Our family has the market on loose random buttons! My grandmother had tins of buttons she had collected through the years and this was passed on to my mother. I’m sure Emily has a bunch too. And I admit, in my new home, I’ve started a little box of buttons myself.
We save and save, afraid to throw them out because we know one day we will need one for a pair of pants, that jacket or shirt that popped it’s button… but realistically, we will never use all of our buttons… well, not until now.
I found this cute little frame on Etsy tonight and fell in love! The colors selected really paint the picture of fall but you could do this for any time of year.
Here’s how to do it:
Neutral colored frame
Variety of buttons
Hot glue gun
Either put hot glue on the frame or on the back of buttons and glue to frame. Push in to glue.
Pretty basic really BUT…
The glue is HOT and the heat will be transmitted through the buttons. Also, even though the holes are tiny, the glue may seep through them.
No two frames will be the same so make sure to let us know how you do by commenting below. And we can’t wait to see your pictures on Facebook!
