Fabric Button Earrings Tutorial

As if I needed more earrings after making 19 bazillion pairs of these beauties, I decided to make fabric button earrings!! I just love being able to customize pieces so they are exactly what I want!


Cover Button Kit

Hot Glue Gun

Earring Backs

Scissors or Pliers

 Make sure you get the cover button kit and not just the refill if you don’t have the blue and white plastic button making pieces (see above).

 This is where you could and probably should use pliers. I just used an old crappy pair of scissors to squeeze off the back loop.

On the back of the button cover kit there is this button pattern. I found that I needed to cut my circles just a little bit bigger.

You’ll use the blue piece to push down the back of the button so it is secured waaay down in there.

 I could make these all day! So easy, cheap, and addicting:)

Adrienne - Thank you for the detailed simple instructions! I saw in YouTube that if the buttons are bigger to place the earring back towards the top so that it will hang better. I can’t wait to try this!!

nina - i love these so much! i stayed up until 3am making a ton of these! i am having a problem though with the earring back coming off – the glue gun is just not strong enough over time. do you have any suggestions to keep them secure for good?

June 21, 2012 - 10:46 am

Sada - Hi Nina! I haven’t had that issue yet, but maybe you should consider using a stronger, more permanent glue?

Lisa P - Ohhhh goodness… my heart skipped a beat when I saw these! I love earrings <3 and was gonna buy some like this on Etsy, BUT I found this blog post!! I'm all about making my own pieces so THANK YOU! I usually use super glue on my earrings it works better than some glue guns ( it depends really on the quality of glue though too)

Abby - Where do you get your fabric? I love those patterns! (and do you buy scraps?)

Sada - I think these fabrics were actually all from Joann’s, but I get a lot of my fabric at these days… :)

SassyKay - These earrings are adorable! If you sew your own clothing, there’d always be scraps to use to match your outfit. But, I’ll bet you could even farm enough fabric from a skirt or dress hem to make matching earrings too. Love it.

karli - how does the hot glue gun hold up with the metal to fabric adhesion?
do you recommend using epoxy for a stronger hold?

Peylin93 - What adorable and easy-to-make earrings. I WILL be making some of these really soon!!
Just a thought–if having trouble with glue gun glue holding the post to the button, try using E3000 glue. I do not like using glue guns, so instead (many burns later) I use this glue–a LOT.
