fringe Earrings in red, blue and brown
  2. Tribal Painted Suede Fringe Earrings in brown and gold
  3. Painted Peacock Suede Fringe Earrings in multicolor. My fav!

Make a paper guide using measurements on a rotary cutter mat.

Everyone likes their earrings a certain size and length. I made mine 3 inches long x 1 inch wide.

Lay the guide over the leather and trim it to match.

  • Cut out a small diamond-shaped piece of leather.
  • Using a rotary cutter, cut a small fringe on the bottom of each piece.
make a hole in leather with a nail
  • To make a hole for the jump rings I used a small smooth sharp nail and hammered it to the top of the leather to make a hole for a jump ring.
  • Lay each piece on top of the other, then feed the jump ring through the holes and add your earring hook.

  • The triangle leather pieces on the blue earring are glued onto the earring base using E6000 Adhesive. Let it dry overnight for a tight bond.

Use it as a visual to how I painted my earrings.

  2. Add a hole using a nail and a hammer as shown above.
  3. Add your jump ring and earring hook.

Peacock Feather Suede Fringe Earrings:

  1. Cut two rectangles out of suede.
  2. Turn them on an angle.
  3. Paint two bean-shaped areas on the top of the leather. One light blue one bright blue. Paint a green circle around the bean shapes.
  4. Paint a gold line from beans to corner on top and lightly paint gold on the bottom fringed edges.
  5. Cut curved fringe using a rotary cutter from the top of the leather to the bottom. Add a jump ring and earring hook and that’s it!

I have to say the peacock earrings are my favorite they look great with the plain fringe necklace I made. The Tribal ones look great with it too. I do not like to be too matchy, matchy with my jewelry. So swapping the earrings out between the two necklaces makes each piece pop! Have fun making these!
