I love wearing fun holiday jewelry, but sometimes it can be expensive or difficult to find! Especially considering the limited amount of time you can wear cute holiday jewelry! Buttons make really great jewelry options, and it’s so easy and inexpensive to make your own earrings using your favorite holiday buttons. I turned these sweet “Candy Treats” 3D Buttons into some simple, but adorable DIY candy earrings in just a few minutes! With all of the cute Buttons Galore 3D holiday buttons, there are so many adorable options for your own holiday style!
Supplies needed to make DIY Candy Earrings:
- Buttons Galore “Candy Treats” 3D Buttons
- Blank Earring Posts
- Strong Glue
- Wire Snips or Button Shank Removers
Instructions to make DIY candy earrings:
User a pair of wire snips or a button shank remover to cut the shank off of the back of the button. Clip it off as close to the back as possible. You can disassemble the button and snip the shank off and then reassemble the button with a little bit of glue if you want to get it really close, but I don’t find it necessary for the function of the earrings.
Add a dot of strong glue to the back of the Candy Treats button. Your glue should dry completely clear and state that it can bond with metal and plastic.
Place the blank earring post onto the strong glue and press down gently. Hold in place for several minutes to allow the glue a nice grip. Most strong glues have a little bit of cure time before they’re fully set. You should allow it to cure for at least 24 hours. Leave your earrings to cure a few days before wearing for the best results.
Now you have your DIY candy earrings – cute, custom holiday jewelry that you’ve made for just a few dollars and in no time at all!
