Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a good February. Today’s project was only made because my original plan was foiled by a new printer at my local Staples. I think this definitely counts as a silver lining to that grey cloud though as I’m totally in love with the finished results!
Find out how to make your own wooden buttons below!
- Wooden heart pieces
- Small drill bit (sorry! I forgot the size. I bought it a long time ago) (also you don’t need the drill itself)
Step 1: Paint your hearts/circles containing hearts. My friend Katie sent me some overflow from her scrap booking supplies and included these Studio Calico wood veneer hearts.
Step 2: Drill 2 holes, vertically in the center of your piece. I thought I’d drill them but that ended up being like trying to blow out birthday candles with a hurricane, so I ended up using my fingers to turn the bit. If you have a pin-vise that would be super handy here!
Step 3: Sew them to something! I wish I had a nice red cardigan for the big buttons or a collared button-up for the small hearts. What I did have was this beanie in a valentines-esque shade. Add one big button and two tiny ones and I have a cute new hat! I like how it’s not too over the top but if that’s your thing you can always add more buttons!
