I love this idea because the possibilities are ENDLESS! I'm addicted already. I just hope I can find the fabrics I am envisioning in my head.
Here's what you'll need:
Fabric (seriously about 2 square inches)
Button kit (I found it at Hobby Lobby)
Earring backings (my are hypo-allergenic cause I have sensitive ears)
Instructions for using the button kit are provided on the back of the package, see image below.
Just about everything you need (add the rubber mallet & the pliers).
Button kit & Earring backings
Button Kit instructions
Get the back piece to the button in place.
Use the rubber mallet to hit the back into the button. Don't be afraid to give it a good solid whack.
You're almost done already!
And just like that you're done.
Place in ears and enjoy!
