(Revised & updated with new projects on 8/9/23)
I’ve found five fun button crafts that might inspire you to create your own project with buttons.
I have always had this thing for buttons. Ever since I was a little girl and watched my granny sewing on the old treadle sewing machine.
I kept a large jar of buttons for my granddaughter to play with when she was young. She would sit at a table and play with those buttons for hours.
Buttons always look so beautiful in glass jars.
If you have your own button jar, let’s see what kinds of button crafts we can create.
1. Button Bouquets:
I just love button bouquets. Apparently many brides choose button bouquets because they are a forever remembrance of their wedding day.
This button craft/art is fairly self-explanatory. Just layer the buttons one on top of the other.
You can secure them with thread or use a hot glue gun. Then just add them to a vase and put them on display!
This cute little button bouquet is made with scrap paper and a flower hole punch. Buttons were added and glued to the paper.
This little button bouquet in a vintage salt shaker is adorable. It would look great on a shelf in a sewing room, or about anywhere you’d like to put a small decorative item.
You can find the directions for this button bouquet here.
2. Button Necklaces:
For those of you who like unique jewelry, buttons could be a cheap way to make your own necklace.
The photo above shows fabric-covered buttons. You could use any fabric you desire. The final result is just beautiful.
You can find the tutorial for these fabric-covered buttons here.
3. Button Pillows:
What could be prettier than a pillow with a heart filled with buttons?
This pillow has a vintage look because of the color of buttons that were chosen for the project.
Below is another button pillow, but this one is decorated for the Christmas season.
This holiday-inspired pillow with buttons would be a great DIY to create for your home at Christmastime. You can find the instructions here.
4. Button Bookmarks:
I’m always losing bookmarks, and this would be a perfect rainy day craft for me to make.
The instructions to make these adorable button bookmarks can be found here.
This is a more whimsical version of a button bookmark. It would be a fun project to do with children. You can find it here.
