button earrings: great gift for a little girl

There's no denying she's a teeny tiny bit of a girly girl.  And she loves to accessorize.  She especially likes changing her earrings to match her outfits.  For Halloween I made her some candy corn earrings and these are the Christmas-y ones I just made.  They're super easy to make, and I'm going to teach you how. 
 1.  Find some cute buttons. 
2. Use these handy-dandy little nipper things to snip off the back.  There is an official name for them, which has totally slipped my mind, and they have them at JoAnn's.
3.  Hot glue on earring backs.  They sell these at JoAnn's too.  I use safety backs on Brooklyn's so the pokey part doesn't stick her.  
That's it.  
So easy and cute for a little girl.
