DIY… Chanel!? I know. Two words that don’t really go together. This all started this summer – a bunch of us were out in the Hamptons remarking over Dree‘s gorgeous Chanel ring. Turns out, her friend had made it for her out of a vintage Chanel button. Pretty brilliant, no? This is the best to add a little Chanel to your life for less (you could also make stud earrings, too!) I spent hours trolling eBay for the buttons and personally like the peacoat style ones the best… they’re nice and big!
This one is as easy as it gets!
Using your wire nippers, remove the shank. This may take a little while to get it nice and smooth. You could also use a metal file.
It will look like this.
Apply a drop of glue to the back of your ring form.
Carefully stick your ring form to the back of the button and press for 30 seconds.
Allow to dry!
