Awhile back I learned how to make fabric button earrings, and posted them to my blog. After trying on the earrings a few times, I realized although cute, they really weren't my style and I probably would never wear them. Upon further thought I realized that if I turned them into dangle earrings I would get lots of use out of them, so that is what I set out to do.
For this project, you can either create your own fabric buttons, or recycle extra buttons that you get when buying sweaters/shirts(this is what I used)
Here's what you'll need:
2 fabric buttons (either recycled or made yourself with a button making kit)
1 paper clip
2 dangle earring backs
hot glue gun
Using the pliers pull the back protruding part of the button back off (do this on both buttons)
using your pliers cut off the top and bottom of the paper clip, you want both to be around the same size, see below for a visual
Now string the dangle earring backs onto the paper clip
Lastly, place a dab of hot glue on the back of each earring, then place the paper clip (dangle earring attached) onto the back, hold in place
and... you're done!
