DIY Vintage Button Earrings


I have received many compliments on these earrings. People are amazed to find out that I made them from old vintage buttons. They are so easy to make, you'll be searching through grandma's button box to make yourself a pair.

How to Make Vintage Button Earrings

You will need:
a pair of old buttons
disc earring posts
E6000
wire cutters or something similar

My mom gave me several tins of old buttons. Most were regular buttons, but when I saw these gold ones I knew they would make great earrings.

Begin by removing the button hole from the back of the button. I used some wire cutters from the garage. I clipped off as much as I could. These buttons ended up being plastic, which made it much easier than if they had been metal. Repeat for both earrings.

Add a dab of E6000 to the disc on the earring post and attach it to the button back.

The hardest part is waiting for them to dry. I let them dry overnight before wearing.
