Make Earrings Out Of Buttons. Jul 25 2011 - I love to give handmade gifts. Make good use of your buttons.
Mar 12 2012 - I love to give handmade gifts. If like me you want the button to face forwards then use the pliers to twist the earring wire through 90 degrees. Elastic string for beading can be purchased at a craft store.
You need the back to be perfectly flat so you can glue your earring post to it.
Use a tiny dab of the Jewelry Glue to attach the post. Make good use of your buttons. Hook the bent wire through the button shank with the short end on the left reverse if you are lefthanded. I like to attach these to cardstock.
