Wooden Heart Buttons

February 6, 2016RaChil Luke

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!
titledfinaleFind out how to make your own wooden buttons below!



  • Wooden heart pieces
  • Watercolors
  • 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!

      Thanks Katie! I had to come up with it a little more last-minute than I like to but I am glad I finally thought of something to do with the hearts after I got two projects out of the cameras :)
