Buttons are an inexpensive, fun craft material that can be used for a wide variety of art projects. With a number of options for jewelry, office supplies, and home décor, there are enough ideas here to keep you creating for many hours. Whether you are making crafts for yourself, for gifts, or to sell, there is something here that will fit your interests and needs. Many of these projects are kid friendly. Happy creating!

Please note that regardless of other glue recommendations in tutorials, I highly recommend using only E-6000 for all magnets, tacks, and button jewelry that requires gluing. You will need to use it in a well well-ventilated, but it is worth it for the extra strength it ensures. Scrapbook glue, hot glue gun glue, and Mod Podge are fine for paper projects and wall decor.

1. Button Bracelets

One of the most popular options for button bracelets in charm bracelet style button bracelets where buttons are attached to links with jump rings. I have included several examples of other button bracelets, too. All of these designs can be completed with basic wire or bead weaving skills. Fun options for button charm bracelets include using buttons of variation sizes, experimenting with monochromatic and multicolored palettes, and added beads and/or charms.

Button earrings are so fun and unique. I guarantee that you will always get comments when you wear any style of button earrings. You can create simple post earrings with single buttons or double stacked buttons. I have included an example photo of double stacked dangle earrings, too, as well as a couple examples of button cluster dangle earrings.

3. Button Necklaces

I have concentrated most of my button jewelry energy on bracelet and earring designs and have only created a handful of necklaces. You can take any of the previously featured bracelet and earring designs and transfer the concept to necklaces. Pay attention to how the buttons hang and do some "test runs" with each new design to see if the concept wears as well as it looks flat.

4. Button Rings

I have not found a good craft store source for purchasing ring blanks. If you have one, please feel free to leave it in the comments. There are numerous resources for purchasing them online. Buttons rings are insanely fun and work up really quickly, which is good because all of your friends will want them when they see yours.

Buttons pins follow the same concept as button rings except that you attach a pin back instead of a ring blank. Pin backs are available at most craft stores, although normally only in one, maybe two, sizes around 1" (1.3cm) to 1.5" (3.8 cm) long. If you're looking for anything smaller or larger, you'll most likely have to look online. If you don't want to wear a pin on your clothing, it will make a great addition to a purse, backpack, or electronic case (i.e. smartphone case, laptop bag).

6. Button Hair Pins

You can see in the photo examples here that I prefer to use bobby pins with large flat ends because it is easy to attach buttons securely to these type of pins. If you have trouble finding them, they're often labeled as a covered button or fabric button supply, as many people choose to use them for that as well. Alternatively, you can use the black and brown pins that are available at any drug store or big box store. Many people find these type of pins more comfortable, even though they will be harder to use for crafting.

Buttons magnets were the first non-jewelry item that I started making for craft shows, and they're still one of my most popular items. No matter what type of show I'm doing, there is always interest in the magnets. I think that it's largely because so many people use refrigerator magnets. Even if you already have a collection of them, who can't use a few more? Typically I've used round craft magnets, but you can opt for neodymium magnets, which will hold 5-6 sheets of paper.

8. Button Tacks

Flat back thumb tacks are tough to find anywhere anymore because they're considered to be dangerous. You can opt for slightly curved tacks, but I recommend looking for the flat ones. Again, searching for craft tacks or fabric button tacks can yield better results than a general search. If you regularly use a bulletin board at home or work for any variety of purposes, button tacks will add a cheerful touch.

I have only just started to explore the possibilities for buttons in my own greeting card designs. I've included photo examples from a few other artists as well as links to my button greeting card articles for lots more inspiration. I am always amazed at the creativity out there, and button greeting card designs are no exception.

10. Button Wall Art

This is another crafting area that I've only just started to explore. I created the piece on the right as a wedding present for some good friends. This was the first piece I've made like this, and it will certainly not be the last. I have included links below for button letter art tutorials. Search button canvas on Pinterest for a number of great button wall art designs, including more letters as well as words, hearts, and trees.

        I use E-6000 for all of my button crafts that require gluing. There are a few beaded earring designs I make that require glue, and I use super glue for those tiny jobs. Loctite brand is great. I order my flat top rings from an Etsy shop called coverbuttoncity. Michaels is great for purchasing small quantities of items like that. However, if you're looking for larger quantities, I suggest ordering online.

        Glad I came across this! I've made a few dangly button earrings for myself, but I used thin thread and I've tried to make some studs out of them as well. My problems though, for the dangly earrings, sometimes the string would come out of the earring hook and for the studs, I haven't been able to find a glue that actually holds them onto the backing. Any suggestions for glue? I've tried hot glue and cement glue. Also, I don't know if anyone's answered this, but I've found flat top rings at Michaels

        I especially liked the magnets and brooches! Wow! button bracelets, how creative! Where do you buy the buttons, at craft stores? I like the tip about the glue. This also reminds me of when I worked with Fimo clay (is it fimo?) the clay that you make jewelry with and bake in the oven, have you heard of it? I'd roll out like purple than blue then yellow and taper them, then make them into a "roll" and cut slices which where then used to cover a ball of clay and make a turtle...

        These are ideas are so cute and interesting. And your hub is ironic for me. Today I went to the local farmer's market and saw a new place called "Buttons." There were buttons making up the store sign. So, I was excited thinking this was a new crafter's table. Nope. Instead it was a eatery. But the upshot was one of my former college students was working at the place. So it was cool talking to her.

        Great hub, but you already know how awesome and useful it is :)

        These are so, so cute! I love your ideas, Rose! The button hair pins make me wish I had a girl - they are adorable. I love the paper crafts with buttons, too - I might do something with a Christmas tree and little buttons as ornaments for our Christmas cards this year!
