With such a variety of decorative buttons available today, is it any wonder we've found a million and one uses for them?
I've been addicted to collecting really cool and unusual buttons for some time now. I've been using quite a few of them to make pairs of earrings.
It's pretty easy, and you won't need too terribly many supplies. Here's what you'll need:
- decorative buttons
- drill, or dremel
- jump rings
- earring findings
- safety glasses
They are really simple to make, just make sure to wear some safety glasses when using a drill! So, after putting on your wonderful, fashionable safety glasses, drill a hole towards the top of your button. (I wouldn't use any holes that already exist, as they are really too far down, and some of the decorative buttons out today don't even have holes!) Make sure that when you drill a hole in your second button, it matches up fairly well to it's mate.
Add a jump ring to the holes in the two buttons you just drilled, and connect your earring finding to that. And, you're done! You've got yourself a pair of really cute, unique earrings.
