Crafty Friday 10/1 - Buttons

Happy Friday everyone!! Can you believe it's already October??? Where did September go?

This week I need your help. I was given a gallon size ziploc bag full of buttons. They are mostly red, green and white (kind of Christmasy) and various sizes.

What do I do with them????

I was thinking of making some gingerbread Christmas ornaments and sewing on some of the buttons, but what other projects can I use these buttons with? Do you have any ideas?

I don't really play with buttons much even in my sewing so I'm not sure what to do with all of these, but I'm hoping for a few projects the kids can make. I'd love for you to share ideas, suggests and even links to projects on the net if you can.
So what have you been up to this week?

  1. I'm crazy for buttons and I put them on everything. Cards, tags, boxes, pillows, stockings, wall art, you name it. Glue, sew, nails through the button holes. I even layer smaller buttons over bigger buttons! You could make a button wreath ornament, just string on some wire and make a circle. OK I think I like buttons :)

  2. I use them in hair accessories and Halloween decorations at the moment. You can also stack them and make ornaments for in your Christmas tree :)

  3. How about a gingerbread house, one that you could keep from year to year. Instead of candy, decorate with buttons!

    Thanks for hosting. It's my first time linking.

  4. I was just looking for some Christmassy buttons the other day! Lots of people use them to embelish their quilts - something I have yet to try.

  5. Following from boost my blog friday
    have a nice weekend

  6. You can make a big Christmas tree out of cereal box carboard with the children. Paint it green and use the buttons to make ornaments.
