Top 10 Button Craft Projects

Here's a roundup of my favorite Button Craft Ideas.   (Remember to pin this one so you'll be able to find it again!)  p.s. - you can find the tutorial for the button sewing machine here on my blog.

As always, you can click on the photo for a bigger picture.  All blog links are also included to take you right to the idea.

  1. Button cuff bracelet from Rit dye.  The secret is you start with a wide strip of elastic as the base.  Love that!

2.  Easy Button Lamp Shade - Tutorial and photo from Better Homes & Gardens

3.  Button Tree by Kitsch and Curious (love that blog title!)

4.  From Modge Podge Rocks, a sweet button frame.  (I have this one half done, need to finish it)

5.  A related framed tutorial for a button Monogram from Baby Lifestyles

6.  Sweet heart button pillow by Bugs and Fishes.  Can be used as a ring bearer's pillow, or for decor.

7.  I adore just about anything in a hoop.  Button flowers are surely on that list!  Love this sweet tutorial from Freckled Nest.

8.  Neat twist on a button pillow by Shelley Denton for 7 layer studio via FaveCrafts.  With this idea, you could switch out the "band" for the seasons.

9.  From way back in 2007, a button candle holder tutorial from iHanna's Blog.  Hanna was a girl ahead of her time!

10.   Yellow Blackbird has a great tutorial to make a stacked button necklace.

The button tree cracks me up- I made several of them in the 1990's for a craft sale and didn't sell a single one, and now they are a hot item!! Before my time I guess LOL.

I LOVE buttons. I am always so sad at the astronomical price often associated with the really cute ones. I harken back to my HS days working in a fabric store when buttons were generally just a few cents a piece.

Ah! A fellow button lover! Love the sewing machine. That must of taken hours! My little offerings a little less time consuming.
