Use acrylic inks to add a colorful touch to plain buttons. Learn how to make Bright Button Clothespins from Tiffany Windsor that you can use to display pictures, important papers and more. Button craft ideas allow you to great creative with items you already have on hand.

Use a cosmetic sponge to distribute ink on the surface of each button. While the buttons dry, apply the ink to each clothespin. Adhere buttons to the clothespins and apply a gloss spray. This craft is super vesatile - you can turn it into a photo holder, a magnet and more. To create the magnet, apply a magnetic strip to the back of the clothespin. You can also use a Cool2Cast mold to create the base of a stand for a photo holder. Poke holes in the wet Cool2Cast and stick in skewers. You can then glue the dyed buttons to the skewers.
