I Made My 1st Pair of Earrings!!!

Actually, as you can see- 2 pair! Never thought that one day I'd actually make some earrings. lol, I looked into earring making a few years ago & was like "Nah, I'm good with buying them." lol However, I looked online recently for some inspiration on easy ways to make earrings. I'm talking as simple as possible because I wasn't trying to do anything too difficult. I found a great video on making buttons earrings from She Sings Lovely on YouTube. She has a great, EASY tutorial!! All it took was a trip to Joann's Fabrics & Wal-Mart & I was all set!

Earring posts & backs- around $1 at JoAnn's Fabrics
Crazy Glue- $3 at Wal-Mart

The earring material you see above is from some old jean shorts I can't fit anymore & this light gold belt I never wear. Currently, on the hunt for more items around our place that I can make into earrings. I'm definitely going to try & make some button earrings! What do ya'll think?? 

Make sure you are following me on Twitter & Facebook for more of my ramblings about hair and anything else I want to talk about. :-)
