DIY Button Earrings

Making button earrings is very easy! You´ll need buttons, earring posts, super glue and earring backs. First hold the button up to your ear and estimate where the earring post will go. You don´t want the button to hang too high or too low. Add super glue to the back of the button and press down the earring post for 60 seconds. That´s it, now do the same with the other button. The work here is not making the earring, but finding the right buttons. You can buy earring backs and posts from here.

One idea is to make the earrings in several different colours, so that you always have a pair of earrings that matches your clothes. I´ve made three more pairs for my wife and she just loves them! Happy Crafting!

  1. I love these! I have tons of them 🙂 Great post.
    One suggestion: Use E6000 glue instead of super glue. This glue is for wood, metal, plastic etc. It is the ultimate glue for jewelry makers.

    Just love them. I had an obsession with making button earrings. It was all over my mind. I took the step to make them and love them… I am happy because I really thought I was a little lonely in my passion for buttons. Pleasure to discover you and your craft. This is GREAT. Thank you.
