DIY Preppy Leather Back Statement Earrings

My love for statement earrings dates back to my 13th birthday when I was *finally* allowed to get my ears pierced! For the last 16 years, I’ve been adding to my ear bob collection and some of my favorite pieces are ones I designed or DIY-ed myself! After seeing THIS pair of earrings, I knew I had to attempt my own “inspired by” version to share with y’all! You can make these earrings with any color combination your heart desires and the best part is they pack a huge statement-making punch without hanging too heavily on your earlobes or your wallet! Scroll down for full video tutorial and supplies list!

    These are just stunning! Too bad I don’t have my ears pierced… I know, I know – I just may be the last person on earth to not have her ears pierced.
