DIY Wood Buttons


As you have seen on a variety of posts on here, I am a loom knitter. I like to make a variety of yarn crafts including scarves and hats. Often times I like my own to be adorned with some kind of flower or buttons and have made pottery buttons to use, but I have also made my own wood slice buttons.

A couple of them in the picture I drilled a hole at the top so that I can use to make a pendant in my jewelry making, I don't have a plan quite yet for them but thought since I was drilling all my holes I would go ahead and create a couple and hope I become inspired, maybe I will try a little wood burning on them later on, but for not we have plain wood slice buttons and I can't wait to make a hat and put a collection of 3 or so together on them.

Buttons can be expensive and if you don't have any you can re-use that came extra with articles or clothing, than why not make your own!

Such a neat idea. I can see this on an old sweater too - very unique!

That is a good idea. I like being able to reuse items like that.

These buttons would look very awesome on a purse.They could also make a great lacing tool for kids.
