Crafts with Buttons

Many crafters have a large collection of buttons, either those which have been collected frugally off of clothing or, if they are lucky enough, a collection of buttons that was given to them by mothers and grandmothers.Buttons in Tin Spilled

My grandmother had a huge button collection that I loved to sort through and play with as a child.  Oh, how I wish I had that giant button collection today.

How do I display a button collection?

For those beautiful antique or unique buttons, it would be lovely to put them on display. A pretty bowl, a clear container or mason jar show off the button collection beautifully. 

It is especially nice if the collection is put in something that allows others to touch and explore the buttons.Buttons in Jars

In a home decorated in the farmhouse or country style, a jar of buttons out on display fits right into the decor.

As a crafter, there are so many things that can be created with buttons!

If you, like me, were not gifted a giant collection of buttons, buttons of every color and size can be purchased at craft stores.

This page is a compilation of crafts with buttons for adults to enjoy.  If children’s button crafts are what you are looking for, check out our button crafts for kids page.

Button Art Tree

Directions for a button art tree are very popular right now, and this page has several variations of button tree art to explore. The Four Seasons Button Tree Wall Art is a wonderful use of seasonal colored buttons on painted canvases.

The colors in this four seasons button art tree are very bright and vivid.  I might try earth-toned paint to allow this art to fit nicely in any home decor.

There are also winter and holiday button art tree tutorials!  Make the fun candy cane tree with ribbon, a styrofoam cone, and red and white buttons.  It is so festive!

Try something different with the crocheted Amigurumi Christmas tree decorated with buttons.  It is so cute and can be used as a holiday decoration, an attachment to a gift package, or a stuffie!

Amigurumi crochet is fun to do and even more fun to enjoy after it’s been crafted.  Be sure to take a look at our Amigurumi Crochet project page!

Button Flower Crafts

Such cute button flower craft tutorials can be found below!  Be sure to check out the Button Art tutorial from Christine’s crafts.  Her directions are for any shape or design desired, and a button flower craft would be perfect using this technique.

The tutorial for the Button Bouquet In Thread Spool from The Sum of Their Stories shows how to create a playful spray of flowers in a vase made from a thread spool.  So cute!
