Button Brooch

First off....tomorrow is the last day for the tshirt drawing! Everyone is making me drool with all of their favorite flavors! Mmmm!!

Today I took the boys to the library to get some books as they havent really been into the ones at the house lately. It was soooo hot and they were so not in the mood, so it was a pretty rushed trip.

I did however, check out a fun book to help with our Christmas gifts. I saw this idea and ran with it. Super fast and it can be used on pretty much anything you want to dress up. I think it would be fun to make a button headband and hair clips too! You can also pin this on your bag, shirt, etc. I know it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I thought it was fun and funky! And I do love buttons.

What you need:
Hot Glue *they said craft glue but it takes two hours to dry and I am a hot glue addict.
cardboard- i used an old gum box...recycling!
pin back- again, I used an old one I wasnt using from something else.

Cut desired shape out of cardboard. Glue on bottons. Its best to do a layer of big buttons and then add smaller ones

Glue on pin back.

The end. Super easy!

Pin It
