Quick and Easy Brooch

This almost feels like cheating rather than making!

All you need is a pretty button, strong glue and a brooch finding:

You may recognise the button as one I bought in Cardiff. It was bought for this purpose. All I did was glue the finding on the back:

And ta dah! I have a brooch (or my mother in law will do).
Here is is pinned to my jumper:

And in a box to give to her:

Please excuse how dark the photos are – artificial light and phone cameras aren’t a great match!

This is made with an expensive, hand painted button bought for this purpose, but you can use plainer buttons. I have previously shared button brooches made using a plastic button and a painted wooden one layered together and plainer buttons layered for the diamond jubilee.

Hopefully the original Mrs M will like this!

  1. Very cute and simple crafting idea. Especially considering all the fantastic buttons you can find but don’t have a use of.
