DIY Button Earrings

Etsy is one of my favourite online haunts. My cart is filled to the brim with vintage wiggle skirts, geeky gift ideas for my girlfriend and button earrings. Yes, button earrings. But majority are over in the US & UK and with postage and stuff they’re just not worth the price.

So I decided to make my own ūüôā

My sister L and I spent hours in Spotlight picking buttons – and now I know why the Etsy peeps charge so much for their DIY goodness – buttons can be effing expensive! I paid $5 AUD for ONE BUTTON! Not a set, one!

Thankfully my Mum the craft queen has six thousand stray buttons at home so she send a whole heap up so I didn’t have to spend a weeks pay on the tiny things.

Note: strong glue is recommended! I had to redo them as I used the wrong glue the first time.

Fiddly job , but good turn out hey?

Em x
