If you guys haven’t noticed we are doing tutorials like CRAZY lately. We got in some darling new buttons and decided they’d make great earrings. I had already bought some simple posts/backs and earring cards from Hobby Lobby and we knew it would be EASY to make earrings. Salem wanted to do some football slider earrings for the big game Sunday so we tried those and a bunch of other earrings.
Here’s our brief tutorial for earrings. You’ll need:
- Two Earring Posts and Two Earring Backs
- Two Buttons
- Wire Cutters
- File or Hammer
Here’s what we started with.
In this next photo you can see the shank on the back of our button.
What we did first was used our wire cutters to snip off the shank. The button back still wasn’t flat though and we needed it to be. If I’d had my filer I would have just filed down the back, but all we had handy was a hammer so we used that to flatten out the back.
Next we took our posts and a touch of hot glue and just stuck the posts on the back of the buttons.
We loved how they came out so much that we made a bunch of others too!
And that’s it for our simple earring tutorial!!!
