Button Earrings

Last week I made a button necklace and 2 matching button bracelets, but I wanted matching earrings.  As I have stated before, I am not a crafty person, and had no idea where to begin.  My first thought involved a hot glue gun and arranging 3 buttons similar to a snowman shape.  I got on pinterest, and looked at some pictures and saw that most involved wire, so I decided that was a better way to go.  I bought a few tools from Michael's, along with wire, and fish hook style earrings.
My first try turned out pitiful.  I quickly disassembled them so that there was no evidence of my lack of creativity.  I checked out youtube, and found 2 videos.  The first explained to me how to use the tools I bought.
The second video was a tutorial which explained how to make earrings with buttons.  It goes really quick, so I had to rewind and pause a few times, but it explained the process very well.
I made 2 styles of earrings, one to match my necklace/bracelet set, and another pair for my 4 year old niece who is visiting for a few days.  I am very pleased with the results.
