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!


  1. Now, that's what I call a transformation...!Good job!!!

  2. What a great idea! I have tons of buttons that need a makeover...
