Thought buttons were only for clothes? Well not anymore…. There are so many ways you can use buttons to dress your outfits, and I don’t mean on your clothes. Here is a fun brooch made out of buttons. It’s easy and affordable, you can use any buttons you want. I made this brooch with metal and pearl buttons.
- Take the pliers and cut the shanks off the buttons. Note: the largest button maybe hard to cut shank off, you don’t have to cut that one off.
- Take the largest button and apply glue in the back of the button and glue it on to the pin back. Glue it directly next to the shank. Take the 24l/15mm button (which is the next size down) and apply glue on the back. Glue part of the button on the large and the other part on the pin back.
- Do the same with the smaller button, Apply glue on the back and glue part of it on the button and part of it on the pin back.
- take the bigger pearl and glue it a little to the side of the small metal button.
- then take the small pearl button and glut it next to the bigger pearl and directly on to the pin back.
Decorating your children’s room can be so fun, makes you feel like a kid again with all the arts and crafts involved. It’s the best part of a room because the creativity is endless and nothing can look to childish. Which is why decided to make this super cool picture frame holder for boys room. Since I’m in love with the 3-d pop-out picture frames i decided to incorporate it into the frame holder for pictures, here’s is what I came up with.
- Step1: Take your empty picture frame and remove the glass.
- Step 2: Measure and cut the felt to fit within the picture frame. Then hot glue it the closing part of the frame.
- Step 3: Measure and cut the pom-pom fringe, you can measure it diagonally or horizontally on the frame before cutting, then t-pin or tape down
- Step 4: Take one end of the felt ribbon and hot glue it to the frame (be sure to glue it under the pom-pom fringe)
- Step 5: Once it is dry, pull the ribbon down in a straight line and hot glue it to the end of the board and cut.
- Step 5: Continue steps four and five with all three ribbons, alternating colors.
- Step 6: Once all the ribbons have been hot glued, hot glue the pom-pom fringe and remove the t-pins or tape.
- Step 7: Hot glue the flower buttons in desired locations around the frame.
- Step 8: Glue the letters to your child’s name above the pom-pom fringe. (I printed out my letters from the computer)
- Step 9: Optional: I cut the pom-poms off the extra trim and glued them on the ribbons.

Ever since I saw this picture of design team Badgely-Mischka’s horse farm home with its killer monogrammed bed pillows, I have been loving them. I think esthetically it happens to look really cool. It looks crisp and modern and adds a graphic element to an otherwise simple bed.

You can make your own gorgeous monogramed pillows with nothing but a pillow, the trim of your choice and a needle and thread! For a kids room, I would love to make the monogram out of a lot of buttons, sewed on to the pillow in the shape of a letter! or an edgier look, I would use a nailheads to add a little bit of rock n roll to a room… For the simplest and most refined look, I would use our chrome spun grosgrain ribbon and some iron on tape to create a chic monogram!
Here’s what I came up with for a children’s room
- First Step- Take out the cushion/feathers/Stuffing from the pillow, the write out the desired letter and design with Tailors chalk on the pillow
- Second Step- (can be done in two ways)
- First Way: Place the buttons on the traced letter and put tape over the buttons for a strong hold. Then machine stitch the buttons onto the pillow case and remove the tape when you’re are finished.
- Second Way: Hand-sew each button onto the traced letter, if you are not able to machine stitch.
- Third Step- When you are done sewing on the buttons take your ribbon (any other trim) and machine or hand-stitch the desired design around the buttoned letter.
- Fourth Step- Re-stuff your pillow and find the perfect place for your new pillow.
