5 ways with buttons

We know as a crafter you've got tons of buttons lying around, so why not use them up to create some fun designs?

5 ways with buttons

Button bowl

For a cute and whimsical craft, a DIY bowl covered in buttons is the perfect project, especially for storing small crafting essentials. For the bowl, you'll need to blow up a balloon then place glue all around the bottom-half of it. Adhere as many buttons as you can in different shapes and sizes onto the glue and leave to dry. Pop the balloon and et voila! You'll have a lovely storage product for all your oddments.

Button shoes

Looking to revamp an old pair of shoes? Look no further than this easy make. You'll have to put your sewing skills to the test, and although it may take a little longer, you'll be pleased with the result. Gather as many buttons as you see fit, in a variety of shapes and sizes, then sew them, one by one onto the shoes of your choice. Once you're done, step out in style and wow your friends.

Button headband

If you've got a plain fabric headband lying around, we recommend adding buttons to it for an intricate touch. All you'll need is a handful of buttons and needle and thread. Sew the buttons onto the headband and that's it! It's as easy as 1,2,3, and you'll have a statement piece to add a finishing touch to any outfit.

Button frame

A frame with a memorable photo can be made even more thoughtful if covered in buttons. If you've got a photo that was taken at the beach, you can add blue, yellow and cream buttons that'll represent the sun and the colour of the ocean and sand. Just use craft glue to secure them around the frame, then leave to dry.

Button bag

A bag is an essential everyday item, and we think that adding a personal touch could be just the thing you need to take it from normal to fab. Sew on as many buttons as you can, and depending on the size of the bag, this project could take an afternoon or even a weekend. Either way you'll have a lot of fun getting stuck in! Show off your original design to family and friends once you're done!
