Crafty with Buttons

Standard

Buttons probably wouldn’t come to mind when you’re thinking about crafting, but because buttons are available in so many shapes, colors and sizes, they make for excellent crafting material. A few examples to give you ideas.

Bowls


This ‘Knoop’ bowl, created by Iñigo Cañedo,  is made from plastic buttons carefully glued together over a hemispheric mold. [via]

Button Wall Hanging


This LOVE Button Wall Hanging from Letter Perfect Designs shows a creative and colorful way to speak your mind, with enough possibilities to vary.

Ornaments


Cute button ornament to give as a present or hang in your Christmas tree, for example. Made by Leslie Ashe.

Button Jewelry


Make your own unique jewelry with buttons! You can greatly vary with different buttons and create earrings, a bracelet or necklace exactly the way you want it. Earrings made by Olivia, necklace by Nikki and the bracelet by lillyella.

Button Lamp Shade


If you have a boring lamp shade, perhaps this is a fun way to spice it up a bit: glue buttons on it! Instead of choosing different colors buttons, you can also go for one or two colors to match the colors of the room, or create a pattern instead of randomly putting the buttons on the lamp shade.

Button Lamp


If you don’t like covering a lamp shade with buttons, you could always try to make a lamp entirely from buttons. At least that is what Singapore-based studio Formistry has done. Resin buttons are layered to allow for different light intensities. It also forms a nice pattern on the wall, as can be seen from the second image. [via]

Button craftiness with household items

Button Artwork


Very cute, this button tree made by Lisa Jordan! If you’ve created a pretty button shape like this one, you can put it onto a canvas and hang it on your wall. Or you can create an artwork and add the buttons later, like this pretty painting with buttons from Art by Wiley:
