“Owl always love you!” BFF earrings are the perfect last-minute DIY handmade gift.
Love comes in all shapes and sizes and if you’re looking for a cute, easy gift for your best friend, I’ve got just the thing! Avoid the last-minute mad dash for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift and make these cute BFF earrings with your Cricut Explore Air 2!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
One of you keeps the owls and the other one gets the hearts from the middle. These BFF earrings are perfect for tweens, but my bestie loved them and even helped me out and modeled them for these pictures. That’s what BFFs do for each other, am I right?
- Faux Leather
- Iron-On Foil
- Ear Wires
- Earring Making Supplies Kit with Fish Hook Earrings, Jump Rings
- Fabric Glue
OK, Let’s Get Crafty!
Step 1. Start with the owl with the heart. Set the faux leather down on the StrongGrip Mat shiny side down and Set your Cricut Explore Air™ 2, Rose to cut. Be sure to mirror the image. Everything is all set up for you in Cricut Design Space.
Step 2. Weed your owl BFF earrings and set the hearts aside for later use.
Step 3. Repeat Step 1 but cutting the owl without the heart.
Step 4. Cut out the owl without the heart again using the Iron-On Foil. Place the foil on a Standard or LightGrip Mat. Be sure to place down and mirror your cut.
Step 5. Apply the Iron on foil to lower heart portion the solid faux leather owl portion of the earring. Follow the Cricut heat guide for temperature guidance when using iron-on material.
Step 6. Glue the two parts of the owl together and allow to dry. Once dry apply the earring hooks.
Step 7. Now for the hearts of the BFF earrings. Take the hearts that were set aside in the beginning and place together. Using a pin put a hole through the faux leather hearts. This should be easy because the faux leather is pretty thin. It’s optional but, using sparkly nail polish I dressed up the black faux leather to add some additional bling.
Step 8. Add the hooks and ear wire to the hearts.
And ladies and gentlemen you are done. You’ve got yourself the perfect gift for you and your bestie. These BFF earrings are sure to brighten anyone’s day and really show them that you care.
