how to: make your own earrings

if you've ever wanted to make yourself a cool pair of earrings, this is your chance. 
this is a quick tutorial on how to make earrings out of buttons. its quick, easy and really affordable
enjoy :)

super glue R10 at checkers, buttons R6.50 each at jacksons -in town, i got the backs under the arch for 50cents each and the butterflies also under the arch for 20cents each

squeeze a pea sized amount of super glue onto the back of the button 

place the back on the super glue, then put a little more glue around the back for added support

give everything about ten minutes and your earrings are ready to wear!

hope this has been helpful. have a great weekend
