1/31 | DIY Tassel Earrings

I’m super excited to dive into a fun tutorial using the Cricut Rotary Blade. Many people may be intimidated by the Cricut Makers Adaptive Tool System, but it’s magical. The Rotary Blade is a super versatile tool perfect for crafters and sewists alike. Today I want to teach you all how to make DIY Tassel Earrings with your Cricut Maker and Rotary Blade. You only need a few supplies to make these, and you’ll have a blast along the way. Keep reading to learn how to make them yourself. I hope you enjoy this tutorial!



1. Go to Cricut Design Space and open up this Make It Now Project. I love working with Make It Now projects because the instructions are easy to follow but they’re still customizable. Size your earrings in Cricut Design Space and switch from the Deep Cut Blade to the Rotary Blade. With its precision cutting ability, it can turn within a quarter of an inch to achieve a cut that scissors never could.

2. Lay your piece of leather finished side down onto the top left corner of your StrongGrip cutting mat. Be sure to move the stars out of the way of the leather. Watch the Rotary Blade cut the leather beautifully.

3. When the Cricut Maker is finished cutting pull off your excess leather and reveal the bases of your earrings.

4. Assembling these earrings is so easy. Simply roll your leather as tight as you can and apply a dot of glue onto the end of the uncut side and hold until the glue has set.

5. Once the glue has set, add another drop of glue onto the top of your rolled earrings. Insert eye pins into the center of the earrings and allow the glue to fully dry. Then add your fish hooks and rock your beautiful tassel earrings.

What do you all think? I love shining a light on the versatility of the Cricut Rotary Blade. That sucker can cut everything from silk to denim and even burlap. I love watching it cut! I hope you all feel more comfortable getting crafty with your Cricut Maker.
