Did you know...that you can make new earrings with a button and a paperclip?
I've been trying to think of a way for us to make some earrings without having to buy supplies. Buying the beads and all the findings can really add up. :o( Sad.
But-oh, what? Walmart sells lots of pretty little buttons like this for less than $2. Excellent! :o)
That still leaves the findings. But who needs those when you have a paperclip? Try this:
- Clip the top of the paperclip off with wire cutters:
- Snap off the button shanks:
- Glue the paperclip to the back of the button. (If your button has holes like mine, you can also bend the clip into a circle and hang the button on it.)
- Open the loop at the bottom of your earring hook by bending it outward and hook it onto your paper clip. Bend back.
And...pretty new earrings!
Walmart was out of gold sparkly ones (I like gold.) but here are some cute ones I found on Walmart.com(about $1-$2):
And some cute ones on Etsy:
This Etsy shop has infinity cute buttons, you have to see it.
(click photos to see where to buy them!)
Of course, you may have some on hand just waiting to use! Better check your button box. :O)
Hope you enjoy.
Have a great Sunday! Oh, wait...technically it's Monday now.
Have a great Monday!! :O)
