Do any of you feel like its imperative to hot glue everything within your reach when you plug in your hot glue gun? Well I do. For some reason the thought of waiting that whole 2 seconds the next time around is just too much. Therefore I grab everything. For the earrings I just painted some mini wooden squares, glued them together, and added posts. For the buttons all you have to do is add a post. If they are the types that have no "button holes" snip that back piece of plastic off and add the post. So super simple. For some reason I have been having trouble finding just plain-ish earrings... problem solved!
