Recycle Buttons Into Earrings
You can make fun and inexpensive earrings out of buttons. You'll need a pair of cute buttons that attach to clothing with a shank, rather than flat buttons with 2-4 holes. Use wire cutters to remove the shank. File down any nubs left with a dremel tool if you have one, or an emery board.
You can purchase earring posts and backs cheaply at your local hobby store. Superglue earring posts to the backs of the buttons. Let them dry, and enjoy your new earrings!

I wear clip-ons but those are hard to find nowadays. I'll be able to make myself as many pairs as I want now-thanks for a great tip!
