Step 1: What You'll Need
To make these cool candy wrapper button earrings, you will need...
candy / food wrappers (I'm using wrappers from a package of Nutter Butters and Oreos)
craft cover buttons
pen or pencil
hot glue gun or E6000 glue
earring back posts and findings
Step 2: Follow the Cover Button Directions
First, lay out a candy wrapper flat on your work space, and use a pencil or pen to trace a circle around the plastic template including in the craft cover kit. Cut out the circles, and position them into the mold with a cover button.
Step 3: Add a Earring Back
Then, all you have to do is use your glue gun or E6000 to attach an earring back post and a finding to complete the look!
Step 4: Delicious Jewelry!
Though these earrings may not be edible, you can make more of these and give them as gifts! You can even make earrings as a gift for someone...just use the wrappers of their favorite cookies or candies!
