DIY Chanel Tassel Earrings


If you’re like me and love Chanel but can’t justify spending over $1000 for a wallet or some jewelry then you’re in luck. You can have a piece of real Chanel for just a few bucks! The secret is to buy authentic Chanel buttons and turn them into jewelry! You could make earrings, a necklace, or brooches. The best place to shop for these buttons, that I’ve found, is eBay. There are so many different shapes and colors and types of Chanel buttons. Just search for them and you’ll find them.

To turn your Chanel buttons into earrings, you can go about it a few different ways. I’m going to show you an easy and unique way by adding tassels to them.

Make the tassels. I made my tassels using the technique in my DIY Stacked Tassel Earrings tutorial. The only thing I did differently is I wrapped the thread around a small hammer handle 60 times. With the piece of string that was tied around the very top of the tassel, knot it around the button hole.

Use the needle-nose pliers to open the loop on the earring hook and close it around the buttonhole. Next, place a drop of glue on the top of the button where the earring hook touches so that the button doesn’t flop around when wearing the earrings.
