Quick Tip: DIY Button Brooches

Do you have buttons that are too pretty to keep hidden in a jar? Well, with this easy idea you can now wear them as jewellery without compromising their potential as buttons!
Several pretty shank buttons
The same number of safety pins
Step 1: Push a safety pin through the back side of your shirt so the bar sticks out the front.
Step 2: (View from the front side of the shirt) Slip the shank of a button through the bar of the safety pin so the button is on the front of the sweater.
Step 3: Poke the pin back into the sweater and secure it in place. 
Step 4: Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 to make a cluster of button brooches.
You can also turn necklace pendants into brooches by slipping the bar of the pin through the jump ring of the pendant. This technique is super useful if your shirt doesn't have a good frame for wearing a necklace but would still look good with some jewels on the side!
