DIY-ify: Button Earring Holders

 

A couple of months ago I happened to catch an episode of the Rachel Ray show. I’ve only seen it a couple of times and never actually try to watch it. For some reason… the sparkling lights in the TV mesmerized me and I had to watch. I’m glad I did. I saw the most amazing thing! Ok, not super spectacular, but pretty neat. A designer on the show shared the idea of putting a pair of earrings together ON buttons. Yup. That means they are ALWAYS together.

It’s very simple to do. Pick out a few pretty buttons, poke the stud through the hole and clip the earring backing on the other side. Done.

 

A couple of tips for the process…

- If you have earring that are a bit bulky and wont fit together on one button: Use a bit of string to tie two buttons together, add your earrings to the buttons and now your earrings are together.

- If you have a button with multiple holes: it’s fun to put more than one set of earrings on a single button.

- Buttons that have a single loop on the back are perfect for wire earrings.

 

How many times have I fished around for the matching earring pair? How many hours have I lost doing this? Kidding, it’s not that bad. It’s just great to know where my earrings are.

  1. Such a neat idea! I’m forever losing earrings in the bottom of my jewelry bag, so this will definitely help me keep them together!

  2. That is an amazing idea. I can’t believe how many times I can’t find the other earring. Now I just have to find enough buttons!

  3. That’s a fantastic idea!!

  5. This is an awesome idea! I’m using the extra buttons that come with new clothing, so I never loose the new buttons either lol!
