Fabric Button Earrings // DIY

It has been a while since the last post, but I decided to take a little break from blogging over the holidays to spend time with family. But alas, I have returned! 

You may also notice the little facelift. So I haven't been completely lazy over break.

Today we are making fabric button earrings!

If you have zero crafting skill whatsoever, keep reading! This is the perfect project for the anti-crafters out there.








I love the vintage look of them.

Keep reading to learn how to make these beauts!



SUPPLIES:
-Fabric (two ~2"x2" scraps are all you need!)
-Fabric button making kit (~$3.00 at craft stores)
-Earring stud backs
-E-6000 glue
-On hand: pliers, scissors



HOW:

1. Cut fabric to the circle pattern on the fabric button kit.

2, 3, 4. Follow instructions on kit to make the button (picture of instructions shown below).


5. Using pliers, take the little piece of metal off the back that would normally be used to sew the button on.


6. Using E-6000 (or your preferred) glue, attach the earring backs to the buttons. Allow to dry overnight.


And that's it! I told ya it was easy, didn't I?
