Alright, it’s a new year and I’ve set a “use it or lose it” goal for myself with this blog. Either I start blogging more regularly, or I’m going to save the recipes I refer to often and delete the account. The thing is, I’ve got lots of fun crafts and yummy recipes to share, so I’m really going to make an effort to start blogging again!
I’ve got several crafts that I did for my wedding (a year and a half ago!) that I’ll be sharing in the next few weeks. First up:
Earrings from antique buttons
Several years ago I went to some antique shops with my sister in Charleston. We found these beautiful buttons and I immediately had the thought of converting them into jewelry.
Fast forward a few years, and after our engagement, I knew I wanted to make two of them into earrings that would serve as my “something old.”
The first thing I did was cut off the post on the back of two of the buttons using snips.
Then I used my Dremel to remove the base of the post.
Allow the glue to dry and you’re all set!

The other two buttons I wore pinned in my hair as decoration. It was a pretty accent that was more visible once I removed the veil for the reception.
