Well I did choose a craft for February.... button craft. I didn't get very far with it! Due to circumstances I decided not to choose anything new for March but to try and progress with the buttons.
I LOVE buttons. Old, new, plastic, wood, glass, ceramic, you name it I love them. There is such variation and the colours..........swoon!
So what were my plans at the start of February for all my buttons? Well I wanted to have a go at button pictures and also button jewellery. I have seen the most gorgeous creations on the internet and in fact I have several Pinterest boards dedicated to them. Check them out here by clicking the links.:
Buttons Look at these pretty ones. Plain white, but oh so beautiful.
Button Art Wonder how many buttons it took to complete this?
Button Craft Such a pretty bracelet.
Unfortunately despite so much inspiration and so many ideas in my head I have only actually made one thing so far.
I made a button heart picture as a valentines day gift for Simon. It is done in shades of blue as I wanted it to go in our living room.
It was much more time consuming that I had thought it would be. Not to mention messy! I used a glue gun and you know that stuff gets everywhere. Why can't they make a glue gun that doesn't make those long stringy bits?
Anyway, I was quite pleased with the overall effect. It's not bad for a first attempt.
As that was the only thing I managed to make I decided to continue with button craft for March as well. So far I have not done anything else. I have 2 more weeks so you never know. I'll keep you updated.
