Buttons Galore & More: Make DIY Button Filled Christmas Ornaments with the Kids!


Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing my latest DIY project that I created for the  Buttons Galore & More Design Team

Before I talk about my project, I wanted to briefly say that as a member of the design team I do get free products to create awesome DIY projects. More specifically, Buttons Galore & More is sponsoring this post. With that being said, as a member of their design team, my projects will appear on the Buttons Galore & More blog instead of mine own. However, I will write these types of posts to keep you guys up-to-date about what is going on!

Now that we have all of that out of the way, let's get back to the project!

The project that I made for Buttons Galore & More this month was a bit different because it had to do with Christmas in July. Specifically, the project that I made was a Button Filled Christmas Ornament! This button filled Christmas ornament was so easy to make and didn't involve any type of special tools or glue. Due to that, you can make a ton of these ornaments over the course of a weekend and get your kids involved in making these ornaments as well!

For my button filled ornament, I used a variety of Christmas themed buttons like Buttons Galore ''Christmas'' Button Bonanza and Buttons Galore ''Holiday Fun-Holly'' 3D Buttons. However, you can create these button filled ornaments in any color, in any shape, and use any type of buttons that you like.

DIY: World's Greatest Crafter Sign


Hello Everyone!

When it comes to gift-giving and home décor, I am a real sucker for signs. I just think signs are such a cute way to spice up your home décor and to simply display your own thoughts / passions. With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to create a small sign that could be customize to fit anyone’s taste and be a great handmade gift.

So today, I am going to show you how to make a ''World’s Greatest Crafter'' sign!

Now, before we get started, I would like to say that this sign does not have to be about crafting. For example, your sign could say ''World’s Greatest Nurse'', ''World’s Greatest Dad'', and so on. I decided to go the crafter route because I had received some adorable Sewing buttons from Buttons Galore & More. However, you could change the sign to say whatever phrase you like. With that being said, just make sure you have buttons that correlate back to whatever phrase you chose.

If you want to learn how to make your own ''World's Greatest'' sign, then keep reading below!

Supplies
Wooden Sign
Wire
Pilers
Plaid: Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint in Key West
Foam Brush
Awl
Letter Stamps
Black Ink Pad


Step 1: Paint your sign on the front and back. Then set the whole thing aside to dry.


Step 2: Using your awl, poke three holes (that are evenly spaced) at the bottom of your sign.


Step 3: Using your letter stamps and black ink pad, stamp your phrase onto your sign.


Step 4: Grab your wire and attach it to one of your buttons. Then flip your sign over (so the stamped side is facing down) and feed the wire through one of the holes on your sign. Finally, take the extra wire that is sticking out of the hole, and wrap it into a little circle on the front of your sign.

Keep repeating this process with your other buttons.

Once you are happy with how your sign looks, you are ready to hang it up!

I just love this little sign turned out! It would make such a cute gift for someone to either hang in their office at work or in their home.
If want to make one of these signs but are in need of some buttons, then I would check out Buttons Galore & More. On their website, they have a variety of buttons that could be used to represent different career fields, hobbies, and so forth. In addition, on a very random note, I think these signs would make cute gifts for bridesmaids as well. 
If you made this sign, what would yours say?

In addition, this project is perfect to make with your kids because it does not involve any hot or sharp tools. For my sequin coasters, I painted them purple and used the brand new 28 Lilac Lane Sequin Tin in Haunted House. However, you can create these coasters in any color and use any type of sequins that you like.
