Cute as a Button - Amazing Button Crafts from Around the Web

Lately I keep coming across the most adorable button crafts. I seriously want to do them all.

The Freckled Nest has two fantastic button crafts that are so cute I had to share them both.

First, Spring Button Flowers - This is adorable and I love the simplicity of it.


Second, a Framed Cork Display Case for a Button Collection - This reminds me of butterfly specimens and would be perfect to hang in a craft room.



The Factory Direct Craft Blog has a wonderful tutorial on how to make fun button stamps using wine corks and interesting buttons.



Ellen's Creative Passage shows how to make a few different beautiful button bracelets. I especially love this blue one.


I saw this button color palette at Creating While Waiting. What a cute idea! This would look wonderful in a craft area.



I love this button explosion t-shirt from iCandy Handmade. This looks like such a fun way to dress up or personalize a plain t-shirt.




At MarthaStewart.com there is a great simple tutorial on how to turn your favorite buttons into cute little fridge magnets.



I love love love scanner art and I think it can be such a fun activity to do with kids (or all on your own). Artful Adventures shares a wonderful tutorial on how to create scanner art with your kids, and I love this button scanner art.


New House Project shares a great button matching activity for kids.



I saw this homemade button clock on JAMdesigns (ETSY). What a fantastic idea and how adorable this would look in a kids room or nursery.



This button sheep wall hanging from Fowl Single File is just too cute. I love the white buttons against the green background. This would be so precious in a nursery as well.



Artsy Crafty Babe has a great and helpful tutorial on how to make these button flower pins. They look like a lot of fun to make.



I love these simple button bobby pins from A Homemaker's Journal. These are so adorable, and I especially love the buttons that Christina used here.


These girly button rings from Little Birdie Secrets are so cute. Little Birdie Secrets also has a few other great button tutorials that you have to check out.


This monogrammed button letter A from American Crafts is amazing. This would be a spectacular project to hang in a nursery or kid's room.


I hope you all enjoy looking at these great button crafts and projects. Let me know if you try any of them yourselves. Also if you have been featured feel free to grab the featured button (on the right sidebar) for your blog.

Here are a couple of my button crafts:
