If you're anything like me, you have more fabric and craft supplies than you actually have projects in mind. You see something that sparks your interest, and you have to bring it home and save it for a rainy day... and you seem to find such goodies faster than the rain seems to come. Fret not. We're going to take care of a little bit of that stash today. So, get your jars of buttons out (you know, the ones you snipped off sweaters long since donated) and let's get to it!
You will need:
- Brass Tacks
- Contact Cement*
|* always read the warning labels on products. This contact cement has highly toxic fumes and should only be used with proper ventilation. Proper ventilation meaning use a respirator, or go outside! Safety first!|
|Step One: Sort through your buttons! I had several jars worth, as a desk I recently bought had drawers full of sewing supplies|
|Step Six: use your completed pins to hang reference materials, photos, cards from blog buds, whathaveyou! Enjoy the tactile Pinterest. It's awful pretty!|
There you have it! This project was inspired by a set of pink button tacks I found at Staples. For the $.69 it cost me to pick up some brass tacks, I busted a bunch of my craft button stash (I sorted out some things to donate!) and made use of old things I had laying around. Plus, these are WAY cuter than the $20 for 14 pins I found at the store! And that's a good thing.
