HOW-TO MAKE VINTAGE POST EARRINGS
by kristi of a life through the lens
A friend of mine introduced me to the most adorable pair of vintage earrings that are so very easy and inexpensive to make. I'll show you how...
• Rose or decorative buttons with hooks on the back (about $1 at the craft store)
• Button shank/hook remover (about $5 at the craft store)
• Glue gun
• Earring posts and back (about $1 for a pack of 16 at the craft store)
• Spray paint or acrylic paint if you want to change the color of your buttons
Here is what the buttons look like with the hooks...
Get your button hook remover as close to the base of the hook as possible for a flatter surface.

Use your glue gun to glue the post to the back of the earrings.

The final result...beautiful, vintage, simple and classic all in one,
I think these would make fabulous gifts...don't you?
