Got a box or jar full of buttons carefully saved by your mother or grandmother? For 2015 I’m in search of great ways to put those buttons to use. Here is this week’s idea:
As a teenager I played around with resin and had lots of fun with it, so when I saw this button resin bacelet it took me back a bunch of years. Most of my creations were with sea shells, I never thought of using buttons or making a bracelet. This could be a fun project to do with a small group and teach them the craft of working with resin and sharing stories and memories of those whose buttons you are using or ancestors who also enjoyed crafting with unusual materials. Have you ever worked with resin? Click on the photo above for a step by step tutorial.
It would be a good idea to document where the buttons for your project came from and any relevant stories or information about that person or family. If you are looking for more button crafts, check out my Pinterest board.
