I purchased a dress at a yard sale for a dollar. In the process of refashioning the dress, I removed the buttons from the dress. Coincidentally, a friend visited wearing button earrings identical to buttons I had removed from the dress. I bought earring backs from Joann's Fabrics for $1.29. While my hot glue gun was heating up, I snipped the the hooks off the back of the buttons. I applied the hot glue to the back of the buttons and then applied the posts. In less than a minute, I created a pair of incredibly cute earrings!
