Button up !







I love buttons can you tell?

These little decorations or

place settings can be whipped up very quickly and

you're also doing a good thing by recycling your old

spice jars .

The buttons were simply

threaded on fine wire and

matching ribbon was added

to disguise the white lid with the holes in it .

Fill the jars with buttons , beads ,lollies or even rice coloured

with food colouring . Just make sure the rice is really dry before adding to the jars .

Aren't they cute ?

Wonderful and very colourful too Clare. A great way to display your buttons and also a good idea for recycling the spice jars. I had no idea that is what you used until I read that you did. Great stuff :)

Hello Clare, I received your lovely card and surprise inside this morning. Thank you. I think I need your imagination my buttons are kept in a tartin coloured tin. I especially liked the spice jar button. I bought two cards of buttons the other day at the local Good Sammy's. I have noticed shops today have very few four holed buttons mainly only two holes are available when I saw these I knew straight away they were coming home with me. Have a wonderful weekend.

A very clever and pretty way to display buttons, must show my mum.

It's always lovely to meet new bloggers and those cupcakes look delish, both edible and not.
