Robbing the Button Box for Easter

I have a big rubbermaid tub of old buttons so I have been looking on Pinterest for a project to use them.

This is the first one I found and I actually pinned it for later use.

Then I found the styrofoam button eggs...

Now for my button eggs...
I painted a base color on the styrofoam eggs and glued on buttons with Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue. I will show you them individually and all together now, but in next week's posts I will use them in my displays.










Two of them are from old metal buttons.

Look for them in Easter Vignettes to come!

  6. Wow, you sure do have a huge button stash, but I sure like what you did with them. I wish I had as many buttons as you do, so I could make a few of these myself. Looking forward to seeing where you showcase them. Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration over at Sunday's Best.

  12. Stopping by from Thrifty Things Friday. These are so cute. I am trying to collect buttons for my new little granddaughter. My daughter remembers threading buttons at her grandmother's house and I too did the same at my grandmother's house. So I'm trying to carry on the tradition. I think these are so adorable!~Ames
