Here’s a quick craft you can do in less than ten minutes! You don’t need many supplies, and you can wear your creation right away!
I inherited two tins full of buttons from my grandma. Some of them still have the original price on them, the lowest I found was 45 cents! I couldn’t even imagine buying buttons for that cheap now! The ones I am using today were still only $1.10! I wonder what year she bought them?
Hot glue gun
Two matching buttons
Earring backs – I got mine from JoAnn’s. It came in a pack of 4 and were less than four dollars. That means less than a dollar for a pair of earrings since I had the buttons already!
Plug your glue gun in and add a pea size amount of glue to the earring back and attach immediately to the back of your button. Be careful that the glue doesn’t seep through the holes onto the front!
Voilà! Complete! As soon as the glue is dry you can wear them. How easy, right? I really love how this pair matches, but the one button has a little dark spot. Excuse the selfies, I had to try them on right away because they were so cute!
I love how quick this craft went. Since I have so many buttons and more backs that I am thinking of making more. Here are some of my favorite buttons from my collection. What is your favorite?
