DIY: Leather earrings

My boyfriend had an old leather belt he did want to throw away. BUT this belt is made of a really beautiful and good quality leather and I did not want to waste such a great material. So I had some ideas to recycle it… This is the first one, the easiest: use a punch to cut circular pieces out of the leather (about 1,5 or 2 cm diameter) and glue an earring base at the back. So you know got new earrings for less than 2 euros!! Enjoy!
