    When I was looking for DIY bits and bobs to customise items for Oxfam to sell a few months ago I saw some buttons that I thought would make great earrings and this is exactly what I wanted to do with them. The problem was they had a bulky back on them (the loop you sew through) – do you have a clever solution?

  7. Another great DIY, Jenni!
    I had a same idea when I saw some really cute buttons at JoAnns. I just removed button shanks and then glued posts to their backs. Mine were strawberries, dragonflies and acorns.
    LOVE your nautical earrings!


  8. Elise says:

    i want to make my own button earrings also, but where do i get the earring backs?

  9. Katie, The loop on the back of a button is called the shank. All you have to do is cut it off. A good pair of wire cutters or a dremel tool will do the trick.
