Robbing the Button Box for Easter

March 11, 2012
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...



Pinterest - (My favorite)
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!

  4. Oh my goodness these are adorable. I would love to go through your button box! Can't wait to see what you do with these.

  5. I also found you via "Under the table and dreaming" link party. Gotta love those parties as so many projects are featured, like treasures.

  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.

  7. These are really cute! Nice idea and nicely done! Love the pink one!

  8. Love your button eggs, they are so cute and what a clever idea!

  9. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Shabby Sweet Tea.' Your blog is lovely, and your photos are full of life! I really like the button eggs. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would emjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is such a delight. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day. Oh, I am interested in family history too, as you are.

  11. Very nice your button eggs!

  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

  13. Visiting from Transformation Thursday! I love this project! Such a great idea and you are truly talented!

    Thanks for the inspiration.


  14. Anything is cuter with buttons (and ribbon). I hope you will link up to my Hippity Hop Easter Project Hop.

  15. These are so adorable! I love this idea. I have lots of buttons and just might have to try something like this. Thank you for sharing at TTF and have a wonderful week!

  16. Oh my goodness! Those are too cute! I inherited my grandma's button collection and I'm super picky about what I use them for. This project would be perfect bc I could decorate each year and think of her. I found you through Itsy Bitsy Paper's linky party. Thanks for sharing! :)

  17. This is just what I was looking for - I want to try a button egg - I've made button wreaths which always turn out so nice, this looks easy! I'm following you now...
