Lovely Leaves Earrings

Click below to watch a full video tutorial on how to make this project:



Materials:
  • 3.75 mm F crochet hook
  • Embroidery floss in a variety of fall leaf colors (I used DMC floss in colors )
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • Jewelry pliers
  • 2 hook style earrings (you can use the kind in the photo or the french hooks if you prefer)
  • Jump rings 

Sizing:
  • Each leaf is about a half inch tall
  • Entire earring (from bottom of leaves to top of hook) is about 2.5 inches tall)


Instructions for leaf (make 4 per earring, 8 total):

Ch 4, join with a slip stitch to create a ring.
Round 1: In the center of the ring work (2 hdc, 2 sc, 1 dc, 2 sc). Join with a slip stitch to close round.  Fasten off and weave in ends.  Shape up the leaves a bit too.

Assembly & Finishing:

Using pliers, add a jump ring to the top of each leaf point.  connect them all with another jump ring and attach to the earring hook.  Optional:  to give the leaves a bit of varying hanging length, you may want to add an additional jump ring to some of the leaves to add interest.  For the earrings shown, I ended up making two leaves with one jump ring and two leaves with two jump rings.  You may want to play around with yours a little to see what look you like best.  Take care to be sure the leaves will all be facing forward when you wear them.
