After doing my Button Earring DIY for Say Yes to Hoboken last week, I thought of another (rather obvious) DIY for the buttons I had left over.. how about making them into some really cute tacks for your pin board!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Flat-top tacks
- Hot glue gun
If your buttons have a shank on the back of them, use the pincers to cut it off as close as possible to the base.
Heat up your hot glue gun (careful if there are kids around!), position your button with the back facing up. Working quickly, squeeze a spot of hot glue onto the head of a tack and press the tack down firmly into the middle of the back of the button. Hold until it’s mostly set.
Wait until they’re fully cooled before using them… then get pin-crazy! Cute right?!
