Lots of people think of brooches as old lady-accessories. I don't, I love them. In my opinion, brooches are awesome. Perfect to spice up a bag or to give some va-va-voom to a white tee. Oh, and don't get me started on brooches and blazers: a match made in heaven! Preferably a whole bunch of them, and the more bling, the better. And how about pinning one to a chunky chain necklace?
What you'll need
- fast drying glue
- pliers or scissors, in case your buttons don't have flat backs
Use your pliers or a pair of scissors to remove the backs of the non-flat-back buttons, mine are made of plastic, so this was easy peasy.
Most of the time, I'm a pretty messy crafter, so I used a piece of paper to protect my workspace when I started with this part. Assemble the brooches before glueing away and see which combo works the best for you. After that, let the glueing begin!
Let the assembled buttons dry and after that, glue the pins to the backs.
