Button Make-Over

This is my button make-over! I got these plastic buttons from the craft store. At first, I thought I would use them just as they are. One day, the buttons were just sitting innocently on the counter top. I had been painting other projects when I looked around for something else to paint. There they were, my little victims, sitting in there plastic bag!!!

I just couldn't help myself! I thought "wouldn't they look pretty in pink!" Then I just had to have a green one , a blue one, a yellow one...

And here they are! All pretty in their new spring wardrobe.

I did a couple of strawberries, flowers, lots of dots.

Sometimes I just have to do this tedious sort of little project! Of course, now I need to do more!! It's addictive!

Crazy With Velvet Strawberries!

I' ve been making many velvet strawberries lately. Everytime I try to stop making them, I find more ribbon and buttons to adorn them! And then of course I can't stop myself from sewing them up!!!

All strawberries are covered with crystal seed beads. Makes them even more shabby chic!

I've handpainted all these buttons. I thought I would give them more of a spring time look!

They make great adornments for bulletin boards. If you want to check them out, they are available at
