i have just bought 500 bright colour buttons but now i dont know what to do with them! any ideaS?
I made button braceletts, and earings...
how about a button embellished purse
I really want to make some button earrings, just plain stud earring posts with a button attached to the front.
And how about a button necklace and matching bracelet? I'm wanting to make myself one of those as well haha.
I had a quick search on Craftster and found this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=248911.0. I'm enjoying having a look through now, some of the stuff people have made is really cool
thank you! i love that wesute
Button centers for Fabric Yo-Yos
Heres a few thing people have done with buttons on this site
I always think its cute when someone makes a plushie and uses buttons for the eyes ^^
you could find a bag knitting pattern then cover it with buttons
You could probably make an awesome belt with that many buttons or a chain bag but use the buttons to make the chain...
I also have about 1000 buttons that I just got for free from a friend...and what I plan on making, once i get some wide elastics i'm making some stretchy button cuffs... once I do get the elastic i promise to make a tutorial
I also use buttons when i make cellphone/mp3 player holders, purses, amigurumi (eyes and such)...theres tonnes of uses for them
wow! you guys have amazing ideas! XD ta!
I love buttons and have lots of them. One thing I've done is to make button flowers using wire for stems (each flower is one button, but you could stack them or create larger flowers). I feed the wire through the button holes, twist below to hold it, then add another button and do the same. I then twist together all of the flowers/stems and put them into a tiny vase. You can manipulate the arrangement, since the stems are wire. If it's too top-heavy, you can put marbles or sand in the vase. I don't know if I explained that very well, but if you're interested, I'll send a photo.
Something i want to try is to take one of the many small frames I have and create a Christmas craft. Some of my ideas involve using fabric background, felt tree with button ornaments and/or buttons added to the frame as well.
buy a cheap calico bag and arrange the buttons over one side of it in a rainbow!
Oooohh I wish someone offers buttons to me..
I would go for a big colourful ring and stud earings..
u can also glue them onto an hairband
