A collection of rings caught my eye, particularly as I'd noticed they were made using vintage buttons:
:: Vintage Button Rings ::
Making vintage button rings would be a super cheap and easy DIY project to do at home by attaching buttons to a ring base with glue. Vintage buttons are easy to come by, detached from old clothes and found in thrift stores. Imagine instead using buttons from your Grandma's collection? A simple vintage button ring could become a sentimental piece of jewellery.
Vintage buttons can be added to fashion pieces as decorative pieces and work well in craft projects. Here are other some other creative uses for Grandma's old buttons that you could try out if you are so inclined:
1. Crazy Button Vest
This is one of my own projects, sewing buttons onto the lapel of a thrifted waistcoat, inspired by a button vest seen on instagram. More here.
2. Button Fridge Magnets
Attach magnets to the back of vintage buttons with glue, and you have yourself some interesting fridge magnets. Image seen here.
3. Button Hair Clips
Glue buttons to clips and you have yourself some pretty button bobby pins for your hair. More here.
4. Button Bouquet
A vintage button bouquet would make be a wonderful wedding keepsake for a bride, particularly if some of her Grandma's buttons were used in the design. Perhaps not as easy to make yourself, although there are companies that specialise in crafting button bouquets such as the one seen above made by Love is Vintage.
5. Button Shoe Accessory
Jazz up a pair of otherwise boring shoes with vintage button accessories. These could be glued directly onto the shoe, or made into shoe clips. The button shoe accessories seen in the image above was found on beadandcord.
6. Button Art
There are hundred's of ways to use vintage buttons in artistic pieces. This particular hummingbird picture seen above is a personal favourite, made by BellePapiers.
Readers, do you have further suggestions for creative ways in which vintage buttons can be used?
