Button Earring Tutorial {{{in 5 minutes or less}}}

5 Minute Button Earring Tutorial

Yes, this is another button project.  I swear I don't plan it this way, it just happens--it seems I've got buttons on the brain this month!  Heads up: this tutorial is neither super creative or unique {however, it is something I made the other night, and since I share all my crafting escapades with you, I even have to post the less-than-exciting ones 
{such as this button earring tutorial}.

UPDATE: A fellow blogger has informed me that the fabulous blog, Trey and Lucy, has an even more fabulous button earring tutorial that you will love {her's are actually much more creative, so check it out too}!

Here's what you need for this easy-peasy project:

Set of pierced earring posts {purchased at Michael's}
Set of earring backs {purchased at Michael's}
Your favorite buttons
Glue gun and hot glue
5 minutes of time

I stacked two buttons on top of each other to create a more unique look.  Use hot glue to attach your two favorite buttons.

Glue the backing onto the back of your button.  Repeat this step with the second button and backing.

That's it--no really, that's it!
Now put them in your ear and show off your handmade button earrings!

Then take a scary close up picture and share it for the blogging world to see!
Not as easy as you would think to take a picture of your own ear.

Dear Comment #4,

Thank you for the heads up about Trey and Lucy {even if it was anonymous and kinda harsh}. I have added an update and a link to this post sending my readers over to the lovely and talented trey and lucy--which I would have done initially had i of been aware that such a tutorial already existed.

p.s. her tutorial is far superior anyway {not even a comparison to mine} so no need to get all worked up.

Such a simple idea, I'm sure many many people have done something similar. I love how you took the harsh criticism so well and added a link to the other blog. I love that you stacked buttons, and I love that they trimmed the shank off of some seriously cute buttons! My ears are pouting for some cute new things, perhaps I'll find some time to put my own spin on this!
Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
