When I turned 30 (no, I’m not afraid to share my age :-)) I became obsessed with everything vintage. I will not even discuss my vintage jewelry obsession. Anyway, if you stalk YouTube and Etsy like I do, you probably have seen the infamous button earring. I was playing around with some left over buttons from the last time I made earrings and I decided to do something a little different. This is a fun, easy and fashionable way to use an ordinary button.
You will need 2 pair of buttons for each ear – totaling 4 buttons, earring posts/backs and crazy glue. I found my buttons at Jo-Ann’s Fabrics (the brand is La Mode Vintage). I also found the earring posts and backs at Jo-Ann’s, as well.
Okay, here goes…
1.) Put two buttons together and crazy glue them in the position that you like most. Of course, be careful not to glue your fingers together like I did (smh).
2.) After you have allowed the glue to dry, glue the earring posts onto the back of the buttons.
3.) Viola, there you have it! An instant vintage button earring.
You can also put sewing thread or embroidery thread through the holes to add a different look. It’s all up to you. Be creative!
