Button heart

I’ve been thinking about posting some more crafty posts for a while now. I’m going to post some of my makes and hope that it will encourage me to make more! It won’t really be a tutorial or DIY post – but you might get some inspiration from it?

I love buttons. Don’t know what is about them really but I ❤️ them! I’ve made them into jewellery, stuck them down to make pictures, sewn them onto clothes and made button flowers. I will always gaze at them in craft stores. Buying them so that they can sit in glass jars in my spare room!

I made this button heart a while ago. The buttons were in a job lot that I’d bought from eBay. I threaded the buttons onto some wire, back and front, twisting the wire into a heart shape as I went along. I found the lace ribbon in my craft stash and tied it on the the top. The heart now hangs on a nail underneath the staircase in my living room. Often when I look at it and smile – I’m proud that I made it by pretty much making it up as I go along!

Let me know what you think
