ok, here goes my first craft project post...
I have TONS of old buttons and am always trying to think of creative ways to use them so when I saw a necklace made from buttons at my local bead shop, Panda's Crossing, I knew I had to have one! Since I'm WAY to impatient to wait for the next class, I begged Donna to show me how to make it immediately! She gave me a crash course, which is basically all it takes since this is SO easy! I went home, dug out my box of buttons, some wire and made this...
After learning a few tricks, I tried again...
Here is a close up of the buttons...complete with part of my cat's feet! She thinks she is supposed to be in every picture I take!
Now I just have to go in search of the perfect outfit to wear it with!
Since I had the buttons and the wire to make these, the only cost to me was the cord and clasp which were only a few dollars. I'm going to try some different things with this idea and will share those
if WHEN I get them complete. So dig out those buttons you have buried in a closet and get creative!
