 Do you guys like buttons?

If you do, then continue reading.

   Do you like earrings (if so, then continue reading.)? Well, lets just say that the two get married and had a love child that I’ll show you how to make today! It’s really simple (except for step 4 because it’s a little complicated) and really cute. I suggest that you use the buttons with two holes but you can use any other you’d like… Except for these types. ->

You know, the ones were you sew your thread in the back.

Need: Four buttons, some thin wire, six small beads, a pair of wire cutters and pliers.

I've started to learn the art of photo editing so some of these photos might look a little weird.

1. Cut out two even pieces of your wire (I just cut out as much as I think I’ll need).

I just cut out how much wire I think I'll need.

The wire looks like ghost wire :^(

2. Now fold the wire in half and thread it through the little hole on the earring hooks.

Do you think the color wire I chose matches the eating hooks?

3. Now thread a bead through both pieces of the wire and push it all the way up (that kind of sounded weird).

This is what I mean by “all the way up”.

4. Now thread the wire through one of the button holes. Be sure your threading the wire in a way that it’ll be facing the front.

Dose this photo make sense.

Dose this photo help?

5. Thread on another button and “sew” the wire through the other hole.

I forgot to thread the button in before I took the photo :^\

6.Now thread on the other button like the one in this picture.

I REALLY hope this is making sense.

7. Now add on another bead.

Be sure you make the buttons nice and snug agents each other first.

8. Then thread the wire through the other hole.

9. Now weave each pice of wire through the other wire as the photo shows (it looks like the earring’s in an armlock).

Be sure to do this with both pieces of wire separately.

10. Now tightly twist the wire around until it pops off.

This is my preferred method of securing the earrings but you can use any other method you like.

11. Now repeat.

Ta-da!

This is my slightly scary attempt to do the "evil cyclops" look.

I hope you liked this really cute but simple DIY. If there is anything that YOU would like to see then let me know in a comment. I’ll also surf the internet (surfs up!) to find jewelry you can buy, try to recreate it and show you to make it (or you can send me a link to what you’d like to make). This can also look really cute for back-to-school (bamp-bamp-bwaaaa!), I think this’ll look really cute with a denim jacket but sadly, I do not own such a fashion exccessory :^[ I really hope that these photos look better then they used to, let me know!

Oh, I almost forget to announce the winners of last weeks poll! In a tie for first place we have,

Green Tip

The next time your at a park or on a hike, bring a big garbage bag and a pair of rubber gloves. Grab every pice of litter and keep it in the bag until you can safely dispose it in the trash (or better yet, bring separate bags for pieces of litter that isn’t so damaged).

  1. I love buttons, very cute idea to make earrings out of them. I made a necklace out of buttons a long time ago and I still have it. I will try to take a picture of it and email it to you.
