I'm ready to share with new D.I.Y post! This time I decided to make new earrings. I had some buttons for so long time, I don't remember where did I got them, but I knew that I can't throw out them, because I really liked them. So yeah, enjoy this post and I wish that you will get inspired and make your own earrings or another accessories!
This is what you need to make earrings - 2 buttons, tongs, glue & earring stand and fasteners. As you can see, I didn't have suitable stands and fasteners, so I took gold ones. Yep, maybe not the best choice, but nobody will see your earring back! So whatever - use products that are available for you!
First step - cut buttons back off!
That's how my buttons looked after cutting off they backs.
Then I just squeezed a small drop of glue and added earring stands. (My first idea was to put earring stands in the middle of button back, but as it was too rugged I decided to put them a little bit higher.) Remember to wait a bit till glue is dry.
And that's it! That's how my earrings look - I love them. Happy with result? Totally! I will wear them often, because they're not to big and they're not heavily too. I wanted earrings like this for so long and now I have them! What do you think?
(Last picture is not good at all, I'm sorry. It was to dark in room already, but I had to make that picture quick. As I'm sick, I didn't use any cosmetics. All pictures are taken with my iPhone 5.)
