Quick and Easy Earrings

Using charms from the craft store make for quick and affordable earrings.


Making earrings from charms is so easy. These beautiful butterfly wings came in a set of four pairs from Hobby Lobby. I was able to make four pairs of earrings for less than $10, making these a very affordable gift. Charms and buttons make for quick and easy earrings.


Using two jewelry pliers, charms, and matching ear wires I was able to make four pairs of earrings in no time at all.

These were such a huge hit in my house, I have to go and buy a few more sets of charms so we don’t fight over the colors!

Making your own button earrings is a fun way to make earrings for a special outfit or event. I made these for my daughters for a recent trip to Disney. They are easy to make and cost-effective. Button earrings also make a great gift.

  • Wire nippers
  • adhesive
  • buttons (mine were found at Walmart)
  • earring findings
  • sanding block or nail file

The materials needed are rather simple and you can use a variety of options. For cutting the backs off the buttons I used wire nippers but utility scissors can also work well. If you have a Dremel, that would do the trick. For the adhesive, I used Super Glue Gel. E6000 or a jewelry-making adhesive will also work. To sand the backs a nail file, sanding block, sandpaper, or a Dremel can file down any rough edges. The video tutorial below will show you the simple process.

How To Make Faux Leather Earrings

How to make faux leather earrings with a Cricut. Includes a free SVG file. How to Make Jewelry Using a Cricut Machine.

Making earrings with your personal die cutting machine is a current hot topic in crafting. I’ve done it before [see post here], but these leaf-like earrings are my newest design. This version of earrings was made using The Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect. It really made making them and attaching the layers together easy. The tacky glue dries quickly but leaves enough time to maneuver the position of the layers. 


I want to personally thank Cricut and ScraPerfect for providing materials for this post. I am a design team member with Cricut and ScraPerfect.

Once glued and in place, I used a tile to weight
the layered faux leather down.
Let dry overnight.

I used a T-pin to poke a hole in the faux leather and
attached a jump ring and earring wire.
