Pinterest button necklace

Zhevonne's NDAD Creation

I loved this necklace that Zhevonne submitted! Anything that inspires you on Pinterest that you can recreate on your own is always the way to go. See her lovely creation!

I made one of these for an art project and because it turned out so cool, I made another one! I saw a version of this on Pinterest and thought I could create a copycat. Now here it is :) It's a button necklace made with buttons, felt and chain. Super easy!

I used buttons from my stash and then bought a few from the craft store for RM 0.30 cent a button. It's basically USD zero or something, LOL! I began by pinning the buttons to a piece of felt.

Once all of my buttons were pinned...

...I started to glue the button backs down and in place.

Once everything was glued, I started to trim around the edges of the buttons to cut off the excess felt, leaving me with one buttoned applique.

Next, I took some chain and hand stitched it to each end of the button applique. (If you don't use a clasp like me, make sure there's enough chain so you can fit your necklace over your head.)

From buttons in my stash, to a brand new, blingy necklace!! I get compliments from friends all the time which makes me super excited that I created this myself.

Thank you for inspiring me Miss M.

Thank YOU for submitting your amazing necklace, Zhevonne! Taking inspiration from Pinterest is one of my favorite things to do - I'm constantly inspired by outfits and projects that other people submit and then in turn I create something that makes sense for me! I just love this so much and it's an awesome way to repurpose old buttons that aren't getting any use. It's also a perfect DIY gift for your friends for the holidays as well - got to keep that in mind this year! Keep creating, Z! xo
