I love buttons! I'd like to see what they look like in hair.

What a great idea! Do you think this would work on those snap-close flat metal barrettes? Bobby pins tend to escape my hair but the snap barrettes tend to stay put. Question: what sort of adhesive did you use?
I have GOT to try this - I have some fun and funky vintage buttons that I want to play around with now...

Thanks everyone!  Cheesy
Dreambelle: sorry, i can't get a pic of what they look like in hair.  Sad my camera is broken, i used a friend's to take those pictures.
Guin: I think they would work with snap barettes as long as you only put the glue on the outside part of the barette (I don't know what to call it - i hope you know what I mean), and I use hot glue.

Very cute, I've been looking for ways to use up my stupidly huge pile of buttons. Smiley

These are a great way to use buttons and people ALWAYS ask where you get them from.

Lovely work  Grin
