DIY Button Earrings

I promised you a DIY today. So here it is. Quite some time ago I made these button earrings:
It's really simple.

First you buy/collect/pick out a few sets of 2 buttons:

Then you buy those little pieces of metal you put behind the buttons. I don't know what they're called, but you can buy them at every shop where they have supplies to make jewellery. And make sure you have some glue that can be used on both metal and buttons (My buttons were made of plastic, wood and metal so I just used a glue that works on all those materials)
You probably already guessed what happens next! Just glue the buttons onto those metal things.

It's also funny to use some thread in the buttons, then it looks like you really have a button on your ear. I haven't done this, because I thought of it later.

Just let it dry for a day. And then you have your earrings..
