18 Ingenious DIY Button Crafts

I love buttons. If you’re like me, you have thousands of buttons that just sit in your craft area and you never know how to use them! I seriously have a whole shelf of mason jars full of buttons. Recently I decided that it was time to put them to use. Today I’ve rounded up 18 different DIY tutorials that incorporate buttons.  A lot of the projects that I’m featuring today will use up a lot of your button stash.  If you’re a daily coffee drinker, I would recommend checking out #16. The Fabric Coffee Sleeve is going to be your best friend and it shares a unique way to use buttons.


I believe my favorite DIY button craft is #11 which is the Giant Button Garland from Little Red Window! I love how easy the tutorial is and I think this would look awesome in my craft room.

    I came thinking these were pins rather than buttons, but found myself checking out the coffee sleeve project. Nice work!

    I am like you! I have more buttons than I know what to do with. I particularly love the gift wrap, earrings, and bracelet ideas. The garland is a great project for a craft room, too.
