This cute and colorful flower button is a perfect Spring craft project for the kids. Not only do you get rid of unwanted buttons but you can keep the kids busy and make a cheerful brooch all at the same time.
A creative way to use up all those extra buttons, this floral accessory is pretty enough to wear almost everywhere.
You Will Need
* Six small buttons
* One large button
* One very small button
* A pin backing
Step 1: Make a circle
Arrange the six matching buttons in a circle, flat side up, with the edges touching. Place a dot of glue on each button nearest to the center of the circle.
Hot glue or regular craft glue won't work.
Step 2: Affix large button
Affix the large button in the center of the circle, flat side down. Place a dab of glue in the center of the large button.
Use a contrasting color for the center of shades of a single color.
Step 3: Glue on small button
Place the smallest button on the glue in the center of the large button and let the glue dry for 24 hours.
Step 4: Attach pin backing
Glue the pin backing onto the center of the back of the button flower.
Step 5: Finish with felt
Glue a small, circular piece of felt over the pin backing. Let it dry for a few hours and it'll be ready to wear.
