Recycling Old Buttons

Recycling Old Buttons

Having acquired probably thousands of old buttons over the years, my main idea is to give them all, at some point, a second chance. Recycling them, usually not in the way they were designed to be used, as fasteners on clothing, but as decorative and creative pieces of artwork. Also in this section, of Button Craft, you will see my original idea of creating little character “Button Craft – ‘Button Buddy’ Brooches – Recycling Old Buttons ” as Brooches and on Button Craft – My ‘Button Buddy’ Characters. This little wooden box has been covered with what we now consider to be out of fashion old brass and pewter buttons. On their own they seem worthless, not so, now arranged as decorative and beautiful on this little trinket box!

Below are other little trinket boxes covered in Recycled Old Buttons
