DIY//Metallic Leather Heart Earrings

Since cutting up the leather skirt I found at the thrift, my mind has been getting all crafty on me thinking of what I could use the fabric for. I have a few things in the works but I wanted to share this one first.  Over the weekend, I made these little heart earrings...cute, fast, and easy. Not really a heart kind of girl? Make these in any shape you want...triangle ones are next on my list.
 Supplies:
 Leather, earring posts, polish, pencil, scissors, pin, glue gun, & something to use as a stencil
 1. Paint leather with polish and let dry, apply second coat
2. Trace 2 hearts to back of leather (I used a locket as a stencil)
3. Cut out your hearts
4. Stick pin into the eraser of your pencil, dip the ball end into polish, and polka dot the edge 
(you can skip this step if you want metallic only)
5. Glue heart to earring post
&
 Ready to Wear
