that's beautiful!  I love the simplicity of it, and the colours of the buttons.  I think I might make some for my house, it looks great.

thanks so much!! It was my first official completed craft....My sis is big in crafting and I guess you could say I am starting to follow her ways (with a very different style). This summer will definitely be filled with fun crafts =)

I don't know if this was posted already (I only read up to page 6), but you could put a bunch of buttons on a bunch of string and make a cool curtain to hang in front of your room or anywhere for that matter. =)

Oh, that's an awesome idea!!!

A month or two ago, I was in the I love Jesus Swap, and I made some button hair ties for my partner.


 I just took a large button ( the large kind with good size holes, or the ones with the small hook attached to the back), a thin hair band- or hair tie as I say, I use the skinny colorful kind that you can get in a large bunch. I used the ones that were cloth like and not the colorful ones that are smaller with the gold thread in them- those are a bit rough,and some really cool fabric and Aileen's all purpose tacky glue.- love that glue got it for 99cents! Wahoo! ok anyway.
The button needs to have a hole large enough for the hair tie to fit through it. So I bought large buttons with good sized holes, you can use the ones with a semi hook on the back as well. First take your button and place the hair band through one hole of the button and out the other. This will take some wiggling! Then create a knot by slipping the right side of band in the loop of the other side of the band that is hanging down from the button. Pull the right side of the band until the left side that you just put it through tightens and eventually the left side will but butt up against the button and what WAS the right side will just be the loop to put your hair through. Hope that makes sense! NOW you take your button and place it on the wrong side of the fabric you want to use. Make a circle around it a bit larger. Cut this circle out, place the tacky glue on the top of the button- Be careful too much glue will seep through the fabric and around the ends of the fabric you place on the button its very messy- Place the fabric on the button top, use a little more glue on the underside of the button near the loop hole and tuck the extra fabric hanging off the button the the underside. Place your button loop side up and let dry. Then you can use in your hair! Wahoo!
 For the heart one shown above I just bought a really cool button with a semi hook on the back and place the band through it. Easy Peasy!

I like to make brooches and magnets out of layered buttons.  They make really nice gifts!
