There are so many neat things that can be made with old buttons. But for some reason, when I sit down to craft with them, I always seem to try the same things over and over again. So I took to the blogosphere today to find out what other people were making with old buttons. I came across some great posts worth sharing – and in the process, discovered a couple of really nifty blogs I’d never seen before!
Some neat things to make with old buttons:
Check out this retro stacked button necklace from Yellow Blackbird:
Hope Studios has a very clear tutorial on how to make some really cute and summery-looking button bracelets:
And Ellen’s Creative Passage features charm bracelets made from old buttons:
I think I need to try my hand at some of these. If you’re looking for more ideas on what to do with old buttons, there’s a collection of 50+ more ideas on the Saved By Love Creations blog, as well as lots of other craft ideas for repurposed items, like paper and old books.
If you try any of these ideas, I would love to see your pictures!
