Now I know all us little sewists have a pile of scrap fabric lying about but – and maybe it’s just me – do you also have an over-abundance of buttons in random sizes and colors?
Come on now. I know it’s not just me!
Well I found some really cute Eastery crafts to put that bucket of buttons to good use!

I realise these aren’t specifically for Easter, but the colors are perfect! And I can’t help thinking what I wouldn’t have given as a kid for a pair of these with my Easter outfit! (Okay let’s be honest, I’d totally rock these now!)
4) DIY Spring Button Flowers

It really never occurred to me how much buttons could look like flowers, but now I can’t unsee it. It’s giving me whole new ideas for how to use buttons on my Scrap Animals.
5) Felt Button Butterflies

Super cute way to use up random buttons AND bits of leftover felt. BONUS! I’m looking at these lil butterflies thinking of all the ways I could use them – on jeans, a jacket, to dress up a boring tote bag. They would also make adorable hair clips!
6) Button Easter Eggs

This topiary would be an absolutely perfect centerpiece for Easter dinner!
This last one isn’t a diy tutorial, just a ridiculously cute scrapbook layout, but I can totally think of tons of ways to use this idea:
