DIY: Leather Tribal Print Earrings




A while ago I came across this bag that I grew out of and neglected like a homeless person in the dark corner of my closet. Since I only have so much clothing real estate, I decided to recycle and made it into a pair of earrings. It's in a much better place now.

Here are the steps:

1. You would need some leather, acrylic paint, tape, felt marker, scissors, earring hooks, chains, white eyeliner and glue gun.

2. Cut the leather into equal rectangular strips. Mark the lines to cut with a white eyeliner and cut it.

3. tape the sections to paint, and paint!

4. Attach the leather to the earring hook with a glue gun. Use a black felt marker to outline.

And you are done! A parking lot is a great place to channel your inner tribal... Well, not really but it had great sunlight.
