Do you save all the extra buttons you get when you buy new clothes? I do. I sometimes even take buttons I like off a piece of worn clothing before I toss it.
I have accumulated quite a collection of buttons that I can’t seem to part with and I have created many craft projects over the years to accommodate my growing collection. (Christmas ornaments, jewelry, etc.) Since organization is always a priority at this time of year, I am sharing an easy DIY that not only repurposes extra buttons, but also helps make bulletin boards look ‘cute as a button’ as they get reorganized in the new year.
I often attach small shells to my push pins since I favor a beach theme, but buttons can easily adapt to any decor or color scheme.
Lining a bulletin board in pretty fabric and making some button push pins to coordinate makes a thoughtful and pretty gift…maybe as a Valentine? Add some to a Valentine’s Day care package headed to a dorm room.
They can be packaged in a small tin or on a piece of decorated corrugated cardboard – cover the cardboard in fabric or scraps of wallpaper for a pretty presentation.
Decorated push pins also make a great teacher’s gift or a great gift for anyone that appreciates pretty details.
There are so many possibilities of color and style combinations…I hope I inspired you to try some!
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Remember to take pleasure in simple things, Jackie
