Holiday Button Earrings

These holiday earrings are cute as a button… because they’re made of buttons! Make these button earrings with your favorite buttons, and some simple supplies. Button earrings make great gifts for all your button-loving friends, too!

This project is my final Craft Lightning project for the year – all week long, Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and I have each been sharing a fun and fast holiday craft every day this week, with some help from our crafty blogging friends. If you’ve missed any of them, be sure to catch up with the Day 1 Roundup, Day 2 Roundup, Day 3 Roundup, and Day 4 Roundup.

Let’s get started making these button earrings, shall we?
