Over the past few years I’ve become increasingly fond of Stud Earrings and after seeing some really cute buttons at the fabric store I thought it would be a fun idea to make them into earrings. I couldn’t believe how quick & easy they were to make. This may be my first pair of DIY button stud earrings but I can definitely promise you it won’t be my last pair.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • Shank Buttons
  • Shank Cutters/Wire Cutters
  • Earring Posts
  • Earring Backs
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Nail File

Step 1: Using the Shank/Wire Cutters remove the shank on the back of the buttons
Cut Shank off

Step 2: Slide the back of the earring on the finger nail file to smooth the area where you cut off the shank
"Sand back of button"

Step 3: Turn the button face down and put a dot of glue at the top center of the back of the button
"Apply Hot Glue"

Step 4: Immediately place the earring post on top of the glue dot
"Earring Back"

Repeat the steps above for the second earring and in less than 30 minutes you’ll have a pair of FABULOUS Stud Earrings


I hope you enjoyed this Quick DIY Button Stud Earring Tutorial!!
