DIY Button Accessories

hey

Am I the only one who possesses a random collection of buttons in my room? Probably. Still, I’m sure you have a few lying around that are just waiting to be turned into beautiful accessories! All these DIYs are amazingly easy, fashionable and double as great gifts.signature

 

1. Chunky Button Bracelet

As you can probably tell just from looking at the photo, to make this bracelet all you have to do is a string some elastic/twine through a bunch of buttons and tie the ends together. If you want the bracelet to look really fun, try using buttons that are large and colourful.

2. Bold Button Ring

Again, this DIY is so simple and really unique! Just take a button and, using a glue gun, glue it onto a metal ring. Now you can buy always buy a cheap ring, but if you’re like me you’ll probably have a few old rings lying around that you can use.

3. Vintage Button Bracelet

To make this vintage bracelet you’re basically going to use the same method as for the chunky bracelet, except that you’re going to string the elastic through two holes of each button, so that they lie flat against your wrist . For the ultimate vintage look, you can use metal buttons and few beads as well.

4. Button Hairband

Looking for a new fashion statement this spring? Jazz up an old hair band by simply gluing or sewing on some colourful buttons.

5. Button Bobby pins

Bobby pins are just one of those things that everyone has lying around their bedroom. It doesn’t matter if you have long or short hair, at some point in your life you’ve probably bought a multi-pack of bobby pins that were on special and now, every so often, you’ll see one pop up here and there. So next time you find one, glue a few buttons on to it- try layering buttons for a really cool effect- and voilà! You have a stylish one-of-a-kind hair accessory.

6. 5-Minute Belt

Do you ever put on an outfit and think “a belt would make this”? Next time you’re wearing a loose top or a plain dress, add a pop of colour with this 5-minute button belt. Just take a piece of cord the length of your waist, thread it through a few large buttons and tie the ends together.

7. Simple Button Bracelet

Last but not least, this simple button bracelet is both casual and chic, and all you need to make it is one button and two pieces of string. Thread one piece of string through the two holes on the right side of the button, and thread the other piece of string through the two holes on the left side. Tie both pieces of string together and you’re done!

    I love buttons! As a child, I used to play with the buttons my mother kept in a box by her sewing machine. A few years ago, the grandkids and I made “button snakes” to celebrate Chinese New Year. We used pom-poms with eyes glued on for heads, cut a piece of red felt to make a forked tongue and strung together all shapes and sizes of buttons. They were really cute.
