Button Earrings

Sorry I've been M.I.A. lately.  I had a baby with double ear infections and a screaming hot fever that wouldn't go away.   Once she was better, we went off to play for the week up north to see my family.  Don't worry though.  Whenever the girls in the family get together you know there is some crafting going on so I'll show you what we were up to.

Jo-Ann's had all there buttons buy one get one free plus 10% off your purchase so I snatched some up to make some button earrings for super cheap.  I saw the idea at Trey and Lucy.  This has to be the easiest "craft" ever!  I think it took less than 2 minutes to do the whole thing so I don't know how much that counts as being "crafty".

I just took my wire/metal cutters  (I don't even know what the tool is called but at least I know how to use it!) and snapped off the back of the buttons and glued the button with some E6000 to earring posts.  You can also use hot glue I was just being impatient and didn't want to bother waiting for the glue to heat up.

And there you go!  Here is my "modeling" pose for you and in case you are wondering, yes my skin is that white all year round! ;0)  I also bought some huge buttons to make some rings but haven't put them together yet.  I'll have to show you some time.

I'll be linking to some of these places check them out for more fun ideas.
