I am excited to share with you a DIY Vintage Buttons Craft. I love buttons, and that might be an understatement. I have since I was a little girl. My grandmother was quite the seamstress in her day and always had a mass of buttons. Some vintage, some new, but always beautiful little baubles in my mind. I have several jars of vintage buttons that I sometimes like to spread out on the floor and just spend some time looking through them. I like to think about my grandmother sewing all of my mom’s clothes when she was little and even her wedding dress.
She was so good at recycling buttons from old worn out clothes and saving them. Some of my vintage buttons still have bits of fabric attached. How cool is that? So in this post, I’m going to show you a few DIY projects and some other button inspiration that anyone can do with buttons. They certainly don’t have to be vintage, but if they are, take a second to spread them out just imagine the stories they could tell…
Put your favorite buttons on display in a lovely jar or dish so they look something like this.
I found this gorgeous pink compote bowl for just $1 at a thrift store. The little pink birdie perched on top is a Michael’s craft store find that I accessorized with some pink glitter. It makes for a great and inexpensive decoration.
