5 Beautiful Button Projects!

DIY Button Projects

I absolutely love collecting old buttons because I feel like each one tells a story. If you like collecting buttons as much as I do, consider making these beautiful button projects! They’re a great way to showcase your button collection and add a bit of color to your life!

1. Button Art from Busted Button and I Really Should Be Sleeping

Busted Button created adorable elephant art (pictured above) out of blue, green, and red buttons! Find an old frame from a thrift store or garage sale and make your own animal artwork! Check out her site to see all of the button animals she has made! If you’re looking for something more sophisticated, try I Really Should Be Sleeping’s button heart art! She made it for Valentine’s Day, but it would be perfect for any occasion.
