Step 1

Spread a newspaper to catch any glue you use. Superglue is very difficult to remove from furniture or wood, so be cautious.

Step 2

Glue the earring backs to the magnetic backs with a small dab of superglue. Carefully place the traditional earring back on the surface, and move it around until it looks centered to you. Press down on the earring back slightly, to secure it.

Step 3

Repeat this step with the other earring back. Try to make them both look as uniform as possible, to create the illusion of pierced ears.

Step 4

Allow these pieces to dry for an hour or two. Don't place the pieces on your ears while they're still wet.

Step 5

Place the front of the magnetic earring on the front of your earlobe and your newly created back on the back.
