Home Decorating Crafts with Buttons

Home decorating crafts with buttons are fun and personal to create. Buttons are cheap and come in a variety of styles and colors. This article will provide you with detailed instructions for creating several home decorating crafts with buttons.


A fun home decorating craft that uses buttons is a lampshade. This craft is a great way to add your personal style to your lampshade. For this craft you will need many buttons, a hot glue gun, and hot glue sticks.

Start by deciding how you will like your buttons to be arranged. You can create several patterns, or you can choose to randomly attach the buttons. You can even make shapes out of the buttons such as flowers, stars, or hearts.

To create this custom lamp use the hot glue to start attaching buttons in your predetermined pattern. You can use a pencil to draw outlines of your pattern. You can even add some buttons to the base of the lamp as well if you like. When the glue has cooled replace the shade on the lamp and it is ready to be used.


Another easy home decorating craft that utilizes buttons is a centerpiece. For this project you will need a glass jar, ribbon, scissors, a hot glue gun, hot glue sticks, and a candle that fits in the jar. You can make several candles for this centerpiece, or you can use one candle. You may even decorate a large jar and fill it with several long candles.

Start by cutting a piece of ribbon that is slightly longer than the rim of the jar. Glue the ribbon along the edge to cover the threads. Then add the buttons to the rest of the jar using the glue in. Finally place the candle inside and arrange on the table.


For a unique and easy home decorating idea try adding style to your curtains. For this craft you will need buttons, fabric glue, and a pencil or piece of chalk. Start by drawing a pattern on your curtain lightly with the pencil. Then use the buttons to fill in your pattern. Allow the fabric glue to dry overnight before returning the curtain to its original spot.

Buttons are cheap and creative; they add a special touch to your home decorating ideas. These crafts are fun and simple, and you can complete them with little supplies and little time. Try these home decorating crafts with your extra buttons.
