Easy Golden Button Earrings

I wear posts pretty much every day. I also wear gold pretty much every day. A couple of my favorite earrings recently became tarnished so I was in the market for a few new pairs. Using buttons is such a cheap option! 
I swear I wouldn't know these were buttons if I saw someone wearing them. Love these.
I love the texture of the ones on top and ones on the bottom are a bright brushed gold. 
The pair on top are not buttons, but are from a cheap bridal embellishment set at Michael's. I thought they looked like fun earrings. The bottom pair were originally white rose buttons and I painted them gold with spray paint. 
These have got to be my favorite.

These turned out sweet, too.

Want to make some?
Gather Materials:
Buttons
Wire cutters 
Metal file
Earring posts 
jewelry glue (or hot glue works just fine!)
Assemble Earrings.
Remove button shank with wire cutters (or shank remover), file down the pointy pieces left on the back of the button, and then glue the button to the post. 

So easy. 
 As mentioned above, I sprayed the white roses gold with spray paint and I also sealed them with this Mod Podge clear acrylic sealer.
I hope you love them like I do!!

I love it! I was just thinking this morning that I needed another pair of gold earrings. This is a perfect (and easy) solution.

I just love all the pairs of your collection. All those are looking stunning and adorable. The most beautiful pair is of rose and buttons design.

I'm sorry, but did I hear you say "shank remover"? How can it be that there is a tool I don't own? Please share the scoop....I must have it immediately. I use buttons for various things, and nothing drives. Me more crazy than those shanks!!!

You are so crafty-what a super idea! I would have never thought to use buttons to make earrings and am glad you shared this tutorial. It's official, you've inspired me...I'm seriously reading to jump in the car and head for the craft store. :-)

Congratulations on thinking up such a wonderful jewelry idea. My sisters and I have been making jewelry since the age of ten and started a site hoopsbyhand.com it has everything to do with jewelry. So I love how you also are a jeweler!
